TGI Friday's is an American casual dining restaurant. Like other of the same style, the main dishes are not that tasty or inspired. They depends on big food portions, refill drinks, lots of cream, too much fat and cheese everywhere. Finally it ends up with unhealthy but filing your stomach with large amount of food. On the other hand, the... More

Had dinner here after wandering around Dubai mall. Got an outside table with a view of the fountains. The service was fast and efficient. The meal was great.

Unfortunately the Dubai TGI Friday is fake. the only thing that is the same is the logo. Otherwise it's a completely different restuarant. If you have been to a TGI in Europe or America before you will know what I mean. No Jack Daniels ribs, no Jack Daniels sesame chicken strips and no Jack Daniels sauce either :(. One thing... More

I would say that TGI in Dubai is below the average score of TGI's that I've experienced. The food is normal, the drinks (I had a mochito) are poor and in general, I only selected because it was a really crowdy Friday evening in Dubai mall.

I've been there with my family, we were all love the food's taste. Wherever I find the 'Friday's', I get used to find it fully and vibrant, but this one was so quite and almost empty. Anyway, we were enjoy our dinner, and I will come back again when they open the outside balcony again.

Great service and cooking time was short. Excellent staff attitude, however make sure you plan your trip to the cloakrooms as they don't have any inside the restaurant, you need to walk back out to the mall facilities which is a minute or so away.

First of all, the location is a bit hard to find. Me and my friends had a struggle to find it. we have asked to wait by a not so friendly hostess outside. Since my friends really wanted to try the TGI Fridays here in Dubai we waited for almost half an hour but honestly, the food is not that... More

We came for some food here so we would get a nice view of the fountains. The food wasn't the best but it was a very busy night with the fountains being on. The view from the balcony was amazing though!

Can't go wrong with TGI Friday's, you know what you're getting yourself in to! Good food, great location inside the mall but service could improve here slightly, but nevertheless, I had a great time!

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
