The Noodle Bowl would be super easy to walk right by. It is nondescript on its best day, but it is so worth a stop. The food has always been amazingly fresh and well seasoned. The service is good, not warm and fuzzy, just efficient and you get what you ordered. I love going in the winter and sitting outside,... More

Noodle Bowl is a small Asian restaurant in Satwa with very basic furniture and minimal decor - it is so ordinary in the exterior that it is almost easy to miss it completely. But we keep going back there for the extraordinary food - the right spices, authentic flavours and fairly large servings. The dim sums are yummy and available... More

Great authentic Malay food. We had fish head curry, duck pancakes, Nasi goreng, sea food hofen and Kam hoeing chicken. All dishes tasted just like the food one can get at a food court in Singapore or KL. But please don't expect much service as the level of service is slow to disinterested. So if you want authentic Malay food... More

My taxi journey will take me 30mins from where I live but that didn't deter me from going over just to have a nasi lemak or a bowl of noodles soup. Satisfying Kopitiam food The food taste slightly different from what I get back home probably because of the lack of pork but it is okay, still taste good. Slice... More

Mover over Michelin restaurant. THIS is my place to be. They got all the best south asian food in town.

This is a hidden gem in Dubai: clean, affordable and most importantly delicious. There's no pork because this is the Middle East, but the prawn and chicken dim sum is really fresh and tasty. Lots of steamed options. There also are great noodles and green Asian vegetable like kai lan and morning glory (kang kong). Lots of Chinese and expats... More

far from fine cuisine but very good noodle soup, good steam stuff, healthy and well served. Service is fast and they are consistent with a steady quality over time. Visit once every 2,3 months.
