Whenever I think of going to a Cafe there a few points which I remember before deciding on a place. Is the ambience and food substantial ? I don't want to be in a tiny place where I can hear the next persons conversation and the food shouldn't be too heavy either. So recently I found a place which fits... More

We live close by and have tried the buns and coffee, while we might have caught it on a bad day the one thing that did not appeal to us was the fact that shisha smoking is allowed inside.

They've actually upped the ante with their buns, they are now stuffed with ice cream :O more on... More

Tried their crepes and found it just about average. With the variety of outlets available at Dubai Mall, many better options to explore.

Didn't know what to expect as the menu had sweet and savoury options. The roti buns have your choice of topping smothered on top and are then baked; the result - delicious. So nice, on the next trip back we had more.

For a quick fill, Roti Mum satisfies your craving. It's not special nor does it give you that "Wow" factor but the Roti Bun is quite tasteful. Very different from the breads you usually buy or eat as it is very soft, buttery and sweet. A hot chocolate drink compliments the bun perfectly. Nice to try.

I've been a big fan of the kopi bun, that moist, light and buttery bread with a coffee flavored crust. Roti Mum cafe is a newer contender. Its location near the entrance of the food court and beside the At The Top entrance would have assured brisk business but on most days this cafe is barely half full (compared to... More

Yesterday, I had a roti bun again after a long time and still tastefully yummy. I am a bread lover. I always buy roti bun whenever I shop at Dubai Mall. I already missed it.
