It's a unique place in Dubai for its location. Decor, music and overall atmosphere is nice . You'll be lucky to be served by Rayan, his service is implacable and friendly. Food quality is really significant at this restaurant.

Hello, I am not sure if kids are allowed, but you can call and ask. It depends of the age and the timing. I think an early diner is possible. Although I don t think they will be happy as there isn't any attraction for them.
