Dubai Restaurant Review: More Cafe, Dubai Gold & Diamond Park

In a nutshell: extensive menu but mixed food quality.

More Cafe has expanded considerably over the past few years, from 1 cafe in Garhoud they must now have at least 6 scattered around Dubai. There is a similar layout to each one with a cavernous open interior and a warehouse-type feel created by open ceilings exposing the A/C vents and ducts. I've only ever eaten breakfast there or met friends for a coffee - they serve delicious homemade caramel biscuits when you order a hot drink - and since Simon and I were at the Gold & Diamond Park we decided to try that branch for lunch.

The menu is huge and covers foods from all parts of the globe. I do sometimes wonder how restaurants keep such a wide range of food items fresh, but More is such a busy restaurant (we were there on a Tuesday and it was far from empty) that I suppose they have the necessary turnover of diners. I opted for the grilled salmon with salad and french fries whilst Simon went for the butter chicken. The butter chicken was one of the best he has ever had: not too rich, a nice kick but not too spicy and it included sultanas and cashew nuts. Sadly, my experience was not quite so good.

The tomato sauce on my salmon was very sweet and seemed to be just tomato puree - I scraped it off to get to the fish. The salad was OK but was just a bowl of lettuce and on one of my chips I found what looked suspiciously like a hair. I put the chip to the side and told myself it was just some fluff from a jacket or something. Still, I checked every single chip after that! The salmon itself was tender and cooked through, but the disappointing 'sauce' and the questionable chip pretty much put me off the whole meal. The breakfasts I've had there have been excellent and Simon's meal was fantastic so I clearly just chose badly (10 pages of options and I chose the 1 substandard thing!) so I will go back - once the memory of this experience has subsided.


  1. Dear blogger,

    This is a nice article, well-written and interesting from reader's perspective. This might be true, maybe a woven story...We cannot tell whose telling the truth or possibly a lie.

    On the other side...the people involved might be facing unwarranted judgement...they might lose their job...unknowingly because someone believe this without proper investigation...

    "CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT" --- might be but NOT ALWAYS --- it depends on the customer --or it might be MORE than that...
