Dubai Restaurant Review: Dome Cafe, DIFC

In a nutshell: good food but lacking vegetables so not the best value for money
3/5

There is now a huge choice of restaurants at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and they were all pretty full with the countless office workers based in and around the area. The service at Dome Cafe was slick and we didn't have to wait long for our order to be taken, meal to be served or cheque to be delivered - every lunch is an express business lunch in DIFC I suppose. I have written previously about The Noodle House at DIFC which is more or less underground, the great thing at Dome is that it is part of a strip of restaurants that also have outside seating looking onto the water features of the DIFC courtyard - a much more relaxing environment.


Dome has a fairly extensive menu but they also have daily specials and it was the Monday special of prawns with fried rice that my friend Louissa and I both went for. The menu described the prawns as having bell peppers and courgette but when it came there were only a couple of pieces of each, although plenty of olives - which I don't like. In my experience fried rice also usually has vegetables cooked in with it but this fried rice was cooked with egg and nothing else. The portion of prawns was generous but I was disappointed at the lack of vegetables and at Dhs 65 I would have expected a more rounded dish. It did taste good but can't be compared to the value for money that I found at Cafe Havana last weekend - it's not as though vegetables cost a great deal for a restaurant anyway. I'll know to order a side portion of veg next time anyway!
