The Cheesecake Factory
Tasty food, good ambience and a very helpful staff arrive early on weekends or are prepared to wait a minimum of 15 to 20 min as it’s quite a popular joint. Portions are huge; American sized thus order smartly to avoid wasting food and money. One dish can feed two. Items are pricey but the taste and ambience is top notch.
Don’t miss the signature velvet cheesecake; one portion is more than enough for two people.

One of the best restaurants for Indians and Pakistani living or visiting Dubai. Amazingly designed tables with unique buttons to call the waiters. Superb options in highly affordable buffet. Desert options are great. The starters are also very well made. It’s an experience in itself. I love going there again and again. It was our one of best restaurant experiences in Dubai. I love their main course and starters
