Bukhara

Treat yourself to the rich heritage of authentic Indian cuisine. From juicy, blended, tender chunks of impeccably marinated Murgh Malai Kabab to the world renowned Dal Bukhara, whipped up to perfection by cooking it overnight in a traditional way, each dish is a regal, mouth-watering experience. The succulent tandoori feast is low on oil and high on authenticity and taste.

Reviewed By Ken A

Ate here 4 times during our stay. Absolutely authentic taste of North West India you rarely find outside the region. Makes me hungry just thinking of it. Generous portions served of each dish although the Naan bread could be bigger! A relatively tight menu ensures everything is freshly cooked.
Friendly and helpful staff. Rustic environment. Nice ambience. Wonderful.

Al Ayaam Restaurant & Grilling

Reviewed By Samir J - San Francisco, California

Authentic Lebanese restaurant! This place serves authentic Lebanese food in the heart of Umm Al Quwain. Having spent 2 weeks in this town, I came here multiple times. Probably one of the best Lebanese restaurants that I have ever been to. If I am ever in this town again, I will surely drop by.

Aquarius

Reviewed By sayantag

On the Isra weekend , we decided to visit Um al Quwain for no reason other than the fact that we had never been there and had no idea what we were going to do there . On the way searching for places we came across Barracuda resort and zeroed on it .
Needless to say after a lot of navigating we reached there and decided to head over to Aquarius for a late lunch. We sat outside facing the azure blue sea and lapping up the cool breeze in the shade . Unfortunately drinks were off the charts till 7PM due to Isra so we decided to just suck it up and order food .
My friends ordered veg and chicken biryani . i decided to be more adventurous and ordered fish and chips and fresh lime soda . Our order came after a considerable amount of time but we didn't really mind because we were happy looking at the sea and enjoying the breeze . The fish was succulent , the fries were soft and not crispy , the fattoush along with it was ok . overall i was happy with what i got . the biryanis were standard stuff , didn't stand out .
my overall impression of the restro is that the food is average . one really goes there to enjoy the unhindered views of the sea and enjoy beer watching the sky changing color and the sun set . the food is just average , the prices are pretty surprising . For its location , a restro can easily charge a bomb and get away with serving lousy food . Service could have better , it was evident that they were shot staffed as most people were getting impatient waiting for the staff to find them and take the orders . i would have given it 3* had it not been for the views ; 1/2* for that . i am planning to visit again and enjoy chilled beers sitting outside by the beach next time .
Tip - mashreq cards got us a 10% discount .

Umm Al Quwain Beach Restaurant

Reviewed By faditech - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Whatever you ask for is excellent.
True Lebanese test ! Homos, mutabbal, tabouli ... grilled meats (Except Tawook)
All great - Great Value for Money.
The most amazing is the variety and richness of the free desserts and fruits you get.
Attached is the pic of the complementary fruit basket & cute Halawa packs.
I loved that after lunch.
Hospitality, welcome, service ... all is great.
Portions are more than enough !!! you will never be able to eat all - they are so generous.
I am a regular customer there.
Prices are amazing!
Example: 2 Mixed Grills + Hommos + Mutabal + Fattouch + Cheese Rolls + Fried kebbeh + 2 Beers + Soft Drink + Couple of things more + Vegetable Basket ...
All for AED 120 (US$ 32) ... almost $16 per person
You sit by the window and the sea by your side while listening to Fairouz - WOW WOW WOW
Oh yes, tip to Lebanese: they got ALMAZA Beer ;)

Arab Sea Restaurant

Reviewed By Nicole B - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Stopped in for lunch after balking at our original choice. Boy we were glad we did! Excellent service, food was great, all inexpensive. Standards done well, with a nice bit of kick (dahl, rogan josh, paneer masala). But the grilled fish marinated in saffron was the best. The prawns were delectable and the squid some of the softest and best cooked I've ever had. Private booths with curtains and a buzzer whenever you need anybody.

Only negative was the poor service, had to ask for service numerous times, really good selection of the food menu and drinks ...stones throw from the Barracuda beach resorr and the barracuda bottle shop. Portions are huge, pizza wheel and meatballs are very flavoursome. Would...MoreThanks a million Joannamje for your review! Your compliments on our food made us happy and we will definitely push on the service especially during ultra busy days such as weekends. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon.
