Default Recommendations for Friday brunch?

We've been to most of the places on Fridays, but never taken much notice of how they cater for young children.

Now we have friends visiting with a 2 and 3 year old, we're looking for somewhere to take them. Does anyone have any recommendations?

My suggestion of Double Decker was frowned upon for some reason !!!

Well, I have about 2.5 hours in Dubai only, so I suppose I will only get chance to eat at the airport, maybe not even get chance for that.

So, on our massive shopping trips with Malt & co, you can point us to the best places to go.
And we want ALL of the shopping malls pleeeeeeeese

Best thing is check out Time Out their listings are usually ok. Depends on whether you want drinks included, if not and its mainly about entertaining the kids then Nad al Sheba is ok, kids food, bouncy castle, face painting - bit hectic for the parents - hey ho can't have it every way, but the roast pork and crackling is fab
