Default The Best Home Delivery In Dubai

So people - we all love food and sitting on the sofa...

Curious as to your favourites... (especially in the Marina as I'm moving there next week...)

So, as a reference source, what and where are your favs:-

To start, Oud Metha:-

Al Safadi - Brilliant Lebanese
Lemongrass - Excellent Thai
Roundtable - decent but not great pizza

That's it, not many options in Oud Metha... so....

Where's Al Safadi?

I like Maharbani (Arabic / Emirati - Qabsa, Mandi etc) and Tehran (Iranian - duh), both in Um Suqeim on the Beach Road. Probably not quite close enough to the Marina to deliver there.

I've been to all the Al Safadis............. the one just down the SZR from the Dusit is the best.

Zyng is one of the more decent chineses around (Ibn B) and sends a couple of drinks for free.

Gourmet Burger Kitchen (Marina Mall) is by far the best burger place around and the food is great, with the best chips in Dubai (to date)

Bazerkan (sp?) (JBR) does sound lebanese food

Napoletana (JBR) does decent pizzas

Gazebo in Media City does fantastic Indian. Some of the best in Dubai. Excellently priced too. Can get two curries, dal, nan and rice for 100 AED. Don't ever go for Rupee room.

We went to the Rupee Room on Marina Walk a few months ago and had a great eat-as-much-as-you-like buffet for Dhs59 and had no issues. Sad that the Blue Restaurant appears to have shut down.

I miss Al Safadi. There was a branch over the road from our old place.

Best home delivery - Brick Lane. No question. Brits answer the phone so no ordering complications, they'll chop and change the menu and deliver when they say.
