Default Care Service Abu Dhabi

Hello fellow sand loving Brit Expats,
Any recommendations for a reliable garage for servicing my car please? Its for my Honda Accord Coupe which is more than 5 years old and outside of warranty.
I do like the official Al Futtaim Honda Service place but the car has been super reliable and no signs of any issues, which makes me feel that if I can find a decent independent alternative it would be fine. I'm not looking for the cheapest price just something decent and reliable.
I'm based in Abu Dhabi so ideally would like a garage here, although if you know decent places in Dubai I would also consider that.
Any recommendations would be appreciated? Cheers!

I always just use al Futtaim - it's pretty cheap for a standard service.

Always used Mike the Mechanic just off Electra Street.

Mike Maksoudian (sp) - Armenian/Lebanese guy who could do anything - he did an a/c system transplant on my old Peugeot 306 - stuck one from an old Nissan (much better) in for about £150

This was about 15 years ago mind. I think he was forced to move his workshop to a dedicated area

Thanks CSDF and Flares. I ended up going with the official AlFuttaim Honda place on this occasion (AED 1900 for a major service + 400 for changing the transmission oil).

I was tempted by ServiceMyCar because they pick the car up from your home but their cost for a service was so cheap i couldn't believe that they would actually check anything properly anyways.

I'm far from a car expert but capable of checking the oil and cooling fluid levels and generally looking out for signs of issues, so will probably save time and money by doing the oil changes at ADNOC for the minor service intervals and just going to the dealer for the major services every 20k.

To be honest i kind of appreciated Flares' comment. at this time of year as its starts to turn ridiculously hot the idea of massively oversizing my car AC system with parts from a bigger beast is quite appealing.
​​​​​​​Anyways as i screwed up the title of the thread im open to a little ridicule.
