Default Vu, Emirates Towers...

Been reading a few sites' reviews of this place and it seems to be hit and miss...

Never sure whether the bad reviews are from customers and the good ones from management/staff of the place, so...

Your thoughts, oh learned bored, on said establishment....

I would go somewhere else.. I've only been to Neos for some drinks, its nice, no idea about the food though (Do they have any? Didn't see, was late anyway).

I'm used to dine out in (and work in) Michelin starred restaurants in Europe, and for the right restaurant prepared to travel (once drove to the Elzas in France just to have lunch at a 3 starred restaurant: L'Arnsbourg). But I didn't find anything remotely comparable to it in Dubai, most of the time the food is good, sometimes great I dare to say, but almost always the service is really bad. Getting tired of the Philippino/Indian staff.

Not being racist or something, but a lot of restaurants here think serving people is like teaching a monkey a trick, while it is so much more than that! Exceptions to the rule which I found so far are Zuma and Lemongrass.

they serve food at Neos but it's more like bite size type stuff, not real dinner...
Zuma is nice...Lemongrass I go to a lot, but that is a completely different type of place altogether...
