Well I think the Yas Island hotels are great, especially later tonight when the Miss World contestants turn up.

AD has nothing that can compete with the Burj al Arab, the Burj Dubai, the Madinat, Al Qasr and the Jumeirah waterfront.

But at least you have all those awful faux English pubs in second rate hotels full of sleazy oil drillers who haven't had a free shag in over a year...
Just FYI Burj Alarab is owned by Abu Dhabi, Metro owned by Abu Dhabi the Burj owned by Abu Dhabi, Al Qasr a gift from Sheik Zayed. Jumeirah Beach the Burj Al Arab and Madinat Jumairah owned by Abu Dhabi...
Oh hold on whats owned by Dubai? Diera and...................... oh the other shitty places...
Dubai is nothing. Just a fake place for fake people.
Get your facts right before gobbing...

Sounds more of the usual urban legends. Dubai Holdings owns the Jumeirah Group but I guess you'll say that's "owned" by Abu Dhabi in the same way that England "owns" Scotland, Ireland and Wales and the British Commonwealth "owns" Australia etc.

Feeling a bit sensitive sweetie?

What has that got to do with which city is better than the other? Just because AD funded these projects doesn't lessen the fact that Dubai is still the preferred tourist destination and generally a much nicer place to live for some people.

The fact is that this thread was designed to start a debate, so everybody is going to have a different opinion - there's no need to be a complete cock. It seems to me that everyone's "facts" are somewhat coloured by the news they're fed in their respective locations. (See Roadking's last post).

Default Re: Yas Island Bars and Restaurants

I thought the point of this thread was to discuss Yas restaurants and bars and not whether Dubai was better than Abu Dhabi vice versa! Can we get off that stupid argument? For those that have been please provide your reviews including place and price That would be much appreciated. This was in the National yesterday:
