I was invited here for a business lunch. My host chose the food and I have to say that everything that I sampled (and there was a lot) was fresh and tasted great. A special mention on the food front must go to the fish which I was told was called 'Supreme'. So meaty and tasty. As we Poles say,... More

The Food is amazing, fresh and tasty. However, the recent hike in prices was "uncalled for". It was already priced at the very end of mid-range prices and now it's almost the same as going to a luxury restaurant or a hotel.

If you want quality local fish, then this is the best. One of the oldest if not the oldest in the uae. They offer a huge variety of fish and seafood dishes and Arabic foods. No alcohol though but is ok. I personally mostly order take out and enjoy at home.

This is a very good restaurant to have diner in Dubai. They serve very good sea-food in a location resembling a boat. It is better to take the recommendation of the chef and enjoy.

Have been there countless times, almost every weekend. Never failed to impress. Service is excellent. Food is extremely delicious. Menu options are great and wide variety offered. Different level of spices can be selected on each dish. Staff are super friendly. There is plenty of parking outside. The restaurant is in an excellent neighborhood.

Service was good; nothing exceptional. Did not enjoy the food; seafood salad well needed more salad; portion and seafood too little; sea food not the best I tasted; even had the starchy crab one buys in a supermarket. Grilled jumbo shrimps; too dry. Hammor fish; oven grilled; was ok but with too much water in the dish; not fresh? Defrosted?... More

Upon first glance, you may think Bu Tafish looks like a cheesy American diner with a nautical theme, but the food is excellent. The starters of hummus, tahini, pita bread, fresh vegetables, and olives are delicious and refreshing. We ordered the Bu Tash soup, grilled prawns with Arabic spices, and grilled Hampour fish with Arabic spices. The fish and prawns... More
