The overbearing smell of cigarette smoke put me of the first time I visited but I returned as I did not want to eat in my room once more and decided to give it a try. The rib sliders where superb with great service and generous gin and tonic. Needs a smoke free area to enjoy the food and a... More

Went for drinks/dinner after arriving from the hotel and the staff was very friendly and food was great. I told the staff that it was my first time in Dubai and they went out of their way to give me a list of places to go, sights to see, and things to avoid, especially the bartender Carlo. Throughout the week... More

We went for drinks after dinner at Scotts on a Thursday evening and found it very busy and the many of the clientele that were there were sleezy. Women at the bar and dotted around looked like they were picking up men and some of the men too were very sleezy. Service was terrible so slow we had to go... More

A couple of collegues and I came to Shanghai30 and at first we wanted turn around and leave, because it looked a bit lame, but the manager on duty (Estiaan) convinced us to come in and at least have one drink, and we actually had a good time! The staff was very friendly and assertive and we will definatey return!

I have had dinner at this restaurant on several occasions. The atmosphere and wait staff are all great - but I never particularly thought the quality of the meals was very high.

Stayed in the hotel so decided to eat here for a quick late night snack. Chicken fried rice & mozzarella sticks were as good as we've tasted & very reasonably priced for a Dubai hotel. Marriott loyalty discount applied which was great. Uncomfortable chairs but very nice service.

Wasn't overly impressed. Had drinks there in the evening on a few of the nights. Incredibly smoky inside as they don't seem to ventilate at all. I would go back to my room smelling like smoke. Also, drinks were overpriced - particularly for draught beer. Service was impassive at best.
