One of the best recommended is the former Al Dhiyafah Road, now called 2nd of December with its location ideally off Jumeira Road in Satwa. This road is dedicate to local residents and tourists who look for good food but cheap cuisine. Locals and tourists will find eateries spilling out all along the road and even onto the pavement extending outside of the restaurants. Here you find cuisines from India, Iran, and Lebanon, Chinese and even Arabian food too.
In Oud Metha is the Fish Basket with outstanding yet cheap Lebanese seafood. Even though you might not appreciate the décor and ambience you will definitely be able to look past it once you receive a generous portion of excellent seafood like shrimp, hammour and squid especially.
Inside the Mussalla Tower Mall in Bur Dubai you get the Curry Leaf that opens each morning at eight am until 11.30 pm. Here you have a range of cuisines to pick from including delicious deserts and puddings.
