Sadly the food was all overcooked, was hit with way too much seasoning and flavour. The menu doesn't always state if food is spicy and the sides options are all green vegetables, not very good for mixing together with main courses.
The restaurant was so unbearably hot and the automatic doors to the outside area do not work at this time of year - it was uncomfortable.
Someone in the restaurant must have had fish and the smell was overpowering and unpleasant.

Beautifully presented and tasting food. Tried the Grandma-tini cocktail which was delicious from a large varied selection in cocktails menu.
Quite expensive when compared to Michelin star restaurants in UK -?but very much in keeping with UAE prices - will definitely return.

Food is delicious, has to be said the service quality has decreased significantly since firebird. Food took forever, staff werent very catering with refills checking up etc. Which you would expect for the price paid. Very good for bar bites not as good for a formal dinner

for a business lunch, service was slow and took approx. 1 hr and a half. We needed to constantly call out that we were ready for the main or desert or bill. We were also entitled to a coffee as part of the business lunch, but the waiter did not mention this once and allowed us to leave without recommending a coffee.

Went for a business lunch for two - two courses with coffees and some mineral water - no alcohol.

Ambiance good, and the staff were also pretty good - that part of DIFC is very quiet and as it wasn't too warm, we sat outside.

Starters were both excellent - I had the eggplant crisp and my colleague had the charred octopus.

For the mains, we both had the squid ink tagliatelle - it was pretty tasteless and had rather "set", i.e. it was prepared too early and had sat around. It was cold and lumpy. The prawns that came with it were cold (would've been better hot) but very nice.

When asked, we mentioned that the mains were, to be frank, disappointing. The manager was apologetic, tried to excuse the problem on the grounds that it was "fresh pasta" (I'm sorry? Why should that be an issue?), said that they'd inform the chef, and did nothing more. This was not a cheap 2-course lunch.

The competition in DIFC for business lunches is fierce - Zumas is consistently excellent - Mina are going to have to do a lot better.

This is one of the best culinary experiences I've had. The soup is amazing, the staff attentive and knowledgeable, and the food devine. It was perfect for our romantic evening and I would highly recommend to anyone with a good palate looking for a great place to have conversation with company. Thank you!
