This would be Guy Fieri’s first stand alone restaurant in Dubai. If you’ve been visiting Reel Cinemas then you should already be familiar with Guy Fieri by now. He’s all over the place at Reel Cinemas Dubai Mall and Jebel Ali Recreation Club. Movies today at Reel Cinemas start after showcasing some of Guy Fieri’s mouth watering dishes. Basically Guy Fieri’s Kitchen restaurant has collaborated with Reel Cinemas to serve Cinema viewers a gourmet experience of the traditional American food with their signature Trash Can Nachos, Chicken wings, smoked brisket, Burgers, sandwiches and much more.
Guy Fieri’s Kitchen restaurant is actually hidden on the first floor of Reel Cinemas, Dubai Mall. Very much close to the theatres. The interior is typical American. Televisions inside can been seen playing Guy Fieri’s famous TV shows.
Ordering a milk shake is as good as ordering a dessert, especially the Nutella chocolate cake as they top their milk shakes with a piece of dessert. The milk shakes definitely look attractive but they could taste better and the same is the case with their mocktails. The drinks and the desserts are the two areas I thought they should improve.
The Trash Can Nachos is one item that you don’t want to miss ordering from their menu. One of the best experience you are going to have with Nachos. All that cheese and beef on that Nachos is going to mesmerize your taste buds. Perfect for a movie!
The chicken wings were really good. The chicken wings at Guy Fieri is available in 3 different sauces(brown sugar bbq, buffalo and siracha). We tried the buffalo and it was outstanding. Loved licking every bit of this chicken wing. The buffalo sauce was really good on it. Dragons breath chili is supposed to be an American favourite. It wasn’ t as spicy as you’d expect from it’s name. I felt it was a bit overloaded with red kidney beans.
If you are ordering the burger I highly recommend to start by trying their beef burgers first. They make beef very well at Guy Fieri’s kitchen and they taste great. I was surprised to see the chicken sandwich come like a burger. The brioche bun that came along Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken sandwich was soft and buttery. The fries that came along these burgers were commendable. Infact you get 3 kinds of potato fries and they were really crisp and delightful to eat them. It’s that moment when you really don’t care much about calorie and oil fat, as you are enjoying every bite of it.
We also tried the best of the beef from their menu. I can tell you one thing for sure, you are going to appreciate the BBQ brisket. You can truly tell it’s been slow cooked for 18 hours. Super tender and juicy. The steak was not bad either but for the price I’d say I’ve eaten better ones. I suggest to try the brisket first, if you were to make a choice between the brisket and steak.
We tried their well advertised cheese cake. It’s actually half a cake but this cheese cake hasn’t reached my expectations. Dubai is a real paradise for desserts and I think Guy Fieri’s Kitchen need to step up their level if they want to be competitive in the dessert category. For me the best part at Guy Fieri kitchen has been their appetizers and mains. Perfect companions for a movie. Click below to see the pictures in full screen size:
