Downtown Cafe; AL Karama


 

The other day we headed to this cafe in Karama to have some light lunch and head out for the day. Little did I know that they have their franchise in India as well. Relatively newly opened, I was super excited to visit this place for two reasons; their ratings on Zomato and they way this cafe was being talked about on Instagram.

Ambiance: This cafe has indoor and outdoor seatings and I must say I was absolutely in love with the indoor decor. It was chic and spacious, well lit and not cluttered at all. The outside seating space was quite ample as well. The ambiance in the evening is relatively better with the beautiful lighting and all of that good stuff.

Service: I don’t know why the food took so long to come at our table. I ordered for some Chicken Salad and it actually took good 15 to 20 mins to arrive at my table. I was completely irritated and famished by that point. The service was a drag.

Price: The prices in relations to the quantity of the food or even the quality is quite so – so. 

What we ate;

DT Grilled Chicken [24AED]: (mind you I am normally not this impatient or irritated, its just that I was FAMISHED!!!) So I ordered for this salad and specifically told them that I did not want any kind of dressing on my salad – nothing – just throw the veggies and chicken together. That’s all! I might have repeated myself 4 to 5 times to the point where the server might have thought I have some kind of problem 😛 Lo and behold, the salad came 15 to 20 minutes late with olive oil dressing on it. They were kind enough to quickly replace my salad with zero dressing and some Caesar salad dressing on the side.

Strawberry Mojito: This was quite refreshing to drink and thankfully was not loaded with sugar syrups like other places I have been to. You need to try their mojitos and milkshakes.

My friends also tried some beef burgers and they said it failed to impress them and tasted quite average. Nothing that they would come back here for.

Final Thoughts: I would want to give this place another try soon. I want to try their pasta and their monster shake. Will update my review then. For now, I was very unimpressed and they unfortunately did not leave a mark on me.
