September 2014, Dinner
On our first night at the Holiday Inn Bur Dubai – Embassy District – we went out to explore our surroundings and had dinner at Pizza Hut Bur Dubai, just opposite Bur Juman Shopping Mall.
It was already busy when we arrived, but a space was found for us quickly. There were lots of families. Take away was also doing a brisk business.
We ordered two orange juice, two pieces of fire cracker chicken rolls, a foot long chicken lasagne and one medium Chicken Lover pizza. All was delicious.
Even though, the staff was extremely busy, our food arrived relatively quick and the order was correct.
The waiters were friendly too.
We enjoyed our meal, but thought the noise volume was quite high, so it’s nothing for you if you are looking for a quiet time.
We paid 83 AED (ca. 17.65 Euro or ca. 22.60 USD).
We would return again since we like Pizza Hut and have tried different ones around the world.
Would we recommend this restaurant to a friend? YES!
Would we visit again this restaurant in the future? YES!24th October 2014 at 11:37 #483617
We wanted pizza and yes, we wanted it affordable, plus the Pizza Hut was nearby our hotel. It was pretty good, beautiful lasagne, very light, tasty and not heavy at all, the pizza was fresh, light and italian in style, service was quick and friendly, the Pizza Hut was packed with local families and expats / tourists alike. We love it and wouldn’t hesitate to go back for another dinner there, when in Dubai. Thanks.24th October 2014 at 13:34 #483618
uggyboylovestravel – you go to Dubai and end up in Pizza Hut !!
Surely there was somewhere more “Dubaiish” to go than Pizza Hut!!!

Martyn, while Pizz Hut may not be the only choice, with the exception of a (very) few Arabian specialist restaurants, I would say that 90% of what you get in Dubai you could get almost anywhere in the world – virtually every global cuisine and often in branded form. Certainly not a gourmand’s paradise24th October 2014 at 14:26 #483620
@martynsinclair, Pizza Hut was a good choice, good experiences and good quality, plus we wanted a good pizza and Pizza Hut provided this for us, the outlet was packed with locals and expats, I guess that’s a good sign. It hid the spot. Cheers. Regarding the other post below my original review, this was as written as clarification and was added by myself, no post were deleted here. Thanks.
@TominScotland, yes, every cuisine imaginable is available in Dubai and in our case Pizza Hut hit the spot, good quality, lots of people in the outlet, fast service, fresh food. Very nice. We’ve eaten almost always top notch in Dubai, be it, affordable or in the “we treat ourselves” brackets. Dubai is now famous for offering foods from value to 3 Michelin Star celebrity chefs. Cheers.24th October 2014 at 14:52 #483621
same same in BKK. Closest food outlet to the Westin is McDonalds… but you can easily find non “Western style” restaurants..
I think its pretty sad if you travel so far and end up in a Pizza Hut!! (but that’s just my opinion)
Still love your review uggyboylovestravel24th October 2014 at 14:52 #483622
First time I ever spent £100 per head on a curry was in Dubai.
It was in Indego in the Grosvenor House. I have to say it was worth every penny!!24th October 2014 at 15:14 #483623
@ MartynSinclair, glad you like the review. BTW. Pizza Hut was one of many diverse outlets we’ve visited during our recent visit to Dubai. Cheers.
@esselle, good to hear that you enjoyed your curry at Indego, but I wouldn’t want to spent £100 on one meal per person. Nevertheless, glad that it’s worth every penny. Cheers.24th October 2014 at 15:34 #483624
I suggest we start reviewing 7-11s and petrol stations, too.

By the sounds of it a 7-11 will have more to offer than BA’s club kitchen!24th October 2014 at 17:15 #483626
Vineet Bhatia, the proprietor of Indego, was a member of the BA culinary council for many years. Maybe he could knock up a couple of recipes for the Club kitchen………….24th October 2014 at 17:50 #483627
Quite amazing how so many posts here encourage a BA bash. Quite tiresome really!!24th October 2014 at 17:59 #483628
Where do you see a BA bash here?25th October 2014 at 02:06 #483629
LOL Martyn…..what about a review of pizza’s purchased from 7-11’s or petrol stations.
When I lived in Dubai….indeed indulged in some fine dining – most in excess 100gbp pp (including I Indego – imho excellent value for money) in fact I can’t think of a ‘top notch’ restaurant charging anything less. For a treat we would order Pizza Hut (it’s right up there with Mcdonalds/KFC/Whitehouse and shopping at Lidl) – to enhance the experience -they would deliver to my villa.
Would I get them to deliver pizza again : Yes
Would I have Pizza Hut on vacation : No (I can live with feeling cheated)
