Appetti suggests 5 places to eat at the Times Square Center Mall Dubai

Appetti’s choice of 5 Times Square Center Restaurants

In comparison to the other Dubai malls we’ve written about, the Times Square Center Mall is actually quite small. It accommodates about 40 stores but some big international brands show up in the directory, such as Toys R Us, Mobilia and others. Most of the food venues are cafes or fast food vendors but there are also a few restaurants where you can have a good meal from various international cuisines. So we’ve picked a mixture of quick bite spots and full-on restaurants to give you enough options when you want to dine in Times Square Center restaurants.

  1. Chillout Ice Lounge
  2. Attibassi Cafe
  3. Barry’s Bench
  4. Cultures
  5. Biella


Chillout Ice Lounge

What if you could enjoy a glass of a great drink in an ice cave in the middle of the desert? That’s very much a reality in Times Square Center. The Chillout Ice Lounge looks like the ice castle of Elsa, the princess from the popular Disney movie Frozen. It is a very unusual venue, to say the least. In terms of food and drinks you can enjoy hot soups and a mug of coffee, tea or other warming beverages. Sandwiches and desserts are also on the menu.

Times Square Center is home to another one of the Jackberrys Group restaurants. Cultures is very different from Barry’s Bench as it serves mainly Japanese cuisine but it also has other international food options. It’s a self-service restaurant with an open kitchen which makes the experience more exciting and interesting. Healthy drinks are also available on the menu and perfectly complement the carefully crafted food.
