Samurai Sushi and Grill – Dubai

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for Samurai Sushi – this was a mediocre restaurant for me to get a quick sushi fix. The flavours and type of food here was inspired by Japanese dishes but I found that it was not authentic. The seasoning and sauces were no where near to what you would see…

Mahec – Dubai

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for Mahec – fine dining Indian cuisine is always something I like to experience as I do find the Indian flavours too much for my palate but when I dine in at these places, I appreciate it much more as it is more refined and toned down for locals…

Spicy & Ginger – Dubai

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for Spicy & Ginger – I have always been a huge fan of Thai food, only because my mom made me these popular dishes growing up as most of the flavours are similar to those in Cambodian food. The dishes served here were made by a Thai chef so…
