Located at Aloft City Centre Deira, The Canteen is an all-day, casual dining restaurant overlooking the historic Dubai Creek. Here, you can grab a quick bite anytime of the day, or enjoy a delicious, healthy, and sumptuous meal at the outdoor terrace.

We visited this restaurant during a Tuesday theme night with Arabic food as it’s theme. However, you may also check out a selection of items from their a la carte menu during the day.

For starters, you can try the “Salad Bowls,” which include Chicken Kale, Green Papaya & Shrimp, or their signature: The Canteen Salad. Also, don’t forget to sample their “Sharing Spread Bowls” of Hummus, Roasted Beetroot, or Tomato Tartar served with sides of bread.

As for the “Main Bowls,” The Canteen offers a variety of international dishes: Beef Bibimbap, Beef Dan Dan Noodles, Chicken Biryani, Chicken Katsudon, Dawood Basha, Sea Bream, Seafood Green Thai Curry, and Shish Tawook Tandoori. It all sounds really good!

If you’re vegetarian, no worries because they serve “Vegetarian Bowls,” namely Paneer Tikka Masala and Porcini Mushroom Ravioli. And for dessert, the “Sweet Bowls” include Lazy Chocolate Cake, Lemon & Coconut Cheesecake, Katmer, and Tropical Fruit Salad.
