I love this place. I need me some dynamite shrimps :D Also, I love their Mongolian beef. Try their crispy green beans it comes with the dynamite sauce for a vegetarian option. Portions are good enough for 2 and the prices are average. It has recently opened in WTC Abu Dhabi which means I do not have to go all the way to Dubai because I crave dynamite shrimps :D
The burgers are good but kind of greasy and I will definitely go home and fix something else to eat because the burgers are just so small. I would go for the shroom and meat burger. Well, I attempted their burgers at home (because I am amazing like that) and it tasted so much better homemade :D
PS the secret is in the bun :P
OH MY OH MY!
MEAT MEAT MEAT!
So basically you have a salad and dessert buffet and you get a card with green on one side and red on the other. Green for Go and Red for I can't breathe. If you love meat, what are you doing still reading the reviews FOR THE LOVE OF MEAT get a phone make a reservation now, SERIOUSLY NOW!
Oh and don't forget to order a Brazilian drink (not sure what it's called) but just ask the waiter for their signature drink (Non-alcoholic).
I go there for the healthy breakfast. I always get egg whites omelette with extra asparagus no potato and the meal comes with orange juice, fruit salad, yogurt, whole wheat toast, and your choice of either tea or coffee. I have yet to try their desserts.
I have never hated anything as much as I hate this place. Poor service and very very rude staff. We asked for a table for 7 and they pointed at one so we move towards it and we are almost all seated when the manager comes over to tell us because another group happen to want the same table (They walked in after us). Now, normally I would have a word with the manager and walk out because this is unacceptable in my book. But, my husband did not want to make a scene and he so nicely told the manager that there was no problem and got us moved to another table. Needless to say, the food was horrible and there was a dirty cat walking in between and under tables which when we asked to be removed, the waiter explained that it was a staff member and they can't anything to make our dining comfortable. So my sister had to leave because she is scared of cats.
Going back to the food, we ordered fattoush, humus, vine leaves and they were below average. We also ordered different kinds of kaftas and they were dry and weren't pleasant at all.
I have been to Blue Fig twice. The first time was for breakfast on a Friday which was a No No for me because service is always bad when it is overcrowded, so it ended with a bad impression. This year, I gave it another go for lunch on a weekday and I loved it. I would go back just for the salads, we ordered the Bed of Roses and the Jarash Arena salad and both were exceptional. The chicken pesto sandwich and fajita pizza were good but not great.
I like my meat medium so I ordered my Angus burger Medium and I got it medium well but it was still good and moist. I also got the spinach drink (I don't remember the name) and it was amazing; however, I asked for another and it tasted nothing like my first. That was very disappointing but overall it was good and every time I visit Jordan, I'll pass by for sure.
I would have given this place a no star if this was possible. So we (a group of 7 persons) go in for lunch at 3 p.m., they great us at the door saying that the tables are reserved from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. so they can't give us a table and we look inside and the place is empty! Not only that but the manager jumps in to save the day by saying that he'll give us a table only if we do not stay for long! ARE THEY FOR REAL! I can't believe how ridiculously bad their service is.
Love their onion rings and the chicken quesadillas is very yummy. I gave it 3 stars because they do not have a non smoking area, their indoor seating is wide open to their smoking area and that is a big deal for me.
