We had not been very sure where to go for dinner last night while hanging out at The Beach. We walked around a bit and in the end agreed on Big Chefs. I had seen it previously but we somehow never made it. As it was too hot outside still we decided to sit inside, and man, what an ambiance. I loved the book shelve sort of storage and the stone brick walls which had been even more highlighted with the stairway to the upper floor. Overall the whole ambiance is stylish and makes you feel very comfortable.
Big Chefs serves a mix of Italian and Continental food with a nice selection of starters and mains. We went for a Big Big Burger, a Margherita Pizza and the Chicken Schnitzel with Potato Salad. The Big Big Burger is indeed big and comes with one of the best french fries I had so far in Dubai. The Burger itself was well done and and the bun was not too soft, just perfect. The Margherita Pizza is huge, it is not very thick, but very very tasty. The same can be said about the Chicken Schnitzel which we choose to order with Potato Salad. The Schnitzel was very good and the Potato Salad quite good as well, but for me it is not up to par with the one of Doner & Gyros.
After all Big Chefs is a great place to lean back, relax and be only busy with the difficult decision what dish of their very interesting menu to pick. I found easily loads of things I wanted to try and order. But the portions are too big to just do so, unless you plan take away.
For us Big Chefs is surely a place to visit again. Value for money wise we had spend for 3 dishes plus drinks just below 200AED which is absolutely OK and in range with other Restaurants around.
