Time Out Says

There are two things about BOA Steakhouse that you need to know. The first is that the setting, overlooking the Eastern Mangroves, is superb, especially if you’re sitting outside. The second is that the kitchen really knows how to cook a steak.

If there are downsides to the experience here, it’s that the slick dining room, which once was the pinnacle of coolness, can feel a little, well, cold if not busy, and the service can be somewhat stiff and responsive rather than proactive.
We’re sitting inside on a lunchtime, pleased to see a good-value business lunch available through the week. For Dhs115 you’ll get three courses, including a steak main.

Of the starters, a mozzarella and rocket salad would work better for us if the delightful creamy cheese wasn’t cut into such small chunks. The dressing is delicious, however, and the portion is generous.

We absolutely love the Australian Angus rib-eye, which is cooked perfectly to medium rare. It’s full of flavour. The mash that goes with it is the stuff of dreams, too.

We can live with slightly forced service when the food is this good and at these prices.

The bottom line

The superb steaks stand out above all else.
