I had dinner with friends at The Garden Grille restaurant in Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Mall of the Emirates. This restaurant offers an international menu with pasta, Arabic & Indian specialties, salads, seafood, etc. They also serve spirits like sparkling wine, champagne, cocktails, red, white and rose wines, and liquor.
Head Chef Gautam Sethi welcomed us and recommended the specialties of the restaurant which surely did not disappoint.
Note: Be advised that the restaurant is located outside the Mall of the Emirates, not in the mall.

Garden Grille Restaurant at Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Mall of the Emirates
We arrived at the restaurant which is just at the lobby of the hotel. It is very modern and spacious with high ceilings. The set-up is a garden theme with earthy colors of wood and green. The colors make it a pleasing sight to the eyes.
I didn’t expect the restaurant to be well-lit because I saw some photos online and the place looked a bit dim, but I was wrong.
