10:01 AM July 20, 2013
A very down to earth, no-frills review of restaurants in the UAE. All the while written in perfectly understandable language without a lot of the foodie jargon the others use. Website design is simple and easy to navigate, and has had me searching for Geordie Armani + 'Restaurant name' almost every time I want to try out a new place. Plus connections to Facebook pages and Twitter account makes sure we're always updated; a lot of dedication put in there!

A great blog and made my move to the Middle East so much easier!
