The Urban Brunch at UBK JLT
Movenpick Hotel, Jumeirah Lakes Tower
Upon walking into the UBK Restaurant, we were immediately drawn to the spacious courtyard area. Boasting a live BBQ station, dartboard, big screens and even Foosball tables we knew we would be making an afternoon of it.

The Food, Drinks & Atmosphere
The friendly and welcoming staff soon escorted us to our table and presented us with the menu for the day ahead. A simple, easy to navigate selection of ‘Nibbles’, ‘Wow Tasty Food’ and ‘Tooth Glue’ teased our palates and hungry bellies. We most definitely found something on the sharing concept menu that we relentlessly ordered over and over. The food was unlimited and served straight to our table. We even got to select cuts from the BBQ station with the chef. The dishes we recommend are the Fish Tacos, Jerk Chicken (these have a kick to them!) and Fish Tikka from the BBQ. The sharing dessert platter is worth leaving some space for.We especially enjoyed the highly indulgent Chocolate Mousse.
The selection of drinks available went hand in hand with the straightforward menu. House grape, a selection of spirits and buckets of beer were all readily available throughout the afternoon. There was very little to complain about the staff’s attentiveness and or the quality of beverages offered. It was almost easy to look past the somewhat limited beverage list as our glasses were never empty and the buckets were continuously topped up!
After feasting on the sumptuous bites, sit back and enjoy listening to Peter, the resident musician who played throughout the day. He created a great vibe among the diners and happily granted song requests.
The Urban Brunch at UBK JLT – Verdict Summary
All in all, UBK have put together a pleasant way to spend our Friday afternoon. It did exactly what it says on the tin.

A brunch that will surely appeal to the late risers!
