Also rated as good value was Basta Art Cafe in Bur Dubai, which charged AED106 for the lunch package and sold three items at a lower price than any of its counterparts.

This is CHEAP? Really?

Wow, you people live in Utopia, not Dubai.

WOW! I like what you classify as "cheap"! For the blue-collared guys who live in cramped dorms in Sonapur and Al Qouz, AED 96 could feed them for a whole month!

And even for the average Jones, a simple lunch would cost not more than AED 20-30 inclusive of a sandwich and beverage from a decent place.

AB.. get real.. until your articles are targeted to the high-end of the pyramid, for whom this would 'dirt-cheap' and they wouldn't even care to go there.. cos they can't be seen at such 'cheap' places.
