The Saturday roast at Nezesaussi Grill.

DUBAI – “Wait, has the Dubai World Cup been moved here?” I asked my dining companion on our first visit to Nezesaussi Grill at Manzil Downtown Dubai.
At the bar was a smartly dressed crowd, including ladies in elaborate hats. It looked like they were happy to be holed in there until the rain stopped and they could all head out to the Meydan racecourse. At a corner table, a man was looking on as his two children happily ate spaghetti.
I normally avoid sports bars mostly because the crowd tends to get rowdier during the night. But Nezesaussi Grill packed a big surprise, particularly with its unpretentious, fluid and family friendly ambiance. Even the staff members were nice and welcoming.
If not for the sports memorabilia and the large TV screens showing sports events, I’d forget I was in a sports bar. I wonder if they’d be screening Manny Pacquiao’s next fight?
My dining companion and I tried the Saturday roast, which came with three house beverages and any cut of meat with roast potatoes, grilled vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy for Dh179. This one was a real treat to the wallet and tummy. Not only were the serving portions generous, but the steak that I ordered was juicy and just the right medium done that I wanted.
The items on the regular menu are really affordable, and by the looks of what servers were dishing out—delicious. This is probably the reason why Nezesaussi will continue to attract guests without any pretense.
Verdict: Good bar food, family friendly place and very affordable food.
