Pan-Asian
Launched as an idiosyncratic dining concept that allows for dining outdoors, regardless of season, The Pods offers a truly social yet private culinary experience in the heart of new Dubai at Bluewaters.
Upon entry, visitors immediately set sights on the sleek dining pods on the terrace that offer a chilled, private environment to indulge in The Pod's finest Pan-Asian classics. Air-conditioned with lush decor, a large central table, and a rounded plush sofa to sink into, The Pods are a distinctly unique introduction to the dining landscape that isn’t found elsewhere in the city.

Stepping indoors, guests are transported to the viridescent jungles of Asia with a canopy of abundant greenery suspended above the ample seating that circles round tables and the spacious, luminous bar. While the striking accented interiors surely demand attention, the menu is equally exceptional.

    Birthday dinner and the service was slow and erratic. Meal courses were served when each dish was ready and not as a complete course serving

    I thought it will be in better quality Its nice for sure but I thought it will be more than what I accept Windows not clean so giving not nice view The lights inside the pod is too much light so any one will set inside will close it for sure cuz it’s too lightning and when u close it is little bit dark , even there’s adjustable switches but if it’s works as is it it will be perfect so the customer will reduce it or the opposite Plus the food it’s too expensive really like make it normal prices even the same food i ate it i can eat it in another place for half price so like many people wonna book and come but when they check the menu sure they will not even me i wonna come back to it but I’m not because of the pricecs The good things that is the fastest place they bring the order so it’s very good things Plus the guys who works there they keep standing coming going near to pods like some people they wont to feel free or some people they don’t like that ,so just when someone ring the bill they can come and ask Thats it

    This was our first time at the restaurant. We celebrated our wife’s birthday with some delicious dinner and amazing ambiance provided by The Pods. We were attended by Mr. Sanjay who ensured that we had the best ever experience. Would love to try this place again.

    A lovely night out. The food was really good - the Thai Chicken Curry was amazing. Service was great. However I did find the 50AED price tag for a serve or rice outrageous.

    It took forever to actually get our food. We had to send our drinks back because they came out watered down. Than two things we ordered never came out after two hours so we had them cancel those food Items. The place looks great and it’s a cool idea but the service was very slow and we didn’t get all of our food.
