Cyber Monday – Issue 2 – Voila Dubai
If I’m not working on shopping, I’m usually planning which new restaurant I want to visit. Living in Dubai means we are spoilt for choice and can, theoretically, visit a new restaurant every weekend and never have to repeat. And to help discover these new places, I use VoilaDubai.ae.
Having lived in the US, whenever we couldn’t decide on which restaurant to go for dinner, we would use Yelp.com. It even helped me discover some hidden wonders during my last visit to New York. And I always wished there was a local variant of it here, which is exactly what I describe Voila Dubai as.
Voila Dubai is essentially a review aggregator for all your favorite places: restaurants, bars, stores, services and much more. The best thing is that anyone can write a review, thus giving you an unbiased, accurate opinion about these places. Business can came claim ownership of their pages and improve their service by monitoring customer feedback.
I’ve been a member of Voila Dubai for almost 6 months and written quite a few reviews. It feels great to share that new great takeout place or bakery with a larger audience. I’ve listed a few of my favorites below and hopefully you too will start contributing to this helpful community portal. Go ahead, sign up on Voila Dubai today!
