Eat, drink and shop
Restaurants in The Greens are mainly in the shopping centre, which also has a popular Choithrams supermarket, mosque, pharmacy, optician, cookie store, nail spa and several ATM bank machines. The complex features a string of restaurants and cafes with outdoor seating, including the Asian-inspired Wagamamas, Mashawi Lebanese restaurant, Costa coffee, KFC and Bert’s cafe. Nearby Emaar Business Park has more eating options, with pizza places a plenty and some coffee shops. For the food conscious, the Organic Foods & Café is a supermarket that stocks a range of health foods, with an eatery serving a menu of organic dishes. Standing alone, Nando’s offers spicy Afro-Portuguese fare, while the terrace of Caribou Coffee is a popular meeting-sitting-chatting-hanging around spot. When you need a dose of noise and excitement, neighbouring Barsha Heights (Tecom as was) has an abundance of restaurants, coffee shops, bars, supermarkets, nightclubs and takeaways that will deliver to The Greens.
