I'm about six months behind everyone else on the whole Madinat scene, because I live the other end of town, but can give some handy hints gathered on recent trips.
1. The doors on the loos in Left Bank get stuck. You have to yank on the top (a bit of a nightmare if you're short like me) or shout for help.
2. Trader Vics is more expensive and not as good as the original in Crowne Plaza, which has to be applauded for its daily Happy Hour 6 - 8pm, which allows you to drink like a fish, fall over, eat McDonalds and go home, all by 10pm, which is excellent news on a school day.
3. Noodle House - again not as good as the Emirates Towers original, and can be full of squawking kids.
