There are countless healthy and clean eating options in Dubai and we are always on the lookout for new concepts – This week, we try out Feels Juice Bar & Kitchen at the Kite Beach. Did they manage to combine flavours, products and their expertise to create feel-good food? It’s time to find out.
Born out of a passion for clean eating and creativity, Feels Juice Bar & Kitchen offers high-quality food served with good vibes. Feels creates a laid-back ambience to give customers an unforgettable experience of good food, unmatchable service and most importantly the opportunity to catch some real good vibes any time of day. Located on Dubai’s popular Sunset Beach, the brand has plans to expand and open new outlets later this year. “Meals are prepared by highly skilled staff who are trained in the art of nutrition allowing them to give advice and suggest suitable dishes for customers. Our clean eating head chef and in-house nutritionist work closely to provide only the best to our customers, always providing taste, convenience, innovation and health,” says Mohamed M. Al Falasi, founder of Feels.
Feels is a food concept that speaks to the core of why we should eat clean. The menu, at Feels, is curated with recipes that rebalance and nourish the body while all clean dishes are prepared fresh daily with premium ingredients. Feels combines clean food with flavour to create outstanding dishes, juices and smoothies that cater to various tastes and dietary requirements of their customers. Menu offerings span across breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, freshly pressed juices, smoothies and a wide variety of coffee options.
Feels aims to combine sustainability with taste, nutrition, convenience and an ever-growing appetite for clean food. And based on our experience, they have done pretty well:
Taste – The team has experience with food, and it is clearly seen – the recipes are well made and closer to comfort food than diet meals. Hearty; Filling; Flavourful. They create food you feel good about eating.
Nutrition – Whilst most brands on the market focus on a specific diet or trend (keto, low calorie, low GI.. ), Feels is all about balanced meals. The recipes are balanced enough to fit a healthy and active lifestyle.
From colourful salads that are made from 100% natural and fresh ingredients to wellness shots that are designed to provide a burst of vitamins, Feels pushes to restore vitality. Their products are chemical-free, preservative-free and freshly made on the spot in their on-site kitchen.
Feels Juice Bar & Kitchen not only has its customer’s health in mind but the health of the planet. As part of its internal green operations, the venue has an internal waste tracking system, where waste is segregated for efficient recycling.

They have an extensive menu that offers breakfast, salad bowls, power bowls, sandwiches and snacks. Smoothies, protein shakes, pressed juices and shots are available for the discerning clients.

Their power bowls are filled with delicious, healthy ingredients like grains, veggies, and lean protein to provide long-lasting energy throughout the day.

There’s a wide assortment of flavors here that it will keep your taste buds entertained until the very last bite.
