Why Foodiva is featuring two Greek restaurant reviews in a row - Ammos and GAIA? Good and Bad. Positive and Negative. It seems really strange when the city is full of many other concepts, unless there is another purpose of this...? Also, the final comment in Ammos review is hinting negatively and indirectly on GAIA, ”Some new restaurants in Dubai do get it right from the start”. Now, Foodiva also sharing this in Linkedin, website - and sending to hercommunity by email. Wow! This is a cheap shot under the belt and not expected from you. You know, it’s also an art to let it go. Well, Chef Izu was right after all - it seems to be ’personal’.
