Besides a wide array of 1600 restaurants in the UAE, we also offer our cardholders attractive discounts at over 1200 restaurants across GCC and India including at leading chains such as Café Coffee Day in India.

Earlier this year, Mashreq revamped the Flavours mobile application which presents users with an entirely new design and user experience by conducting a comprehensive study to analyze and assess how the original version was being used and as a result, the all new and improved ‘Mashreq Flavors’ was created.
The features that differentiate this application from others include a simple to use interface that highlights the information most important to the user, easy accessibility, user friendly onscreen instructions for easy navigation across the application, a ‘nearby offers’ feature which lists all the offers available in a three to four kilometer radius from the user’s location, and other features such as the option to search by one distinctive word or cuisine. The application also has a unique Savings feature that allows cardholders to keep track of the billed amounts and cumulative savings they enjoy through this dining program.
The Mashreq Flavours mobile application can be downloaded from the Apple App store and Android Play store. To promote the newly revamped Flavours package, 60 lucky winners every month will have the opportunity to dine for free.
Time Out Dubai, launched in 2001 and reviews the city’s best restaurants and attractions on a weekly basis. The strategic partnership will give Mashreq customers access to a wealth of features, reviews and user generated content about the best places to eat out and take advantage of the host of benefits offered by the application.
