All of this Food Festivals has an entrance fee and the food inside are not free. I Never been to the other three but my experience at the "Taste of Dubai" is something that I want to go again. What I like is that I get to taste the food that they normally serve in Dubai's finest and expensive restaurant like Armani Ristorante of Armani Hotel, Asado an Argentinian cuisine at The Palace Downtown, Frevo of Fairmont Hotel The Palm  and so much more. If you go to eat in these restaurant at least you need to spend 300 AED but at the taste of Dubai you'll get to taste their food more or less 20 AED.
