There's almost no interests (max 0.5-1% pa) in any bank for current/savings accounts, except fixed deposit.
I have used NBD Gold Payroll Account for years without problem, and have been using their Internet Banking services for monthly bill payments. no minimum balance, no fee, cheque book, internet banking, free gold credit cards for life.

Mashreq gives loan easier than other banks. My employer was able to take a loan only in Mashreq. If you want a car in credit you should speak with a few banks first about the loan and only after that transfer your salary there.
Many banks like Emirates looked at your nationality first and then on your salary...

I also have accounts there but there are some limitations for minimum salary you earn and loans. If somebody had good salary it would be Ok for him.
