Eaten here at least 20 x over the last few years. It is one of the increasingly less common more traditional, old style Lebanese in central Dubai. I agree with some of the negatives - service could be friendlier. Unfortunately as is all too common here I think the Filipino waiters can be a bit down trodden and lose some... More

I went to this restaurant with my wife upon arrival in dubai, as it was very close to our apt. In the financial center. We had delicious dinner with hummus, lemon Marinated bins, birhany chicken and lamb. Very good white and brown bread. Juices are also very good and freshly squeezed. Recommended if you are in the neighborhood.

I have known this restaurant for years and until now I have mixed feelings about it. Some of the dishes are quiet amazing, some are disappointing and others are just average. The customer service is average and sometimes even dismissive and patronizing. Superb dishes: chicken livers in pomegrante molasses, fried cheese pastries, fried kebbeh, spinach pastries, rice with lamb and... More

We were staying at Dusit Thani Dubai, and were recommended by the hotel staff to visit this place. The outdoor seating was very pleasant and comfortable. The staff were quick to organise a big table for us away from the crowd. The dips and warm homemade bread was really nice. The mixed grill was also very tender. But the best... More

Went for dinner as it was recommended and was close to our hotel. Great interiors (though we had to move to another table before we ordered as the aircon was faulty and water was dropping on the table, they quickly noticed). There is lots of waiters who are watching your every move and are there to refill the bread basket... More

The food here is great, tasty and served promptly with a smile but if you sit outside prepare for your ears to be insulted by the noise from the worlds busiest Intercity Highway, Sheikh Zayed Road...all 12 lanes in full cacophony as you try to enjoy your meal.
