Safadi food has always been tasteful and the hot breads served on the table adds to the taste of your meals. We tried mixed grill, manakish and hummus, all the items very delicious except the lamb seekh kababs in the mixed grill which tasted like charcoal has been rubbed on them.

I live nearby and come here often for dinner. For what you pay, the food is always well prepared, tasty, and fresh, and it is correctly within reasonable time. Nice with fresh bread and some olives for at start. So why not five out of five? Simply because they do not have what is written on the menu. If you... More

We ate at the Al Safadi on Sheikh Zayed Rd. just south of the Financial Centre Metro and liked it so much we went back again a few nights later. We sat outside which I thought may be a problem with traffic noise, but that soon faded into the background. The inside dining area has aircon, but with the doors... More

Stayed at one of the many hotels down the road and ate here on 3 separate occasions (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). Prices very reasonable, food fresh and delicious (including bread baked in-house). Enjoyed everything except for the lamb sandwich, which was a bit dry. Locals preferred the outdoor patio area, but indoor seating area also very comfortable and atmospheric.

The place is always crowded so how bad could it be! Don't know why do many eat here. The portions are way too large per person. Hint order one meal for two people. The waiters move around in a hurry but don't pay attention after they serve you. The humus is fair too much oil not enough of something. They... More

Craving the food from Al Safadi. Service was great from the beginning. Nice outdoor seating area. Food was delivered quickly and was very fresh. Outdoor area was full of people so they clearly are doing something right! You won't be disappointed

Our first meal with a friend was here's. Simply amazing. The staff were courteous, the hammour fish was grilled to perfection. Flavours were amazing. Baba ganoush, hummus, breads, meat, and the lime cooler, all were top notch,

We went there few times and every times having different meal. None of the times was bad, not even close to bad. On the contrary it was great. It is Lebanese but actually this is typical food for the area. Go for grilled meat, no matter what you go for, fish, chicken, lamb. Don't expect the 5* service nor ingredients.... More
