This is a great place 15 years ago but now it is NOT .. this is a call for renovation of the facility and it's staff. They should get new staff too.

People always come back to this place because they have one of the best outdoor shiaha areas and the food is usually good. But I am warning you, you always need to review your bill in Nakheel as they always attempt to add things you didn't order and they seem to get away with it because it happened to me... More

Nice place in the spacious "Palm Garden", near Corniche road. Separate spaces for men and women/familiies. Large diwans under open sky, therefore best after sunset when it becomes bearable outside. Nice selection of Levantine, Middle-Eastern food and lemonades. Have a shisha after dinner and enjoy just sitting there, discussing important memories of the day...

Dinning al fresco is always welcome. If the food is good, then it is fantastic. Al Nakheel has good food, specially remarkable its Saudi murtabak with minced meat and eggs and the lamb grilled kebabs. Not so good its cous cous, the meat was tough, I had to struggle to eat it. Nothing remarkable about service, so so. Atmosphere is... More

I have been to Al Nakeel three times and love the atmosphere and the cuisine is great - you do have to put up with inhaling others shisha smoke if you are not a smoker yourself, but if you are there for the atmosphere (and good food) then try to sit up-wind. A great selection on the menu, and the... More

It was an awful experience with the only good thing was "Motabbaq". Very bad and unwelcoming staff. Very old and dirty place. I don't think they know how to run a business. Avoid
