We went to the branch located in Dubai mall and we had a table outside, therefore we enjoyed the nice views (even if it was quite hot). The service is OK and the food is very good. The hummus was my favourite and the meat and fish were excellent. In my opinion the best lebanese restaurant in Dubai.

We visited the Dubai Mall branch and loved the food and the atmosphere. The balcony has great views but it was too hot to eat outside. But we liked the decor and the soft background music. Despite what others said, we thought the service was efficient and attentive. Good choices from vegetarians, but mostly from the mezze section. And the... More

I've tried several Lebanese restaurants in Dubai over the years and Al Hallab is by far the best and one of the most authentic. It's great value for money as well in a city were restaurants are generally overpriced. My wife and I go there every now and then. I love their Arayes and vine leaves! The service at Dubai... More

Enjoyed this restaurant....it has excellent Lebanese food... Certainly the best hummus I have tasted in Dubai. The grilled meats very succulent & soft, and the freshly baked khaboos were a delight. The staff were also very polite & friendly. I was, however, disappointed with the shawarmas.... they were mediocre at best. C'mon guys... you certainly can make the shawarmas on... More

Went to the Dubai Mall restaurant, seated immediately, order taken promptly. Food arrived much more quickly than we expected, and all of it was excellent. Plenty of choice for vegetarians, but not from the main meal menu - chose from the mezze selections, which is what we often do in Middle Eastern restaurants. Surprised at comments from other reviews about... More

We went there to buy baklava,as suggested by a local friend,there is lot of variety in baklava,and they take really some time to pack it for you.looked tempting but we were really disappointed.Probably after having Turkish Baklavas,it's difficult to be impressed by these.
