We enjoyed the lovely lebanese food. We sat out on the terrace. The food was lovely and served in the lebanese manner. Multiple dishes of mezze followed by the lvoely kebabs and completed with baklava. The most spectacular part of the evening was the lovely view it gave us of the fountains. We were able to enjoy the music and... More

I have been to this outlet twice. I enjoyed the food during both my visits. In fact, I think this is probably the best Arabic/Lebanese food in Dubai. However, I experienced consistent poor service at the restaurant. During my first visit, I thought it was just one of those days. However, last night I got to analyze this a little... More

Restaurant upstairs, café style downstairs - great food everywhere! Enjoyed a great meal here with friends. Cold starters with the excellent breads very good, followed by some nice grilled meats and salad. We found the service to be good and the price very reasonable. There are as few of these in town - I think this is the first and... More

The food is very tasty at al hallab however it's a shame that the same cannot be said for the service. Firstly we were greeted by the front reception and was told there was only seating inside which we were perfectly happy with she told us to follow a waiter which we did. We followed him to the drinks station... More

Had lunch there at the Mall of the Emirates restaurant this month. The food is really great, and the mint lemonade is the best! The sweets are also very tasty, make sure to leave some room for desert. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because everything was going great at lunch until it came time... More

The food and service here is great and a must try if you are visiting Dubai. My friend had never had Lebanese food so he was very pleased when his meal arrived. The prices are very reasonable and the quantities are large. Good place to eat and rest after a long day of shopping in the mall. I would definitely... More

This location was within walking distance of our hotel, the Jemeirah Creekside. We ate in the second floor dining room, which is nicely appointed (the downstairs is a bit sparer and a good place for coffee and sweets). The food was great and genuinely very reasonably priced. The food is very good and the menu is local. We loved that... More
