Wonderful night

Literally a dinner in the dessert. I may understand why it was so pricey. There were a lot of food options though I rank it as okay. But when it comes to the shows, it was really entertaining. Aziza was a great belly dancer. We enjoyed the night even though we almost got lost cause of its location.

In a real touristic looking location (a Bedouin tent with a glas wall) we got good buffet food. It was a mixture of Arabian and Indian food. The quality of the food was good. The service was OK, but we were only 5 Tables of persons in the summer... The show was really annoying. The all told us it should... More

I have eaten in the desert after a safari and found this to be a much better experience. The setting is amazing, staff were over the top excellent and wanted to ensure we were looked after all the time. Food staff in the buffet are very nice and accomodating if you want something cooked specially. For a buffet the food... More

We always take our visitors to Al Hadheerah for an Arabian Night experience. We prefer this more luxurious option over a desert safari anytime.

What an amazing evening! This was first time I saw the restaurant with a tent but actually it did not loose anything of its charm. Food was amazing with the Iranian chef Asadollah cooking the best kebabs I've ever had but the choice was huge and we hardly managed to get a taste of all the dishes. But another factor... More

amazing spread of food with live entertainment; a bit overpriced but worth a try once. The entrance towards the road has shops on both sides and men on horses waiting to greet you as like an arabica fairytale...

Whenever we have friends and family visiting we try to take them here. The food is great, there's a nice atmosphere, good entertainment and overall it's a fun evening... Quite expensive so the Entertainer vouchers came in handy!!

Easy reservation through email. You're invited to arrive before sunset to a tour at the Bab Al Sham Desert Resort. Do not expect a warm reception from the staff at the resort. You will have to find things on your own and you can not drink anything in the resorts bars while you wait for the restaurant to open (7... More
