The best way to enjoy Emirati food...in the desert!

A group of us visited Al Hadheerah at the request of an employer who wanted us to experience the flavour of his culture. We had no idea what to expect... A long drive from Dubai into the desert, and we arrived at Al Hadheerah. After a walk from the entrance through a 'souk' on Arabian rugs which... read more

It is an Arabian night with an amazing experience along with the Arabic themed buffet that gives you the feeling that you are at home. The staff are very attentive and makes your evening looks mystical especially as Mr Yasser & ًWatany was fantastic in our service with us . I will be back for sure

Just got back to the hotel I could not white to write my review. If you are ever in Dubai go to Al Hadheera restaurant in bab Al shams resort on Thursday or Friday (the only days they have the fireworks, the fire works only in winter). Every thing is amazing the show the food the life cooking stations the... More

As a resident of Dubai, we often get visitors and love taking our guests to new restaurants. Al Hadheerah, has a good look and feel to it however the food is so disappointing and doesnt reflect the Arabic tastes of Dubai at all. It was bland and for AED500 per head definitely not worth it. We ordered a birthday cake... More

It is a lengthy taxi drive from Dubai but, as I proved to my travel companions, so very worth it! You are welcomed via a torch-lit and carpeted path, walking through a small souq of sorts to reach the host station. Upon learning that this was our first time, the host walked us through all the food stations - which... More

We had to drive one hour out from our hotel in Dubai Financial District so we were very tired out by the time we came. However it is well worth the experience. It is a bit expensive per person for dinner, sound usd 145. But it includes the falconry and horse riding and belly dancing show. We had earliest asked... More

I took some friends who were visiting Dubai to Al Hadheerah for the Thursday dinner buffet and it was a delightful experience. The dinner itself, although a bit pricey as it does not include an alcohol package, was delicious and well varied with live cooking stations. Even though I am not a fan of lamb my friends tried the lamb... More
