I am a great fan of Lebanese food and this restaurant lived up to my expectations. I recommend their delicious raheb salad with aubergine, tomatoes and vegetables and a hearty portion of fattoush salad. The service is attentive and it’s a great place to dine with family with a reasonable price.

We had to order water three times to get it. A no go. Food quality OK, we liked the lamb cubes. Mezza a disappointment, especially the... More

The Lebanese food is awesome, very tasty, mostly original, generous portions and good value for money. We (3) had a whole lot of food for only 200 Dirham. I would say that this is one of the better restaurants in Dubai Mall but definitely nothing for a special occasion. Try to snatch a table outside on the patio or balcony... More

I went to Al Hallab with a friend of mine who lives in Dubai and it was a great choice as the food was absolutely brilliant. Also, surroundings itself can hardly be better as it's situated in Dubai Mall next to amazing Burj Khalifa and famous fountains. Highly recommended!

We ate dinner there while visiting the mall. We wanted a place that had regional food and picked this Lebanese restaurant. The decor is nice and has a patio which overlooks the fountains, so we were able to see the fountain show. We are not very familiar with Lebanese food, so we ordered 3 of what were described as small... More

This is a very nice Lebanese restaurant in Mall of the Emirates. The service is very prompt and the food is very consistent and delicious. The waiters are very attentive. Highly recommended items include all items from the grill as well as ‘batata hara’ which is essentially potato cubes with spices. What I like: *consistent quality of food *prompt service... More

I am recovering from a bout of food poisoning following a Thursday dinner at Al Hallab. This is a direct result of eating 90% of the full serving of their kibbeh niyeh. I had my reservations about eating it in the first place, the color was light pinkish and there was a peculiar taste about it...but the friend next to... More

Very good and authentic Lebanese food and sweets. Nice view from the terrace of fountain but too far to hear the music.
