The venue is beautiful as well as the direct view to Burj Khalifa and water fountain when your seated in the balcony. The food is very good and varied still service, yet friendly, to be improved (too length or too fast service, sometimes wrong order).

I have been frequenting Al Hallab for as long as I have been in this country, which equates to 9 years. This restaurant used to be my go to spot for authentic Lebanese cuisine at decent prices and excellent service. But lately I feel as though their service is declining. It always takes ages for them to bring your drinks,... More

Excellent variety of Kebabs and Juices. The Hummous is great and melts in your mouth. Go for the Hot mezzes, Kebabs and Juices. Good ambience too.

I visited this place three times, when you enter this restaurant you feel like you are intruding someones home! No sign of welcome or hospitality. Menu is excellent as well as the food. You will wait for your food or shish forever and need to call the waiter few times, waiters acting as jail keepers!

We had a very good experience here. Great ambience, authentic Arabic food and excellent service. Would highly recommend this restaurant in Dubai Mall to everyone for an evening dinner and outside seating for the view.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
