Had a nice meal here and I love Lebanese food, it is a fast food place but of a good standard and in a great position in the Mall to have a view of The Fountain especially if you manage to get a seat at the front!

It's probably easy to say but service in this area has nothing to compare with any other place in the world: simply excellent. Dubai Mall is a great place for entertainment and this restaurant won't disappoint your expectation. Very good food and if you're a Lebanese food lover (as I am) you won't be disappointed; wide-selection-menu, every dishes worth to... More

Fantastic hummus, baba ganoush, moist falafel. Great spot for lunch in Dubai Mall. If you're there on a day that is not sweltering...sit on their nice balcony.

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

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.
