We went for a poor iftar buffet at Al Hallab, Dubai Mall. The restaurant was extremely crowded so the queue for the desserts and the main courses sections were very long. Talking about the eight main courses, if Al Hallab is a Lebanese restaurant, I guess, so why does the main courses include nuggets and lasagna? I am not going... More

We ate at Al Hallab during a visit to the Dubai Mall. The restaurant was bustling and almost full of people, mostly locals, which is always a good sign. We had a number of dishes including humus, eggplant dip, fallafals & kebab meats and these were all very good. The freshly made bread was excellent as was the service. Recommended.j

Visited the Dubai Mall branch in the early evening. We were met with a smile at the door but that was about it. We asked about terrace seating and were advised that it would be hot but welcome to check the temperature. It was a bit too hot for our liking so we opted to sit inside. It seemed a... More

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!

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.
