Ideal Arabian - Lebanese food

Located at Madinat Jumeirah, overlooking the canal, I would strongly recommend to book a table outside, not only for the view but with the air conditioning it can be really cold inside, unless you are visiting during summer, where it is extremely warm outside even at night.

Lovely location, great local feel, great food and very attentive staff. Our table was outside which was good but it was a little cramped.

Excellent setting and decor. I had not had Lebanese food before but I certainly will have it again.The service was first class and the waiters were very pleasant, My favourite Dijon mustard was produced! My lamb chops meal was more than adequate and the rest of the family had meals that looked good and were plentiful. I needed a box... More

This restaurant has an excellent location with beautiful views of the Madinat Jumeirah canal and an Arabian style traditional decor. They have indoor and outdoor dining but balcony tables overlook the Madinat Jumeirah canal.This was the main reason why we chose to dine there. They have good quality Lebanese cuisine but the prices are quite high. Service is good but... More

Each person has their own favorite familiar place. For me, one such place is the ‘Time of Arabia’ restaurant, located in Madinat Jumeirah. Actually, you can find all over Dubai great Arab and Lebanese restaurants for every taste and budget: from cutting-edge to simple take away. But I like this particular restaurant, maybe because I have long lived in Lebanon,... More

We had an early outside reservation for family dinner (adults and teens). Place looks very cool and "authentic". We were seated on deck as requested but them told you need to be 18 because of the water pipes. Moved inside but still smokey so could absolutely have stayed outside where ventilation would be better. Food was fine. Portions plentiful. But... More

If you love Lebanese food this place is a must ! A great selection of dishes available with far too many to choose from and the portions sizes were generous too! Outside seating allows you to smoke shisha and watch the boats go by on the water providing a great ambience to this dining experience.

The location is excellent, with a view over the Madinat and the sea. The decor is authentically Arabian. There is a wide variety of food to choose from, and the kitchen is amenable to making some changes to suit your desires. Try to sit away from the air conditioning unit, as it is quite noisy.
