We won't return to this restaurant as it took over an hour to provide us with our main course and when it arrived 3 out of 5 of the dishes were cold. We complained and the dishes were removed only to be returned 5 minutes later having been zapped in the microwave. We then complained to the manager who was... More

Souk Madinat Jumeirah is a hotel/shop/restaurant complex nearby Burj Al Arab hotel. The place is quite tranquil and reminds me of Vegas. There are numerous options for eating both inside and outside plus some souvenir shops. We arrived at 7pm for our dinner and place was almost empty. The menu is heavy on Middle-Eastern dishes, including Mezzas, grills and kebabs.... More

Located in the artificial souk of DXB, the restaurant offers a variety of Arab-style dishes. There is a big variety of starters, the mains are more "concise". The food itself is tasty and good quality. One dish was not 100% hot and the staff was making effort to fix the problem. We had seat outside on the balcony with A/C... More

We went there for my wife to discover lebanese food and an exotic place. Service was very poor, they should learn how to smile, waiter came very late, food was below average compared to other lebanese restaurants in dubai. Pricing is extremely high, more than 120 AED (~35$) for shish taouk (2 chicken skewers, oily fries and half an onion... More
