Times of Arabia is a wonderful restaurant serving great Lebanese inspired food. The ambiance is wonderful and the setting with a view of the Madinat waterways is almost magical. The staff were friendly and efficient and the price was reasonable for the overall quality of the experience.

We brought our visitor for her first meal in Dubai. The ambiance really great especially if you have visitors. It’s overlooking the waterway and the abras. The restaurant was well decorated in Arabic design. We were seated outdoor and they had a/c above the tables which made it comfortable to sit outdoors in 38c degrees. We ordered some mixed grilled,... More

There was no room on the table so she starting shovelling what we had been eating onto a single plate...so not appropriate. When... More

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
