Tasty food, uncomfortable seating

We had dinner here recently and sat on the patio at a table for two. The table was both unstably constructed and on wheels, resulting in the table lurching suddenly back and forth between us during the meal and intermittently slamming into our knees. We did not ask to be moved to a different... read more

Went here with a group of friends during a recent stay. In short, the food was very good, service was good, and we had a fun time. Beautifully decorated place with music in the background. There are a lot of options in the Souk, we wanted something a little more local flavor. We ordered 3 or 4 appetizers to share... More

We had visitors over from the UK & we wanted to show them Lebanese food so given the fact that you can grab a glass of red it seemed a sensible choice . We ordered a large fattoush ,special mixed grill ,grilled halloumi , homous & tabbouleh . During the meal the service was good and atmosphere was pleasant .... More

This is a very pleasant restaurant in the Souk at Medinat Jumeirah. The menu is extensive but as with all restaurants in this area it is a little over priced. The food we ate was very good, hummus, grilled halloumi cheese, Falafel and chicken kebab, all tasty and good sized portions. Views from the terrace are nice looking over the... More

We ate here for dinner whilst we were in the Madinet. Like most restaurants in this area I think it is overpriced for what you get. On the positive side the staff were good, the interiors were fabulous. The food portions were quite small for the price and the taste was pretty good but we won't be returning here again.

I stopped in this restaurant for dinner with work colleagues. the menu is extensive and it offers something for everyone. I love Lebanese food and enjoy trying different Lebanese cuisines. This one I would give 3 out of 5 in terms of food quality but location is amazing with nice deco as part of an old market with modern finish.... More

Do not go to this restaurant. It is the worst place I have eaten in Dubai and I have lived here a few years. The food is edible but that is the best I can say for it. It is in the fine dining section of the Entertainer but even with that it is still not good value as it... More

When we walked in to the Times of Arabia I fell in love with the decor, it reminded me of some of the restaurants I’d eaten at in Istanbul. The colors were very warm and the décor was very rich and vibrant; we got to sit at a booth that was set up with cushioned benches and a low table... More

Our hotel concierge had made dinner reservations and I actually stood right beside him as he was speaking to the restaurant staff. However when we got there, the waitress/hostess told us that we had reservations for two adults with two children and had to sit inside. We were, as she could see with her own eyes actually four adults with... More
