I went to Times of Arabia restaurant during Ramadan for Iftar. Unlike most of the restaurants in Ramadan that offering only Iftar Buffet, this restaurant was offering a set menu. The set menu contains Ramadan beverages, cold Mezza (starter), Hot Mezza, main course, and dessert. The quantity of food was generous. The services was excellent by a very helpful staff.... More

Restaurant décor in a typical middle-eastern Arabic setting. Mainly a Lebanese menu, serving excellent starters and main dishes to a high standard. Staff were hospitable (as one would expect in Arabic establishments) though eastern European, nevertheless, a wonderful evening in a restaurant I would thoroughly recommend.

So this place was a little strange, compared to other restaurants in the madinat, the service here was poor. They were more preoccupied with chatting to one another than asking us if we had any drinks or checking if we had ordered our food. The food was mediocre. Wouldn't rush back.

Good staff, friendly and attentive to all of your needs. Food was excellent with what seemed traditional menu. Priced was reasonable for the staff, food and surroundings.

This is first time visit for me. My colleague brought me here. Though we were seated outside, the air con was still blasting away. The night was cooler than the day experienced. Location is fantastic. Suggesting book in advance if you want a near balcony seating. Some of the guests were smoking from a water based pipe and the stench... More

Best place to do shisha in Madinah Jumeriah, abliet the prices are a bit steep! But that is expected considering the location. Good mocktails too!

The place itself is pretty shiny, with lots of ostentatious decor which looks pretty harmonious given the setting. If you want to smoke shisha, you will have to sit outside on the terrace. The babaganoush, hummus and chicken livers are fantastic. Try the flatbread with cheese and lamb inside. The service is very efficient, albeit it does create an impression... More
