They are serving authentic Lebanese dishes. Our order was Automatic special grill platter and Hummus Beiruti. Hummus tastes superb and it lasts in my tongue. Grill platter also good savor. Their mutton is yummy and soft –really enjoyed eating. Ordinary ambience but clean and fresh.

Food has promise, it might be nice but tough to tell as it was cold due to being late. Reasonable price but they are clearly not paying their drivers enough. When we called to complain, they told us to get a refund/new food we had to return the original dishes. This wasn't really appealing as we probably would've starved to... More

I always go here for Lebanese in Dubai and Sharjah and over 20 years the quality is superb - much better than my favourite Lebanese restaurant in London. The salads are delicious as is the hummus schwarma and the meat is cooked perfectly. Great value too.

Don't be fooled by this restaurant being in a shopping mall. This place churns some serious Lebanese food, so fresh and tasty. We went for lunch with family and cousins and tried most of the menu, including the lunch specials. Every dish was sublime.

We also enjoyed their fine selection of nice Arabic. They gave a great atmosphere which... More

Quantity is poor and can be improved. No VFM. One general observation after visiting al safadi al reef automatic and lebanese village restaurant is Lebanese restaurant staff are... More

Granted, the decor was a bit dated, but what a great little cafe this is. Friendly and attentive staff and lovely, lovely food. Hummus was great as we're the chicken and lamb kebabs. Fresh bread was a treat.
