Arabic Food at its best

A must take to place for all visitors - have been going there since the last 30+ years and one thing is consistent is their quality of food. The salad that comes on to the table as soon as you settle is a conversation starter and have never seen anyone finishing the same. The Kebabs are just as... read more

Great food, lots of variety, healthy and tastes great. Fresh Strawberry juice was also very nice. Service was quick and they accept Dubai Entertainer Vouchers which got us a 241 deal.

Automatic restaurant is in JAFZA Dubai is one of the worst restaurants at all. They deliver the food late and cold with missing items. It is normal to get non complete meal with missing bread or missing garlic. The delivery person do not carry cash and steal part of the meal.

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.
