As the title suggests this place is a great place to eat in a relaxed environment. The decor had a tradtional arabic/morroccan feel and felt very authentic. Food was very tasty, and the service was excellent. Waiter who looked after us was very courteous and attentive. Also if you like shisha or hookah then its the perfect way to unwind... More

Well located,comfortable seating, option of Sheesha makes the place more lively. Food options for vegetarians and carnivores is equally good. Suggest go empty stomach and try all of their delicacies. Large place hence getting a table should not be a problem.

The branch near Dubai mall was full up when we called ahead to reserve, so we went to the restaurant on Jumeirah beach road. It was large and almost empty, now i don't wonder why. The kebabs were very salty and dry like they were made earlier and reheated and served. Although the food arrived really fast, it was not... More

I went with a mixed group including Arabic and they were not impressed. The presentation is not that great compared to the price. Weird combinations. Quality, flavor was ok but I too had the experience of embarrassment from the waiter to the point of getting angry with the place. Might be authentic but I mostly saw foreigners here, no way...

There are so many branches of Reem Al Bawadi now but the original on jumeirah beach road is still the best! Quirky decorations, delicious food and a huge shisha menu makes for a levy evening! Try the fruit cocktail juice!

A selection of arabic food from the middle east created an interesting selection for those who like all sorts of food from this region.

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighborhood Profile
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighborhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.
