My boyfriend and I are practically here everyday, to the point the waiters knows us already. Their shawerma and arabic shawerma are the best. Also the best fruit mocktail (called cocktail here), I love how it has fruit chunks and cashew nuts and cream on top. We never get tired of it. Most of our dates happen here.

The staff (especially the owner) are very nice and welcoming. The meat is really good here as well. Order the fatoush, it's awesome!

For very little money, we had a delicious lunch that came in a large portion. The hummus was creamy and nutty. The stuffed grape leaves were tangy without tasting too sharp. Grilled meat was not served at lunch, so we had a chicken stew for our protein. The tomato sauce was bright, and the chicken was tender and moist. The... More

This restaurant is one of my faves in town. The menu is simple, but incredible! Try the Arabic Schawarma. :) Also, you get great value for your money. I spent less than $4 and had enough left over for another meal. The staff is very welcoming as well.

When we were living in Al-Ain this place used to be our second home! The food is always fresh and cooked to a very good standard, they are one of the best for Lebanese food!

The food is good...not amazing, not horrible. Nothing really 'knocked my socks off. I stick to basic Arabic food. I tried the over priced shrimp (which I now call the million dollar shrimp) and was so disappointed, especially for 65aed. The guys are usually eager to help, which is nice.

If you like Arabian food, Al Mallah is a good bet. The food is cheap and the quality is good. It's up to par with traditional food in the area. They have good hummus and falafel. Four of us ate for 65 AED and we had leftovers. The service is not the typical fawning-all-over-you type of the pricier Western establishments,... More

I love the hummus with pine nuts. This restaurant is very popular with the locals; that tells you something right there.
