“Food & Service Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

The food and service are both fantastic and well worth the cash. Both Western and Middle Eastern dining traditions are catered for, with communal mezze and grills listed alongside self-contained starters and main courses, making sure those who start perspiring at the idea of sharing their food aren’t left out. Salads are as strong and zingy as you might expect, but it’s the meat and seafood dishes that Atayeb really shines, with everything from lamb tagines to seafood grills tasting fresh and perfectly prepared. Atayeb is a higher class of Middle Eastern grub which isn also equally worth of your attention.

“Good Food in an out of this world location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2010

Took my wife to this restaurant, having been with work colleagues before, we had a great night, the food was so tasty, the staff were very knowledgeable and attentive, we were even given free sweet dishes for us to try as they were changing their menus and needed feedback. The restaurant is located over the F1 race track, underneath the ever changing colours of the Futuristic Yas Hotel, the price was expensive but not extortionate. A good night out at a leisurely pace.
