“Average Arabic Food but poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

The restaurant is located in Central Dubai in one of the busy districts. Food quality is average for this type of restaurant. Their service though is a different story. Customers are frequently ignored and forgotten. It maybe OK to visit to get some quick bite of Arabic food, but be prepared to their lack of service.

“Great food, value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Based on good reviews, we ate here on a Sunday evening. Service was quick and efficient, if lacking in warmth and friendliness. However, the food was excellent, with large portions, a whole heap of free bread and vegetables, and all for a great price (about 120 drm for three including appetizers and water). I can recommend the falafel, charcoal chicken, shish kebab and Greek salad.

“Fresh, original, arrabic variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Selected via Tripadvisor iPhone App while in the near. Big place with lots of tables and waiters. No waiting. Freshly baked bread. Asked for recommendations for our waiter to taste as much as possible varieties. He set us up with multiple small plates and we shared it with three men plus water and freshly prepared multifruit cocktails from the fruit bar at the very right corner and paid below 240 AED. Great value!

“Genuine Arabic Food Experience !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Aroos Damascus has been around for years and there's a reason for that. They serve genuinely good food. The quality hasn't changed in years. Yes, they do have their moments but overall the taste, prices, service has been consistent. I would recommend the Kebab Kishkash. Best kebab on the menu. The foods easy on the pocket. Large quantities of bread, salad, chili garlic dips are given free so you only need to order the main dishes. Once you're done you're served a steaming cup of suleimani. What more could anyone possibly ask for. Would go there again and again and again.
