“Amazing place - do not miss this gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

This place is a hidden gem in the WAFI mall. I literally found it by accident. It's a big open piazza surrounded by high walls. It's has beautiful high stone walls adorned with many different artifacts and a huge old wooden water wheel. The kitchen is amazing - you can see them baking your bread and grilling your kebabs. The food was great and we dined on charcoal grilled chicken, kibbeh, hummus, tabouleh, potato wedges and lots of fresh bread, pomegranate juice - rounded off with great Turkish coffee. Service was great and we took tons of photos. You must go there. 4 adults paid AED 400.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Good food, great staff and nice light atmosphere sums this great restaurant up. With so much competition in Dubai khan murjan has a tough time trying to be me and my family's top choice, but second best is still an accomplishment!

“Authentic Arabic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Many different cuisines. We decided for Tagine (chicken and lamb). The taste was delicious and my friend claims it was the best lamb she ever had. Accompanied by freshly squeezed juice - a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables to choose from - and a pipe of tobacco from the traditional water pipe - made it a perfect dinner at VERY reasonable prices. We will go there again and highly recommends it.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

We go to khan Murjan quite often, and it never disappoints. Most of the starters are great, especially the samake harra and moussaka and their tagine dishes are excellent! The meat with artichoke Simone of our favorites...the lamb just melts off the bone with hardly a touch from the knife. Their desserts are ok, but not as great as their savory dishes

“Spoilt for choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

At Khan Murjan you really are spoilt for choice they have a huge selection of middle eastern cuisine, and are proud to show you round their open kitchen and explain all the different dishes, We always make a point of taking all our visitors to this restaurant. It is set in the basement of the Wafi Mall, but is open to the stars. It is a courtyard setting and although there is no alcohol sold the choice of fruit juices and mocktails are fantastic, On my latest visit We began with a selection of meze, the great temptation is to eat so much, that you are too full for the main course, I suggest you share main meals as they are fairly large, The Iranian chicken biryani was the best I have every eaten. Although this meal was enough for two. To sum up great food great atmosphere and a really good night out,
