“Excelent night out with friends....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2014 NEW via mobile

I have been in Nawwara several times on Fridays for the music night where I can dance all night with the great urban music! For the first time I tried to go on a Thursday night where the music is a bit different and it was amazing as well.... Great place with great music....definitely my favorite in Dubai....

“Its absolutely worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2014

It's definitely a place worth visiting, because the food is so delicious, prices are surprisingly reasonable and the interior is beautiful! I have very high expectations when it comes to restaurants and at Nawwara I was impressed. Don't hesitate!
I should may be mention that portions are smaller than what one might expect from an arabic restaurant, but this is something I really liked - leaving the place feeling good about my dinner and not too stuffed :)
Try it out!

“Excellent Arabic dinning experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2014

I have never been to an Arabic restaurant such as this before, located on the 5th floor of the Marriott Marquis in Dubai. The restaurant is very well appointed, lovely seating, decorations are period pieces and classic Arabic interior design. The food was delicious, I was hosting a dinner for 12 people, nine of my guests were from Vietnam and at the suggestion of the waiter we chose a 4 course set menu with a combination of hot and cold starters, a variety of lamb, beef and chicken kebabs. The menu is extensive and al-a-cart, the selection can fit for a single diner or a group, the set menu's are also very good choices, we chose the Perl Menu, but the Gold Menu looked very delicious as well. Our waiter was very good, he made suggestions that were spot on, hi food and drink suggestions pleased all my guests. At the close of dinner, we had a selection of Arabic sweets, and Moroccan Tea, a lovely hot tea infused with mint and slightly sweetened, another great choice from our waiter. In closing, a personal choice, I was the only one at the table to have a beer, I tried their Lebanese beer selection and I have to admit it was very good, a nice addition if you like an adult beverage with dinner. Overall great meal at a really nice restaurant.

“The Henna ceremony site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

A great combination of indoor and outdoor settings makes Nawwara unique and stunning in every way. The bar was set outside with well executed Caiparhinas and soothing Mohitos. The food was with a middle eastern twist and well prepared

“Top place to be seen in Dubai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2014 via mobile

This is a lovely place to go out in Dubai, since you enter in the hotel (JW Mariott) you feel special. We were with a group of friends in one of the Muzik night parties. Good company, great drinks and the sambuca shots to die for :) the manager was very attentive and kept an eye on the great staff. I will be back for sure!
