Had a group dinner at Al Makan in Feb'13. The starters were superb. I had so many bread with the hummus and other dips that by the time the mains arrive, I was telling my friend "that's my second round of dinner!" :) The flat bread was really nice and the various dips were terrific!
Our mains for that night was seafood. Think grilled lobster, baked fish, etc. Every item was done nicely and suit everybody's taste-bud so perfectly well. Despite some comments about having too much flat bread (yes, not me alone but everybody on the table really enjoyed the starters!), we slowly made our way through the mains and leave the plates clean at the end.
Location was perfect with great view of the Jumeirah. Our outdoor table was a bit too long to hold a group conversation so we ended up conversing in smaller group among those sitting nearby. The noise level at the place was acceptable, considering the open air area. The cool evening breeze was very relaxing. A little set-back was merely on the traffic around this place which make cars move slower than turtles. But for the quality of food served, we would gladly face the traffic just to come back for the same great dinner!
