It has been several years since I visited this place and I must say it's nowhere close to how I remember it. They skimp on serving size of hummus and the bread they bring in a zip lock bag is atrocious! Not even heated or freshly made like other places nearby. It doesn't take much to put a little thought...

Service was slow, I have to remind them about our order. They brought the main course first and forgot about our order of appetizer/salad. It was served late. I have to ask twice to get our bill and when I gave my card to pay, they have asked me to bring the bill together going down since we are done... More

We had dinner at this place, its a quite good place and the food was good too. We sat outside and its not advisable to sit outside during the summer as outside is too hot and though they have arrange fans around.

Decent selection of fish to choose from - the service was OK, albeit we had a little delay. The humous was nice as a starter we shared. For main I chose the King fish which was nice, as was the sauce it was in, the rice was a bit cooler than I like but certainly nothing major, the vegetables came... More

The food was ok. But I don't think I can go back again. The humus was good but two my kids got Stomach ache. We had king fish $15 not worth, fish did not taste fresh. Mix fruit juice was good.

Huge selection on the menu. Food was ok and simple but not much to write home about. Good for lunch but for a nice fresh dinner, ld look elsewhere.

I have ordered the sea food soap, it is well cooked and not fresh. Then I had the grilled Hamour with vegetables and rice, and it was the worst food ever I had in my life. Don't try it unless you want to get sick.

This restaurant is by far the worst I have ever been in Souq Waqif. We waited for the food for over 30 minutes and when they finally served it, it was cold. We asked them for glass with ice, spoon and fork, tissue, ketchup, salt, and pepper (we have to request it one by one) we wait and after minutes... More

Food quality was very good, huge selection of juices and very tasty shisha! Atmosphere is very nice wether you sit in the terrace on the first floor or on the ground floor if you're lucky to find a table. Al Bandar is by far the best souq has to offer. Service is a bit slow however all the rest makes... More
