My wife and i were disappointed as the main course were served before the salads with a terrible excuse by the waiter. One of the main course dishes served cold which means it wad prepared earlier. I dont think i will come back here again.

Staying at the Emirates Palace we has to try the Emirati restaurant Mezlai. The welcome was warm and the food was hotter! Very nice. I recommend the Samboussa starter and Shebab to finish.

We enjoyed three excellent meal in this lovely restaurant. It's set in a garden at the Palace and has lovely seating, some in tents! The food was delicious and really tasty and all the staff were excellent, especially Dino who served us on two occasions. Do try the Lebanese red wine - it's delicious. Thank you

This is one of the best tasting emirate experiences we have had in the UAE. All of the food was cooked to perfection with taste out of this world. We ate on the HB option and there were many different dishes to choose from. It was recommended to us by the front of house staff and we were not disappointed.
