We visited them a couple of times and every time we had a splendid time there. The place looks very good, a bit fancy, having a great view. The food is great in quality, size and price. Amazing! I recommend everyone to give it a try.

It is a very nice restaurant with a nice view. Food was very nice and you can find many variety of meals. Staff was polite and friendly. Hygiene is less than many similar restaurants in Dubai. I saw a waiter coughing alot while serving the food!!!

Al Hallab service is so nice. They keep your bread warm, and it is delicious. Food is great, with Lebanese specialities but also some international dishes. A must. Dubai Mall near the Cascade, with the rumor of the water in the background.

Sitting on the terrace overlooking the fountains and lightshow on Burj Khalifa is an experience. The food is superb, service very professional and prices are very good.

Every time I come to Dubai (and I do so every 3 month), it is a must for me to visit one of the restaurants Al Hallab. Amazing and fresh food, Lebanese cuisine can be compared to Italian cuisine in Europe. Tasty tabule, humus, grill, kebab, garlic paste is my usual a la carte and I strongly can recommend it!

The portions are large, which is a pity as I was on my own. I had a delicious salad and wonderfully tender chicken. The lime and mint drink was super tasty. There are loads of waiters so you are well looked after. Worth making the effort to eat here.

This was for lunch, so mostly small appetizers (humus, chicken liver, eggplant, shrimps). well done, good service, Nice wifi also and a place to escape the heat and energy of the city. The main part of the restaurant is on the second floor (US nomenclature) so be prepared for some steps

We ate here on first night in Dubai. Near hotel and had great rep from FB. The menu, food and service was exactly what I wanted from a top Middle Eastern style restaurant. Food was authentic, varied and delicious. Service was attentive, helpful and friendly. There were few tourists and lots of locals which is always a good sign. The... More

I ordered the lamb biryani and thought it was quite good although I thought the basmati rice was slightly overcooked and too soft. The lamb morsels otherwise were splendid and came with a mint yoghurt sauce. You are served hot flatbreads as soon as you order from the menu and the waiters kindly ask if you want the bread basket... More
