Me and my family, we love Dubai and we love shopping, so Dubai Mall is a must have. I like Al Hallab restaurant, because arab food is my favourite and you can have really tasty houmos and lamb over here. Also, if you get table on terrace, you have magnificient view over the Dubai Fountain.

We often dine at one of the Hallab restaurants whether its in the Mall of Emirates, Dubai Mall or Al Garhoud. I classify it as "comfort food" - tasty, plentiful in quantity and good value.

service is really slow here but food is good and prices are average. they can do better with a faster service but you always have to have in mind that fresh food takes time to cook.
