Amazing food variety and affordable cost with a lot of dishes and appetizers definitely you will find something you love but my advice is to go for a new stuff certainly you will like it

Great service and great food. Who could complain. Located in the Dubai mall, it was tough to find but worth it. The service was great and it was nice talking to the waiters about what to check out in the mall. Not extremely cheap or expensive, ask for a table near the fountains.

A true Lebanese gourmet restaurant... Not for the faint-hearted, as the spread is so vast, it will require many sittings to finish the many courses :) The service is top-class, and so is the food. Don't forget to order the Mezze Platter Though it is always crowded, unless you want to watch the fountains, one can find enough seating anywhere... More

One of the staff , Rohit koirala was the best among all of them . Polite and humble behavior with good sense of humor and respect. Good sense of cuisine and dining. Staffs like him make us visit hotels and restaurants more and more. All the staffs were good i suppose but , Rohit was above all of them .

I keep coming every chance I get, it is easy to choose the dishes because the food is "at your fingertips" and visible so you don't really need a menu!. Quality and service are definitely good and I love the hummus!

Had a great meal yesterday = mixed grill and okra. Wow! yet again my wife and I were not disappointed by the food and service. Godd sized portions and the continuous supply of the little puffed breads made the shared meal very enjoyable.

I have visited your restaurant many times, but this time i have decided to write a review. The Service, food and view to the fountains are the best points about this restaurant. I would recommend the Shish Tawuk as one of the best i have ever tried in Dubai.

Had high hopes for Wafi Gourmet Dubai Mall, but sadly the service is nonexistent and the attitude of the waiters and supervisor (Sarhan) stinks. Staff are too busy chatting to eat other and not even concerned about their clients. Today I found a hair in my salad and no apology from the supervisor/manager or waiters. Food is average I've had... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
