I’ll never come back here again !!! they ordered a big fish, it cost 270 dirhams, barbecue salads, and so on, asked them to pack the fish with them, brought them home, unpacked the next day and I had a shock, some piece of meat...was lying around, they came to the restaurant, told the situation, showed the photo everything, the administrator didn’t even come to us, he sent all the SMS through the waiter, they didn’t even offer us tea or coffee, they said sorry, but who the will give my money to me if it’s not my mistake! I will never, never will be back! !More

I visited the restaurant and expect high standard of service. The Phillipino man working almost the restaurant will be closed. Greeting us and ask is this the first time by pointing the finger to the customer woth unwelcome manner. "First time" "Arabic?!" Are these kind...of question proper to ask???? Please keep good manner and educate philipino more on how to welcome guest. The food are perfect!! Im asian coming with local friend. The food is well represent!! This how i would recommend how's the service it is. Hopefully it will help!More

We were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful sumptuous cuisine offered by this decidedly quaint but nostalgic restaurant. Food was freshly prepared and incredibly wonderful. So much so that we visited them twice in three days. Five stars.

We decided to dine with my sister who came for a visit and a friend of mine as it’s her last night in Dubai, we were so pissed when we entered no one greeted us and there’s a lot of crew standing at the door🙄....They pointed us to a table while the attendant is cleaning it and wondered because there’s a lot of vacant tables? No one approached us and gave the menu so we call one of the server as we don’t have idea About IRAQI foods. The whole environment is so unfriendly And unmannered!!!! Even when they are asking the orders to serving the foods it’s feels like we are in barbaric era, the foods are coming off from the plate and the water from the AC dropping from the ceiling 🤮😡, they saw it too but no one said sorry 😖. I think because we are Asians and they only serve their Arab nationalities !!!! Very disappointing, I will recommend SAMAD IrAqi resto if u want a better service and best food in town!More

I knew about Irqi food from a while back when one of my business suppliers came to town and he took me to a place in Dubai for an Iraqi speciality called "MasKouf" which is basically freshwater Fish cooked around an open fire. They have...the whole setup for the fish cooking on display which you can see from outside of the restaurant.There are some other pop up restaurants with a very familiar name in Dubai and I thought they were one and the same. However last time when I asked them about that they confirmed to me that they were the only Branch of the Original Brand from Iraq and the others are not real. So heres an interesting fact for you. I was attracted to this place for the fish primarily as I knew what it was but being someone who's eaten fish from the sea for most of his life freshwater fish is a different take. Its not bad at all but its a different taste. My Big surprise was the meat stuff. You have to go to this place for the fish PLUS the MEAT! the Iraqi Kebab is AWESOME! not good at all for people with bad cholesterol history :) and the Arayes is so good that sometimes I'm just craving to go there for the Arayes alone. I like the salad that you get as standard and the bread and the whole deal. Its not cheap but it doesnt break the bank at all for the quality you're getting. I can think of many many places which will charge you much more than this place and not even live up to half the quality that this place offers. If you love meat......close your eyes and just go for it......My best Picks are (Sounds like a standard choice but just try it and you'll be surprised) 1. Iraqi kebab 2. Arayes If you're not crazy about meat then......I dont know what you're doing reading this review :)More
