We stayed a few days at Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa which is truly a nice hotel, perhaps too expensive but that was known to us before. Great hotel and fantastic staff. However we feel we got duped when we asked the receptions desk to book us a table at the Arabian restaurant Al Hadheerah. We were NOT... More

The place to get immersed in traditional Arabic culture. It's always wonderful to break away from the hustle and bustle of life and El Hadeerah is the perfect place to do so in Dubai. The food is always of high quality and offers a diverse and generous selection of various Arabic cuisines (Emirati, Lebanese, Moroccan etc). The highlight is the... More

It's quite easy in Dubai to get swallowed into a lot of cheesy touristy attractions. However, Al Hadheerah offered a sophisticated blend of superb food and entertainment which was enjoyable for all the family. The presentation and the quality of the buffet were just fabulous and I would say that It's one of my favourite buffets in Dubai. I've lived... More

If you want a taste of Dubai history, with some culture and good food thrown in then this is the place to visit! Live entertainment throughout the evening, food buffet which serves THE best BBQ prawns, AND unlimited soft drinks - win, win!

Place during dinner time is for sure very crowded yet its at least 1-hour drive from city centre. Food is strictly okayish and the performance including belly dancing is below average. Overall a disappointing experience.

Description
Experience 1001 Arabian Nights... A magical Arabian celebration awaits you as the sun sets on Al Hadheerah, amidst the enchanting desert dunes of Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa. Immerse yourself in Arabian culture within the walls of a traditional fort where you will witness a dazzling falconry display, camel caravan, horse show as well as Tanoura dancer. Be entertained throughout the evening as mesmerising dancers weave their magic beneath the stars to the sounds of a live band. There is also no mistaking the mouth-watering aroma of Arabic cuisine as it drifts from the live cooking stations, wood-fired ovens and spit roasts. Al Hadheerah is so much more than a restaurant, it is an incredible event that you have to witness.
