We visited the Address Hotel Branch for the first time! Of course the view outdoor is much nice than the other branch and with that view and location, price is quite fair and vibe is great! With the views of the Burj and the music...played, the yummy taste of food just complements it beautifully. The fish is super soft, melts in your mouth. Same goes for the shoulder meat!!! Rice plate included a variety, and the Dolma dish tasted more like the Persian one, that also very tasty.More

First time ever experience an Iraqi restaurant. Like almost everything in Dubai, the service was excellent and quick. We started with a complimentary lentil soup with cabbages and Maanam, followed by hummus with shawarma meat, Iraqi mixed grill, and kunafa. What can I say? The...food was delicious and it was good that for the 2 of us, we only ordered 1 portion of each great dish. The restaurant is situated at a small lake at the foot of the Burj Khalifa and so sitting outside you have an amazing view at the tower. What a location to have an absolutely fabulous meal. I can strongly recommend this place to everyone looking for a great dinner at an extremely scenic location.More

This branch disappointed me so much. Out order have homus and moutabal and both was normal. Dolma was good and delicious. Beef shawerma wasn’t tasty at all. Kitchen door was broken and noisy when they use it. Service was good in general but place was...overpriced.More

We went to Al Iraqi downtown, after looking for the entrance for 15 min, as there is some construction work going on. When we arrived the head waiter dropped the menus on a table, didn't look at us and left. I wanted to leave but...my friends were cool. We ordered all the usual Hummus, Baba Ghanoush, Kubbah Mousil, mixed grill Hamour on oven, and different drinks. The waiters were looking at us almost aggressively and were dropping their cutlery on a large storage furniture with a lot of noise, they seems to be unhappy to work there. Bad lunch, bad atmosphere.More

The food was amazing here especially the charcoal grilled sea bass and the lentil soup. Definitely worth going to for a superb taste of Iraqi food. The service staff was also very helpful and gracious.

What a gem of a restaurant and definitely worth a visit! The surroundings are lovely, the food is amazing and the staff are wonderful without being overly attentive. My partner had been here before and had the fish which he raved about so this time...we had the maklouba which was heavenly and definitely reminded me of Iraq where I worked for many years. portions are huge so beware but can't fault the place, the food or the staff! Will be back again!!More
