The place is quite far away and I guess those who get there get well compensated by the atmosphere. The staff is really friendly and fast to respond. The food is typical iranian. I can't judge how authentic it is, but provided this is what...you expect, it is really nice.More

Samad has been one of our favorite restaurants to visit in Dubai on every visit. This is the original branch and more relaxed than Jumeirah. The food is always fresh and taste and portion sizes are huge. Iraqi restaurants in Dubai are a bit more...pricey than Lebanese counterparts. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The later you go, the less likely you will have a choice in the daily vegetable stews or dishes of the day. Nonetheless the variety of choice is great: good Iraqi food.More

The best place to eat in Dubai !!!! the food is delicious and tasty, you won't starve and you may have leftover that you can pack, the decoration is a dream based on the 1001 nights, the bill is not killing you at the end....They give some starters for free and at the end Iraqi tea. This is amazing. This is one of the best place I have ever eaten in and I have visited more than 40 countries so far. As expat in Dubai I go there maybe once every 2 months.More

I was surprised with everything from the beginning. The restaurant is big with windows from down to the ciling and it has 2 floors. Everything is decorated in Arabic style. Food is nice, nothing special regarding the presentation, but good and fresh taste. Size of...portion is impressed me)))) I could not finish it. Our server was very polite. In general I would recommend this restaurant at lwast to try something different.More

Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane
highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the
UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in
Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road.
Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive
down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa
after another. Originally residential-only
neighborhoods, they are now also home to an array of
