The Food was delicious, we loved the traditional Arabian food. Me and my mother admire the Arab culture a lot and Dubai is always our favourite place to visit, being our 3rd time here. Now that we know about Arabian Tea House we will be...sure to return when we come back to Dubai. Big thank you to your lovely and friendly team. Carine was a big help and was so polite and made us feel comfortable and at home.More

One of my favorite places to eat in Dubai. I have visited Dubai many times over the years. One thing that has stayed consistent during my travels is making a stop at the Arabian Tea House. This restaurant is good for both tourists that want...to try Arabic food for the first time and people that have eaten Arabic food before. The humas, lamb, rice, and leqaimat are very good. I took my parents here during their first visit to Dubai. They are normally very picky eaters that do not like trying new things. They loved the place and made me take them back a second time before we left. I highly recommend trying the Arabian Tea House. Five star restaurant.More

Dinner at the Arabian Tea House provided us with a memorable final night in Dubai after checking out of our hotel, having been staying half board during the trip. We picked it after reading the great reviews here on Tripadvisor and weren’t disappointed. Always a...challenge finding somewhere everyone is happy with when one of the family is vegan but they had a small number of good vegan options on the menu. It’s a really atmospheric place in the heart of Bur Dubai, with a thatched roof, Arabian decor and super friendly staff. The food and service were great and only complaint, if you can even call it that, was the food came out so fast that we were still eating our starter when the main courses arrived. It would have been nice to take our time and enjoy the food and atmosphere some more. We followed up with a walk over to Dubai Creek, 10 mins away, and an Abra crossing to see the area by night. Highly recommended.More

My friends and I had the treat to enjoy a morning tea and cake moment at the Arabian Tea House. We were seated in a quaint courtyard. The service was attentive; we were never left for wanting. The tea, date cake, and assorted sweets were...all divine. I definitely recommend stopping by for an authentic coffee/tea or meal!More
