What sets Al Mayass apart is the staff and the interior decoration which gives the place a whole new ambience, relaxed, chic, intimate.
This is a traditional Lebanese-Armenian cuisine restaurant: authentic, full of flavours and fresh ingredients. I kept being surprised by the dishes that were brought to the table...a culinary experience and a discovery.

The menu was good with the classics prepared and presented well. We only ordered a selection of starters: hummus topped with pine nuts, potatoes with parsley, stuffed vine leaves topped with yougurt, Armenian salad, Manti, etc which was enough to share, as well as a wonderful orange and passion fruit cocktail which was fresh!
I hope it will follow the standard of the Al Mayass in Abu Dhabi.

The food was not that tasty, very ordinary and doesn't worth these expensive prices, the only two good things was the crew and the decorations, but this of course not enough, you go to restaurant to experience good taste, I will never go back there again and I advise everyone not to go unless you want to waste a lot of your money to eat very ordinary food

Just like Beirut restaurant, taste of food, atmosphere, it all reminds me of Beirut restaurants. Make sure you call earlier for reservation as they get booked so quickly ...
