“Great atmosphere, food, and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

This was an amazing experience.

Center of hectic Souq Waqif, you walk through a stylish, quiet downstairs (or can eat down there) to get upstairs for a window view overlooking the market center and can watch the large video screen of middle eastern music videos. This plus the Hukas all around while sitting on comfortable couches makes for a truly relaxing experience. The wooden architecture upstairs is impressive.

Push a button and your waiter comes immediately-- no kidding! Plenty of authentic Syrian and Lebanese food on the menu. The Kibbe (lamb) with yogurt was incredible and portions were large. Hummus is fantastic.

Prices were very reasonable.

“Average food with loud indoors music”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We went there on a business dinner , we were not able to get the outdoors , so forced to seat indoors , the live music was very loud you cant hear what you saying , the food is average , prices are acceptable . its better to seat outdoors , so you can enjoy the Shisha and nice breeze in the winter time .

“Horrible Service, Rude waiters, not professional, food is good, prefer local clients on expats!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

You have to ask for your tissues even! Horrible service, and they treat you in a bad way if you don't dress like locals!
They ask you if you wanna have a meal or just coffee. If it's only friends gathering for coffee, they lie and say they have no tables!!
This happened 3 times with me!! I will never visit that place!!! U can get a better service and great food at any other restaurant in souk wakif!

“Slow but worth the wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We arrived and were seated upstairs we ordered and enjoyed some excellent starters (the lambs tongue was very good, and the eggplant smoky and delicious... we then waited almost an hour for our main dishes. After three reminders and some very creative excuses from our waiter, we finally gave up and went to leave. The manager caught us, insisted we return where he served us our main courses without charge, and then a complimentary platter of fruit to finish.
