Party of four went here midweek mainly as we wanted to try a different Lebanese Restaurant and make use of Entertainment vouchers.
Well, the food was okay. Portion sizes generous, but not the taste experience we expected considering the prices.
On the other hand the service was good and we never felt interrupted or waiting.
We had a live music, but unfortunately no belly dancing.

I considered two stars, but that would probably be a bit harsh.

has a belly dancer show as well as a good collection of food, although the taste is not something special, but if you are looking for something arabic in the yas area, then give this place a visit

My wife and I were made very welcome by George, the manager at Barouk. This was our first Lebanese meal and we did not know what to expect. Our lasting impression is of the huge quantities we were served from the fixed menu. There were 10 starters in all - 8 cold, 2 hot - and they completely covered the table for four at which my wife and I sat (on our own). This was followed by a main course and dessert that were more normal in size, and then, as, we finished the meal, the band began to play and a belly dancer began her act.

The band was loud (just as George had warned in advance it would be) and we didn't want to watch the belly dancer so we moved outside. Though the pool bar was closed, Barouk happily served us coffee outside at the seating around the pool bar and from this distance we enjoyed the floor show more as atmospheric background music.

I can't say if this was good or great Lebanese food as it our only experience of it. I can say that quantities were generous, we had a great time and we'd happily recommend the experience.
