Description: "There is no love sincerer than the love of food". Tucked away at the Sheraton Corniche Abu Dhabi, an institution in capital hotels, Al Mayass delivers Old World splendor in a relaxed setting. Though a newly opened venue to Abu Dhabi diners, this veteran restaurant has been setting the standards in traditional Lebanese-Armenian Cuisine in the heart of Lebanon for over a decade. A palate of warm earth tones accented with beautifully crafted tiles and soft lighting, the decor is as welcoming as the knowledgeable and friendly staff. Intimate and inviting, this eatery will make you wish you had an Armenian grandmother serving up memories on a platter.

It is a hidden gem within Sheraton Corniche, Abu Dhabi. It is our first time, so we opt for the following noms:

• Batata Harra, Lahm BI Arjeen, Shish Tawouk

They are providing a complimentary Kuboos and salad. They're so sweet that they've also given us an Armenian Salad - Eech as a compliment of the house. How I wish they have some room for dessert but overall it is an awesome experience.

We also love the interior as there's a smoking area for sisha. Staffs are attentive and helpful.

Food is really tasty and we got a lot of complementary stuff (Bread, fruit, some small mezzes, ...). Nice and friendly staff.

not sure whether the staff could see that we were new to the place and asked for a table in the block inside which has a good view and sheesha or what...but they were quite snobbish with us.
Sheesha was amazing, beiruti hummus is a must have here, view is also good, people around are very good and most look like regulars there. Its like a hidden place for someone new in abu dhabi, unless someone takes you there

We came here for our anniversary dinner. We were a little apprehensive if it was a conservative place but what we saw was a relaxed atmosphere. We got a table next to the sea (we had reserved beforehand).
The place specializes in Middle-Eastern food which we quite liked. All the dishes were delicious. The sheesha & drinks were good too. Full marks for the service! Since it's a part of the Sheraton hotel, it was on the slightly expensive side, but worth it.
We found getting to the restaurant tricky but maybe we did not know the right route.
