“One of the best Lebanese cuisines in dubai”
Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

A very nice and organized restaurant that is always busy with Lebanese cuisine lovers, mainly grills and mezzeh. At al Halla/ Garhoud branch you dine in style and enjoy the mix grills, vine leaves and the best chicken lever dish in town before you endulge your tasting buds with good traditional Lebanese sweets and desserts.

Prior booking is highly advisable specially for more than two diners.

“One of the few remaining with real authentic taste”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Arabic/lebanese food at its original taste. very basic , but capturing the taste of how the food should be.
some dishes can be really unnecessarily oily. Yet the taste is good.
sweets are good. but not like the one from Al Hallab in Lebanon
prices are affordable, tends to be cheaper than similar restaurants.
