“Excellent Arabic Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

This is one of my favorit Arabic restaurants in Dubai. The food is great and the service is fast. I suggest you try to est various cold & hot mezzas and finish with a platter of mix grill or deboned grilled chicken. I recommend this restaurant when you want to invite family or friends since the price is very reasonable.

“By far the best Lebanese restaurant in the UAE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is by far the best Lebanese restaurant in the UAE where the food quality is superbly consistent with great value for money. The other advantage al HALLAB has is its locations, with branches in the biggest two malls in Dubai. Must try the cold and hot mezeh

“Tasty - Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

My wife and I spotted Al Hallab on a recent visit to Dubai at the Mall of the Emirites. Decor was attractive (that was the hook), extensive menu and the place looked pretty busy.

Service was good and the meals arrived pretty promptly (except for the chicken wings - but that was a good thing because we knew they were fresh).

Mall of the Emirites and Al Hallab - a good combination!
