Amazing food! Order as many different things as you can! I can't think of anything I'd change about this restaurant. Quirky, friendly service from the very smartly dressed waiters. Delicious, fresh food. Super healthy. Great desserts. AMAZING garlic paste - the best I've ever had. Bursting with flavour, smooth and delicious. Bottomless bread baskets (not that I could get through more than two or three of them). Everything awesome!

Many years ago, my best friend, who happens to be an Iraqi/Lebanese (and knows her Lebanese cuisine) took me there saying it's the best Lebanese food in Dubai.

And she was proven right! After that first time, I've been many times to both branches and Al Hallab has constantly delivered excellent food (try chicken livers in pomegranate sauce, rocket+tomato salad and their grill) and great service. And don't get me started on the piping hot, fresh from oven Arabic flat bread!

Garhoud branch has a bit more ambiance (as it's stand alone restaurant, not just one in the row in the mall as the other one is) , however I live close to Mall of Emirates, so I go more often to this branch. For Garhoud branch, it's better to reserve a table beforehand, especially for Thursday dinner or Friday (weekend).

In short, it's not your romance-your-other-half spot, however it still is (and consistently have been) the place to have some wonderful Lebanese food!

This review is for the Al-Gharroud branch, not the Dubai mall one.
Dinner for 10 guests. Excellent food. Superb service. Great location for a big group of people.
The lamb and chicken dishes are great. In fact every dish we ordered was fantastic. They have a special dates drink which is superb too. They are supposedly famous for sweets and desserts. But by the time we had our dinner we were too stuffed to eat further, next time perhaps.
Do not expect a lavish setting but do expect mouth watering Lebanese food and warm service.

They are fast, polite, they serve great food at reasonably prices. And I really liked that they offer complementary water.
