Description: In its picturesque beachside setting, Al Khaima is the perfect spot to enjoy warm Arabic hospitality and the traditional flavours of Middle East cuisine.Relaxing on canopied sofas beneath the stars, to the sound of traditional live entertainment, diners at Al Khaima have a treat in store. It begins with a wide selection of mouthwatering mezzeh, to be followed by freshly-grilled fish, lamb or kebabs, all prepared in classic Arabic style. A beautiful setting, delicious cuisine and a joyous atmosphere: the perfect Middle Eastern evening. WE ARE TAKING A SHORT SUMMER REST FROM 6TH JUNE 2016 AND WILL RE-OPEN ON 24TH OF AUGUST 2016 TO WELCOME YOU BACK WITH ZEST.

“A nice authentic feel about the restaurant”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We were staying at Le Royal Meridien and have eaten here a few times before with family or as a couple.
The food is quite authentic Arabic and the meze starters are fantastic but really filling so best for a group of you rather than just two persons.
The lamb and chicken kebabs were plentiful and again maybe best for two to share if you are not big eaters.
A good spot to try a Sheesha pipe which costs around £10 for all the evening and is constantly topped up.
All in all it can be a fun night out.
As always in Dubai alcohol comes at a premium price.

“Had relaxed Arabic style meal”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We have stayed at Le Royal Meridien Hotel a few times now and eaten at the Arabic restaurant at least 4 times before.
If you like the Houmos and the traditional dip style starters this is for you and to finish I suggest a skewer of Lamb or chicken.
The staff on this occasion seemed to be training but the service was attentive and not intrusive.
Overall a good night out with some Arabic music/singer and Sheesha pipes if that is what you like!

“Brings a little authenticity”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

A great place to bring visitors on a Thursday as they have live dancing. The meat dishes are served alone but are so succulent and tasty it is a great choice. Alongside the outdor setting, a must for early winter months

“Want traditional Middle eastern food, this is the place”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

and served in style. The location is within Le royal meridean down near the marina. located about half distance between hotel and beach, surround by trees, with shades and for night heaters (it gets cold occassionally in the winter months).
The staff are knowledgeable, well trained and managed by a very able and enormoulsy welcoming manager.
The food is superb, no otther discription fits, the bbq meats done to perfection, a good selection of wines. music and entertaintment after about 2100 hours. 2 people can eat to bursting for about $130, but it is the memory, the atmosphere and the food you will remember, not the bill
