The Shisha is great, just make sure you don't have to sing or have a conference the next day, your voice will be killed.
Service is great, food fresh and tasty, only thing missing was a good beer.

If you hate the smell of shisha, don't go here! But, if you are OK to eat with the sweet smell of apple, grape and mint in the air - and you like Arabic food, then this is the perfect combination! My 'local' ('cos this is a chain) is the new RAB in Dubai Marina, and apart from their recent change to waitresses wearing witches hats, I have enjoyed every visit. And they deliver too! :) I think that this restaurant is a must for visitors to the Middle East if they really want to grasp the more traditional atmosphere, while experiencing the highest standards of food, environment and service. Mine's a grape with mint special! ;)

We had lunch in the beach road restaurant. Great atmosphere with both inside and outdoor seating. Service was a bit slow but the food was tasty and fresh. Most of the other customers were smoking, some whilst eating so be aware that you will almost certainly have to put up with smoke.

Fairly nice location, but that's about it. The baba ganouj was nice and smokey, but the the lamb was tough and overcooked. The service was ok. All the TV screens spoil any ambiance. Far too many far better places for half the price nearby.

Never tasted such great food even in my country. Delicous, fresh and light. Service is also great and friendly.
