We had a shared starter for four which was excellent with all the usual ingredients and was a big portion so no real need for full main courses. I had the main course of the local fish which unexpectedly was served in batter with a mound of dark brown rice without any sauce which was dry and hard to eat.... More

This restaurant truly deserves a five star review. From the moment we walked in the service was exceptional, which only added to the overall amazing feel within the restaurant. Our expectations were again surpassed when the food came out. I got a Lebanese lamb dish and it was out of this world! Reasonable pricing as well. There is also a... More

This restaurant is inside the souq, the setup is amazing. its got a nice small outdoor arrangement facing the lake inside madinat. The decor is nice, the food is amazing, the drinks are good, the shisha is also great. Its a lovely place for a romantic dinner for 2. The biggest disappointment was that they did not have fresh breads... More

Great place to visit when in Dubai, little market, trips around Madinat on their boats, see the Burj Al Arab & take close up pictures while on the boat. Really a magical place to go. Enjoy food at one of their many restaurants or just a cuppa, nothing to much trouble.

We had a quick meal here as my baby was tired, they service was very quick. The food itself was average - wouldn't make a trip here but decent if you're in the Souk. The portions are very large - much larger than usual Lebanese servings

Had reasonable hopes for this place given the reviews. First - unreasonably expensive - which is alright if the food is good - but food was horrible - flavorless, no effort went into any of the recipes. Had lamb chops for $60 and grilled chicken for $50 - the grilled vegetable sides were - one small tomato and one burnt... More
