Perfect view of Dubai Creek w generous servings of well prepared food. Lamb kebab had approximately 1/2 pound of lamb w scegetables on side. Mortal dip w pita was silky smooth and Fatiha salad had wonderful dressing and was large enough for two. Highly recommend.

Located at the old Souk near the Abra water taxis this restaurant has terrace dining suspended above Dubai Creek.

Friendly, welcoming and nicely busy. Cold drinks and a variety of local food available. The mezze is excellent.

They also have private dining in the main building which was constructed in 1930.

Very reasonably priced, a must do stop off.

I have been here a couple of times before, each time the food has been good. The Juices are fresh and good too.
Only problem was the slow service. Takes a while to get things sometimes.
No alcohol served either which was dissapointing.

Went there last week for a meal with family and friends, The drinks took a while despite us being the only people there and they had left out a few drinks the food was tasteless.My daughter got chicken nuggets and chips I tried one and a long piece of hair came out of it. She than threw up when we got home. The lady serving us was quiet rude when one of us asked for a vanilla milkshake. Wouldn’t ever go there again.

I have dined here several times and I have never been disappointed. The offer fresh , in season fish cooked to perfection. The menu has Iranian, Arabic and some continental dishes. The staff are very responsive and will recommend dishes that they know are very good. Have the Shrimp in cream sauce... have the Grilled Sea Bass with Lemon sauce. The restaurant is off the souq and can be difficult to find. The dining area is suspended over Dubai Creek and the passing ships and Abras make for a restful dining experience.
