Fantastic food

We order, hummus, eggplant salad, kibe, lamb chops, green salad and all of it was amazing. Excelent service. Make sure to do a reservation or come early, the restaurant is always full.

So you want spectacle and theatre. You want authentic Levantine dishes. You want spirited service. Put them together and you have Abd El Wahab. With the charismatic Bassam floor-managing your experience, it's a great introduction to the buzz of Dubai. Yes, it's a bit noisy and if you want to focus only on the food, there are other options.
But locals come back on a regular basis because the starter selection is excellent and the grilled meats delicious. Worth booking ahead.

The food is very average for their prices but we had no problem with the level of service.
The main reason I guess people come here is for the views of the fountain out on the veranda which is were we sat. It was very nice to look at but that was it, nothing spectacular to be honest.

This is sits directly in front of the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain, and offers an absolutely breath taking view. With the water fountain running periodically, you can’t ask for a better seating and show.

We came here for the sheesha (hookah), and left very happy with the service. The view was the cherry on a sundae; it really made our experience so much better.

I don’t think anyone can find a better place to sit and relax with good hookah in Dubai than a spot like this.

Been to this restaurant in the past a few times but this time round it was a disgrace!! The food came out cold and mean actually hard and cold like some left overs, then when I complained they said they will serve the whole meal over again but only bought out half the meal and then refused to acknowledge that the complete meal had not been replaced. My two children were not able to eat anything as the food was too hard!! Definitely avoid this place it’s not what it used to be, the food is bland and the customer service is just appalling.
