I came here with my family and had the most amazing food for a very affordable price (around 400 for 5 people). All the dishes were excellent except for the aubergine dish which was burnt and took away all of the flavors. Apart from that, everything was delicious. I recommend the hummus and the falafels highly! will definitely come again!

Interesting menu of many local choices.

Everything we chose was good, but the lamb cutlets were particularly nice.

There's a seating area outside (still under A/C) that's nice for families.

Good value, but not cheap - Recommended.

We had only drinks and the lemon mint juice was very delicious. It is located at the entrance of Ayla Bawadi Hotel and has a lot of nice decorations.

First I would like to clarify that the review i am writing is based on Zaytinya Abudhabi Branch ( al seef village mall). I am typing my review here as i could not find the abudhabi branch on Trip advisor. So my experience starts like this. I made reservations for 2 people for iftar. When i arrived, i was pointed to my table, but i couldnt go sit there because there was a customer already seated. The waitress asked me to wait (standing) until he leaves because he is here for takeaway. My question is why couldnt she ask him to go sit elsewhere or ask me to be seated while waiting for his highness to leave.
Secondly, While the appetizers were placed on the table, the mains were on buffet. By the time i got to the buffet, there was barely any food left(most left empty or just one piece left). They did not bother to refill. So value for money A BIG FAT ZERO.

The staff were attentive, filling my glass with water whenever it got empty.

My advice would be to go to the restuarant when its not Buffet.

Regards,
Hasinah Abdalla
