I was visiting Dubai for the first time and found the restaurant in the Dubai Mall in the same area as a slew of American restaurants like Red Lobster, California Pizza, Kitchen, and Five Guys. I can get that stuff anytime in the States. I wanted something local, and this place did not disappoint. I chose a table outside which... More

We went there after a visit to the Burj Khalifa with a plan to watch the Dubai fountains as this restaurant perfectly overlooks them. We couldn't get a table outside though as there was a long wait for it, but they were nice enough to give us a table with a good view, only to find out the fountains were... More

A wonderful display of Lebanese food and desserts awaits you when you enter this restaurant. Located in the lower ground floor of the Dubai Mall, it is also an excellent location to see the Dubai fountain display. Houmos with meat, tabboulah, kibbe, fattoush, grilled halloumi. This restaurant has it all and the standards are high. Get there early evening if... More

We were two females that visited this restaurant. We were not allowed to sit in the front row with the good view. We had to wait extremely long time to get one soup and one salad. People who arrived much later than us had finished their meal when our food arrived. It was good, but not that good that it... More

The hummus, mutabel , taboulleh and fatoush here are unmatched! The tell-tale of great food as drab as cold mezze is in the details - the olive oil they pour on the dips is worth raving, as is the light-as-cloud, fresh, piping hot bread they serve. The muhamarra is great, no complaints, but have eaten better. The taboulleh and the... More

Worth the wait. Perfect dessert (see picture). Food is very good (not great). Will visit again. Excellent option to enjoy the Dubai fountain and have a Téa with dessert.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
