I love Jumeriah group, I love Zabeel Saray and I used to Lalezar restaurant. I used to be one of the best Authentic Turkish Restaurant anywhere, and I use it for special occasions with special guests.

This restaurant has a beautiful classic Ottoman design. While we were waiting for our food, the Executive Chef for the entire Jumeirah Zabeel Saray Hotel, Musabbeh Al Kaabi, came to our table and introduced himself. We were very privileged to meet him. I say privileged because I later found out that he is a high profile celebrity chef, particularly in... More

We ate here as the Indian was fully booked. The decor is really good, even a fountain in the middle. It was a Friday evening and it was really quiet. The service was really disjointed. Unlike any other Jumeriah restaurant we have visited, I don't know if new staff where maybe getting trained or something. However the food was really... More

This restaurant was the worst we went to do. I ordered a sprite and there appeared to be something oval shaped fizzing in the bottom. When I asked the waiter he acted like he could see nothing and flat out denied it. The food portions were massive and too much the flavour combinations were odd and the food didn't taste... More

We had not booked as we weren't staying on Dubai for long! We turned up and Sameh informed us that it was quite busy and that perhaps to book for tomorrow night - we actually were flying out that night! He said we must eat here and he would find a table! Nothing was an issue. I am gluten Intollerant.... More

Experience the true taste of heritage at Dubai's first Anatolian restaurant. As you enter, you can't help but marvel at the intricate interior, where every detail from the firewood furnace to the stained-glass chandelier, evokes the spirit of the majestic Ottoman Era. Equally impressive is the stunning view from the terrace, where you can gaze upon the iconic Palm Jumeirah and lanscaped gardens. An authentic culinary journey awaits as you explore an array of Turkish cuisine complemented by cellared beverages from the hills of Antalaya, traditional Samovar-brewed tea and Turkish coffee.
