Me and my girlfriend went there 3 times for our vacation of 6 days, because we fell in love with the authentic good and the great view towards the fountains. The food is an awesome example of arabic food. Super fresh salads, hummus to die for, raw meat dishes and great hookah. Definitely recommend!

The Abd el Wahab in Pier 7 is a splendid place with gorgeous seafood and fish. Waiters are extremely friendly, the only thing that can spoil your evening is a large noisy crowd sitting at a neighbouring table. But otherwise, you can be sure to have a splendid dinner at a fair price, considering the general level in Dubai.

The food was decent but not extraordinary and compensated by the perfect location next to the Dubai fountains at the Burj Kalifa. It's very popular so reservations are a must.

Recommended to my team for a business dinner but we were a bit disappointed. It's well located, easy to find and there are good views from a table on the outdoor section. The food selection is very good but I was not over impressed by the quality and taste. The service was quite poor, with a sort of smug attitude... More

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your feedback that you have shared on TripAdvisor. While we are happy to note your positive comments on our view, we are truly sorry that our food and service did not meet your expectations it pains us greatly to have even one guest leave the outlet with anything less than a positive impression...

Came here for dinner last week. Sat outside with beautiful views of the Burj Khalifa and the fountains. The restaurant was very busy but the service and food were really good. Honestly cannot remember what the bill came to! Try the tabullah salad, it's gorgeous. Really clean restaurant.

Food is secondary to the great views of the fountains. To get a seat next to the fountains you need to book a few days before hand so a little planning needed. Food is very good and the service is good but this place is packed one in one out so not the usual Dubai service but recommend

Went here for an Arabic dinner recommended by hotel concierge. The Location in the replica soukh next to the water fountain provides a nice setting, but only if seated on the terrace. Inside seating and decoration is very basic. We chose the set menu, which was quite tasty and there was plenty of it. The service was extremely poor, and... More

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.
