Reem Al Bawadi

MENA

Reem Al Bawadi
This restaurant is a popular choice with locals and expats and is a failsafe for great-tasting Lebanese fare. Expect delicious twists on classic dishes, such as the hummus triple delight containing hummus with basil, olives and oregano, giving it a distinct Mediterranean flavour. The shamandar wa jabneh salad with chunks of beetroot, feta cheese and a zingy orange and Dijon mustard dressing provides a fresh, light and delicious accompaniment to the mixed grill. Meats have an appealing chargrilled flavour and are subtly spiced in the traditional style. Staff are attentive and aim to please, but they would benefit from a little more knowledge of the menu. Recommendations would be welcomed, though staff often seem bemused by the long and varied menu.
Overall, though, for decent food at a good price in a relaxed setting, Take your pick of branches, Reem is unlikely to let you down. Reem Al Bawadi

    I went to the restaurant about 2 days ago and i came back with an awful experience by Iftar buffet. Surprisingly, there was no any tea to be served at the beginning of the Iftar so we incurred 18 Dhs. per tea cup extra while it MUST be included on the open buffet costing 130 Dhs. per person.
    Moreover, the iftar buffet closes at 8:30 which is so unfair.
    The staff are un-attentive and to wrap it up, The Iftar buffet is sooo worthless.

    BAD BAD BAD SERVICE!!! You have to ask to make an order, you have to ask for the bill , you have to ask for sauces to complement your food. Staff not smiling, staff not following up, many flies around. I will not recommend this to anyone!

    Zucchini is absolutely right. They do push you to order far too much food. For a start, while the Hostess is seating you, a waiter will open a large bottle of water and pour it for you before you know what's happening. They do it as if it's on the house - without asking whether you want it chilled or not or whether you need a smaller bottle or whether you need water at all - but it ends up on your bill at 9 dirhams. Then they push their 25 dirham, awfully sweet juices, a Sheesha and about three times the amount of food that you could possibly eat. The waiters are probably on a commission. Hence the high pressure, virtually intimidating push to order more than what you can eat. There is so much food wasted on most tables and it can't be that they don’t know how much a person can eat.

    Service is very quick but far too many waiters walking around and giving you the thumbs up – probably for their success in pushing upwards of 150 dirhams per head . The whole place is covered in garish plastic wine leaves and dusty kilims. Also take care to keep your feet tucked away from the hot metal buckets carelessly swung around by the Shesha minders

    Surprisingly overrated. This place, while frequented by a lot of people is purely because of its "brand value". From a true Shisha fan, this is probably one of the WORST shisha places in Dubai, infact I've been to some pretty shady places that make better shisha.

    As for the food, not a bad try, but definitely not worth going back to. Very average, and very slow service. Most disappointingly very discriminating as well. They serve you only if you have women, else good luck getting any attention. They gladly forget your order and try to shove you out indirectly if you don't "order enough"

    Being in Dubai for over 22 years, this is definitely one of the MOST over rated places in Dubai
