First up, let me say that that this is a nice chilled out place to have dinner, and the staff were nice - if a little over the top. They were happy to take back a dish we complained about and not to charge for it, and even presented us with a new offering without being asked (even though that was awful too).
The problem was the food. The Shish Tawouk came out bland and chewy, and it felt a bit like they had cooked the chicken earlier and then given it a quick blast on the coals after I ordered it. It was pretty awful. I've had Shish Tawouk's all over Dubai and this was easily the worst, and also the most expensive... We got the garlic mushrooms and they had clearly come out of a can, they were horrible and we had to send them back. The grilled haloumi was nice, but hell, it's grilled haloumi. You'd have to be an idiot to mess that up.
The buffet was a bit rubbish, and to clear up the above review, it only covers starters (which were good) and a miserable array of 'deserts' which were either dry or greasy and generally inedible. You pay 129 dhs for that, and then have to buy your main course seperately - which is another 60 - 100 per person. It adds up.
Generally, I think you'd be silly to pay five times as much for the below average food in this restaurant than you would for, say, Al Hallab, just for some pretty lighting and a nice atmosphere. There are hundreds of good Arabic restaurants in this city, and I would not come back to this one.
