Zahr El-Laymoun

MENA

  • Zahr El-Laymoun
Filled with hanging greenery, plant pots, watering cans, flowery cushions and mini wooden benches, Zahr El Laymoun looks and feels like something akin to a quaint country cottage – which makes for a nice, if unexpected, contrast to surrounding Souk Al Bahar. Pull up a chair outdoors on the terrace that just about overlooks The Dubai Fountain, or grab one of only about ten tables indoors, and then tuck into all manner of Lebanese and Levantine dishes on a menu that leans towards healthy eating. While deep-fried French fries tend to be the accompanying side of choice at many similar restaurants, here it’s all about oil-free oven baked or grilled potatoes, and although the menu doesn’t steer too far from classic regional favourites, it all tastes that little bit fresher and more wholesome than usual. The salads, in particular, are highly recommended, but everything we’ve tried has been decent. It is pricier than you’d expect, however, so all this goodness does come at a cost. Zahr El-Laymoun

    Worst service, took them ages to take our order. The food was bad, the shawarma platter was very disappointing.

    I recently went to this very good Lebanese restaurant and i found the food to be very well prepared, very tasty and accompanied by a good and attentive service. The setting is really relaxing and i truly enjoyed my experience.
    The home made lemonades were to die for and special note go to the Hummus and kebabs...Delicious. I recommend this venue for lunch or dinner anytime.

    suprisingly i went to this restaurant in dubai mall before couple of years and the food tasted good. so this Rmadan, i took the kids and we went to their branch in sharjah.. and they said it is set menu 3 dishes only to choose from. the food had no taste at all...no spices no salt nothing at all...the bread is cold and not fresh. so i decided to order shawerma from the menu...and it was burned and old...it was disappointing.

    Went for iftar with 2 friends. The service was great our waitress was knowledgeable and explained the dished to us. The mezzas we had before the main course were very filling and delicious, we almost did not have the main course but tried as well, also very nice and then came dessert, each dessert had a subtle taste of rose water. Will definitely go back. We sat outside and enjoyed the warm air and a bit of the fountain show.
