From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2008

After struggling to locate and remove the last fibres of meat from the stupendously tender lamb shoulder, you may try your hardest to work out what’s wrong.

The food is generously portioned and reasonably priced, the decor is tasteful and atmospheric, and the service is friendly and welcoming. So where are the miniscule helpings of overpriced finger food? Where are the arrogant waiters? And where are the ostentatious, glitzy kings of bling?

You swig your non-alcoholic champagne and demolish the delightful chocolate moelleux, which oozes its molten gooey extravagance into a gently softening scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

Then you realise what’s wrong; it’s the end of your meal. You’ll surely raise a glass to toast the brilliant Almaz by Momo.

Best Morrocean Tea in town! We had few birthday surprise parties there and it was super wonderful! Love most of the drinks, mezzah, and desserts there and also shisha but didnt like the moroccean foods much! But very nice place to chill in the afternoon!

Simply one of the best restaurants in Dubai. The food is amazing, always same standards of excellent quality. The Staff are so friendly & nice. The decor is lovely & music is great.

I have never been disappointed & have been going there regularly for the last 3 years. I don't know how anyone could ever give a bad review on Almaz - this place should win all the awards there are.

The iftar buffet in Ramadan is absolutely fantastic. Large variety, moroccan and middle eastern, best dessert and best salads, and home cooked tagines. Outside Ramadan? less fantastic, but good.

Love the food,absoluately love the food. Lamb does not get better than this. The portions are large. Ambience is perfect. Tucked away in the back of the Mall is just perfect. Great selection of food and never dissapoints. I've been there many times.

I have no regrets about the place none whatsoever the whole Nine yards.. Great job Almaz.. though my only concern is the young guy that was working at the reception.. Lorenzo if am not mistaken.. He knew how to charm the ladies.. Professional and wellcoming he was.. You honestly did loose a gem.. One in a million would be able to match up to his charisma.....
