From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011One of the many restaurants in the beautiful Souk Al Bahar, Abd El Wahab serves up Lebanese fare with less flair than you’d expect. Service is a little too laid-back for our liking and while the usual grills, hot and cold appetisers including houmous, mutabbal, kibbeh are all present and accounted for, the quality (and portion size) is just not what you’d expect for the price your paying.
For example, the mixed grill which costs over Dhs60, is a small plate containing shish taouk and fries, kebab halabi and hearty chunks of meat – a hungry man could easily wipe it all clean with ease, though those used to platters being big enough for two to share will be dissapointed. We also ordered the arayes kafta, which had moist, succulent meat, but was a little on the greasy side. Still, it tastes better than the mixed grill. There’s no doubt you’re paying a premium for views of the dancing Dubai Fountain but with so many other fantastic restaurants at Souk Al Bahar, we're not sure there'll be a next time.
