This non-descript Lebanese restaurant by the name of Cedar Tree, is an ‘authentic Lebanese restaurant’ that serves, well, authentic Lebanese cuisine (ignoring the smattering of hotdogs and other seemingly un-Lebanese dishes). The warak enab (tomato wrapped in vine leaf) offers respite to the dry, wholly unappetising bread served beforehand, while specials such as sayadieh bi samak represent welcome originality to the menu – three plump dumplings arranged neatly alongside a neat pile of rice with sesame seeds and crispy caramelised onions. Though dishes are abundant in flavour, they have been known to be served lukewarm. However, go on a good day and you could do far worse than a lunchtime stop at Cedar Tree.

The food is below average. When asked a waitress about one of the dishes, she had no idea what it was made with. Even the coffee was bad.
For the same price there are so many better Lebanese restaurants in Dubai Marina.

They really don't know how to pick up their phone at the motor city location.

My first experience at Cedar tree was at Motor City. The food is always fresh and delicious. I regularly order take away daily dishes, it reminds me of my mom’s cooking ! Their mixed grills and other mezzas are always succulent.
Last week I went to their outlet at Marina View with friends, and it was sure the same genuine flavor.
