Mezza House is worth seeking out for outstanding Levantine cuisine. With both indoor and outdoor seating, the restaurant has a casual, neighbourly vibe and it’s staffed by some of Dubai’s most genuinely friendly waiters.
Your mind may boggle at such a fabulous array of dishes native to Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Palestine, but the waiters are more than happy to explain what each entails and recommend their favourites. Mezze staples are done extremely well – creamy houmous, hot Arabic bread, coarsely chopped parsley and halloumi cheese in the tabbouleh extra salad – and the specialties, even better.
If you want to order a Palestinian/Jordanian Mashawi main you need to phone and order it the day before. The mousahakan roll (pita bread topped with sautéed red onions, pine nuts and sumac and half a roasted chicken) is certainly worth the wait.
