Time Out Says

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010
A perennial lunchtime favourite with Garhoud nine-to-fivers, this Lebanese standby serves some of the best Arabic food in town. Granted, the atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired – the space is essentially a large cafeteria – but every item on the menu is made with an extra level of care. Fattoush is given spark with the use of fresh herbs, and sesame-inflected balls of falafel find the perfect balance between a crisp exterior and a soft, giving interior. The bread, dusted with hints of cinnamon, is fresh baked, and a far cry from the limp, packaged pitas that are served in many of the city’s other established eateries. To boot, it’s exceedingly reasonable. If you order wisely, it’s quite possible for a large group to fill up on Dhs30 each. The baklava is also sublime, and we highly recommend bringing home a batch for relatives abroad.
