Al Safadi

Traditional, authentic Lebanese cooking in a family-centric setting

Time Out Says

If Dubai is anything, it is absolutely not short of restaurants flying the flag for Lebanese cuisine.

While country-proud Lebanese residents of Dubai might tell you that nothing lives up to the places back home, for those seeking an introduction to Levant cuisine, or somewhere to call their go-to, Al Safadi is the place.

No frills, no modernisation – there are now four Al Safadi restaurants dotted around Dubai, and each of them serve authentic Lebanese food without interpretation. And, crucially, with freshly baked bread served regularly to the table.

It also caters to every meal of the day. Breakfast includes creamy fatteh and hearty manakish, plus scrambled eggs with the likes of rich, savoury makanek.

Come lunch or dinner, the salads are fresh and well sized for sharing – and if you’re not sharing, you’re not doing a Lebanese meal as it was intended. Creamy hummus, tangy chicken livers and salty shanklish lead into fish sayadiyah with buttery rice, and wonderfully smoky, well-made grills.

Al Safadi restaurants are, at heart, casual, family-orientated restaurants serving real, crowd-pleasing Lebanese cooking. There are few better places in town for a first-timer, or long-timer lover of Levantine cuisine.
