Time Out Says
A no-frills but typically bustling restaurant facing busy Sheikh Zayed Road, Al Safadi has long been popular for its reliable Lebanese fare and patio serving shisha. Service is infamously abysmal, but it doesn’t seem to stop the punters pouring in, and even late on a Tuesday night, you’re likely to spot nearby residents, groups of friends and sweaty amateur basketball teams tucking into piles of meaty shawarmas, crisp falafel and mountains of freshly chopped tabbouleh. If you’re food’s taking a while, patience is not necessarily a virtue – it’s not unheard of for the staff to have forgotten about an order, so best to keep asking or risk not getting fed. Many stop in here solely for the people-watching opportunities and a slice of street life, away from the more sanitised likes of The Beach and JBR – just make sure you’ve got one of Safadi’s famous juices in your hand while you’re doing it. You want to look the part, don’t you?
