Time Out Says

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
When we have visitors there are two things that sit firmly on top of our ‘to do’ list: show them the Dubai Fountain and eat great Lebanese food. A meal at Karam Beirut kills two birds with one stone. The in-mall restaurant feels surprisingly classy (given its proximity to a food court), what with tablecloths and smartly attired waiters. The food is consistently good and the view of the fountain one of the best in town.

Mezze here has always been satisfying – we love the well seasoned kebbeh and the deliciously smoky mutabbal but the pièce de résistance has to be the grills – shish taouk is of a melt in your mouth texture and the signature ‘kebab karam’ is a delicious study in ground lamb and pistachios. Our only complaint with the place is that the service can be a little haphazard when its busy (we prefer visiting for lunch for that reason – although that means the fountain isn’t running) and management has a tendency to shout at staff and look generally harried, although that does kind of add to the experience for a tourist...
