Time Out Says

While Nay Lounge promises a cavalcade of upbeat Lebanese entertainment – including dancers, musicians and singers – on our visit the place is near deserted, and we can feel the awkwardness ricocheting around the large Emirates Financial Towers dining room. It turns out that the show doesn’t start until 11pm. Rookie error.

Unfazed, we press on with the menu and tuck into the “hummus triple delight”, which offers a spin on the famous dish by infusing three different dollops of it with a trio of flavours.

It’s a creative idea, and colourfully presented, but the trademark nuttiness of the chickpeas is overwhelmed by the strong infusions of basil and red pepper.

More of a hit are the lamb chops, which are tender and served on a bed of coriander rice. But it’s not the meat that is most noteworthy (as delicious as it is) – the rice is so flavourful that we can’t resist asking for the recipe.

Midway through the meal a waiter brandishing a Japanese katana sword appears to slice a congratulatory cake for the next table, complete with flashing lights and pumping music. It’s a little unusual, but entertaining.

For desserts, don’t miss the melted chocolate brownie. It’s perfectly gooey on the inside while retaining an excellent crusty layer on top.

We’ve had better Lebanese food but for reasonably priced mezze in DIFC it’s not a bad spot to venture to.
