Where to eat Lebanese food in Dubai: The Best Restaurants and Bars

December 5, 2019 Marianna Hollaway

Reviews on Lebanese food in Dubai, Emirate of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Forty years ago Dubai was a small desert town, isolated from the world and considered a “hardship posting” for those who were sent there on business. Fast-forward in time and it’s sometimes hard to imagine that this dynamic and world-famous city was ever once just sand. Glittering skyscrapers, a 12-lane highway, the world’s biggest, fastest, best. But that’s the beauty of the city: scratch its shiny surface and the Arab heritage and hospitality is still there. Old souks, wind towers, and forts are nestled adjacent to the monuments of modernity. With 200 nationalities living and working peacefully alongside one another, Dubai is a truly global city with a huge heart.

This feels harsh already (score of 3/5) ... but needs to be said... The good news -Staff genuinely caring Band excellent - really very good Food tasty Setting comfy and relaxed The bad news - The range of food was limited compared to other Dubai brunches The band was so very loud that we literally didn’t speak to each other and left as soon as we had finished eating We wouldn’t go back. Given that most families head to brunch for a prolonged afternoon eating and relaxing the overwhelming noise of the band (who are excellent) was a deal breaker. We ended up wandering round MOE and spending money we didn’t need to spend! The food is good though so if you want to smash and grab a decent buffet lunch it’s worth it. Dear soniakerrigan2010,First of all, thank you for choosing to dine in Olea last Friday Brunch and for sharing your constructive feedback. Your comments are much appreciated.Thank you for acknowledging so many positive elements of your experience, as it is from your feedback that we will be able to uphold our commitment to excellence. I have noted your comments about the food variety and the band, please accept our apologies for the inconveniences caused. Rest assured that we will look into these comments and action accordingly.We hope to see you back soon for another brunch experience.Best Regards,Ghazi LouhichiFood & Beverage Director

Ayamna

Vibrant, aromatic and full of flavour: Lebanese cuisine is a feast for the senses. Taste the authentic flavours of Lebanon at Ayamna, one of the best Lebanese restaurants in Dubai. Book a table in the stunning marble dining room or out on the lantern-lit

Reviewed By DelphineSpinelli

We had an amazing diner at Ayamna, we chose to sit outside and had a great table. Guests at Atlantis with half board, we were three so went with the wise suggestion of Bob to take all on the half board menu and share. The food is just perfect, so is the service and the atmosphere. A dancer comes in several times during the evening for short sessions, this also is perfect, as you have just the right amount of entertainment during the course of your diner. And then the whole staff is amazing, everyone is extremely nice, and sounded passionate about the cuisine they serve.It’s our daughter birthday trip so they brought in a small cake with candles (I had asked about it upon reservation but was told at the concierge it could not be guaranteed, it was a pleasant surprise!)We had a not so pleasant experience the previous evening in another restaurant, Aymna totally made up for it.Will definitely go back, do not hesitate, chose Ayamna for a relaxed evening and delightful dining experience.Dear "DelphineSpinelli", Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We greatly value your recent visit to Ayamna, as we are extremely glad to see your rewarding comments that describing our restaurant at its best image. We will definitely share it with Bob and the team who went for extra mile to deliver a memorable experience to you and the family on that night. Thank you once again for all what you said and we are looking forward to welcoming you back in near future.sincerely yours, Hussein Hadla,Assistant Restaurant Manager

Reviewed By 624hanih

Located in the Ritz-Carlton Dubai, we were lucky enough to meet the executive Chef Rami and Chef Sam who’ guided us and gave us little explanation what and where ,,Amaseena is the perfect place to dine and entertain. Rather than tables in a traditional dining room, guests can dine in Bedouin-style tents set on the Ritz's private beach. They can also partake in an elaborate Emirati feast that's spread out.Fill your plate with spicy kish khash kebabs fresh off the grill, wood-fired breads, chicken shawarma, Syrian lentils yummy with pomegranate syrup Syrian rice , lamb fatayer and the 30 different mezze on offer (including stuffed vine leaves). End the night with a musical serenade as oud and tabla players perform
