Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Exquisite food and extremely attentive staff💗 I’ve stayed in the Shangri La for many years but it was my first time to try this restaurant on the grounds of the souk attached to the hotel. The Lebanese white wine was beautiful, the complimentary flat breads,...olives, chick peas and almonds were so fresh& tasty! The staff were friendly& attentive& we can’t wait to go back!More

I came for dinner 2 times, the service was very oblinging and friendly, they give my good recommendations. The food was delicious in nice presentation. Was a pity, that I came alone and couldn't share the food and so not tast some more dishes. But...I came 2 times and was very satisfied. Thank you for the 2 tasty dinner in a very pleasant atmosphere.More

We keep going back to the best Lebanese Restaurant in the UAE. Abdel Wahab Shangrila Abu Dhabi never lets us down. Their desert is inovative and delicious. Aemad ensures you are looked after time after time 100%.

My partner and I have just eaten and what can I say ?! We ordered at 7.50 and by 8.30 we were in taxi. The starters arrived and then straight away our main course arrived. Is this normal for Lebanese food ?! I’m no food...expert but I’m sure no traditional Lebanese food is served with frozen French fries! I would definitely not return or recommend.More

Living at the Shangri La, this is an old favourite. It is simple Lebanese food, well executed. I am a huge fan of the shish taouk. The waiting staff make you feel at home and nothing is too much trouble.

I have been there many many and many times before. It used to be my favorite place. Good food and good prices. Unfortunately now the place looks abandoned, dirty , empty. Maybe because of Covid. Location is alwa6perfect. But food quality is low, staff seems...sad and tired, toilets are out of order, and the bill is doubled. Why pay the double for the half of services?? So I will never come back here again , not with family, not even with tourists I used to bring here for job. As a licensed tourist guide of Abu Dhabi I can tell you not to come here anymore.More

Good food but a few more smiles would be lovely. We have eaten here several times and had take out. The food is consistently good, the location lovely and the standards on the whole are high....if I have one complaint, it would be that the...staff sometimes seem a little fed up and don't really do as mush as they could to enhance the experience. Maybe it is cultural but we would like a little more cheer😀More

We ended up eating here after also considering a few other places in the area. The ambiance is quite nice and we sat on the patio on a a nice evening. It was pleasant. The food was good overall. Their hummus and warm pita are...great - all fresh. The service was also overall really great. I had one server that I think could learn form the others but the manager really wanted to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. One of the items ordered was the grilled shrimp. Unfortunately this was not eatable as the shrimp was over cooked. I let them know and they offered to make it right. In the end, I opted not to have this dish and they were fair in not charging me for it. This was the only disappointment and it truly may have been a one off. Otherwise I would go again but I wouldn’t order the shrimp again.More
