The food was great but due to the service, we would never recommend it. We were two women and two children. The waiter who took our order gave us the death stare and acted as if we were wasting his time while ordering, nearly rolled his eyes when we asked for another drink and almost yelled at my handicapped Mother...

Alhalab is one of my favorite Lebanese restaurants in Dubai. I usually go to Algarhood branch. Wide variety of Lebanese food and sweets.

If you are looking for a good Lebanese restaurant, well this is it. Plenty of food, fast service, good atmosphere (although maybe a bit... tired, but ok anyway). Mixed grilled meat and the various dishes served will not disappoint. Also the milk with rice (dessert) is not to miss... We will return there when in Dubai

I was skeptical to eat at the mall but Al Hallab did not disappoint. This restaurant has an authentic touch which you don't find as much in the tourist areas. The hummus was really good.The Lebanese chocolates were to die for. The lime mint drink is addicting. They kept the my complimentary warm bread basket full as well as my... More

I enjoyed my dinner here with family, they has a great selection of Arabic cuisine which was just divine with an even more impressive selection of Lebanese chocolates and confectionaries right inside it.

Enjoyed a substantial meal in this authentic and atmospheric restaurant and received excellent service. Had a selection of mezzes to start accompanied by complimentary flat breads and superb Toum (aerated garlic sauce). The mixed grill mains were perfectly cooked and were devoured with relish. To finish we had a baklava selection accompanied by a variety of coffees. All for 394... More

An average Lebanese restaurant. Appetizers are good but salads still need a pure Lebanese touch. Same applies for grilled plates. Hummus tastes great, they also have yummy green olives as a starter.

I would say its definitely a great Lebanese restaurant. Their meat is good and the food comes fast. Service seems a bit untrained and the atmosphere feels especially inside like the Dubai mall next door (rather than a restaurant). But if you are anyway at the mall, it’s a good but expensive place to get food!
