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!

This is my go-to restaurant for Arabian food. The staff are friendly and very welcoming - even at very busy times. The ambiance is pleasant with very Arabic surroundings and the food is both reasonably priced and excellent quality. Whenever visitors are in town, they always enjoy the dinner at Hallab. The lunchtime fare is equally tasty, either dining in,... More

We visited them a couple of times and every time we had a splendid time there. The place looks very good, a bit fancy, having a great view. The food is great in quality, size and price. Amazing! I recommend everyone to give it a try.

It is a very nice restaurant with a nice view. Food was very nice and you can find many variety of meals. Staff was polite and friendly. Hygiene is less than many similar restaurants in Dubai. I saw a waiter coughing alot while serving the food!!!
