Have been to this place a couple of times though it is quite popular but I found it very ok. Food is standard nothing extra ordinary. Service needs improvement, price is reasonable. Overall a very normal/standard Lebanese restraunt.

Close proximity (just opposite) where we were staying. Dubai has lots of cuisine and either we were spoilt for choice or restaurants were too expensive. This was recommended by the hotel staff and was both affordable and the right place to go if you want a taste of the local cuisine. Great variations and love love love the free flow... More

Nice convenient restaurant right on the main Shaikh zayed road very close to financial center metro . The lamb platter was great and we enjoyed the shwsrma too. They have a garlic paste that went well with their local breads Make sure to ask for hot bread though. Goes well.with the hummus.

When you eat in, the service is good. When you order take out, I really don't look forward to coming again! The same food if ordered while sitting in comes much faster. But when ordering take out, slow as heck. Overall poor service attitude, but good quality food. Another one of those restaurants in Dubai with great food but let... More

My wife and I went there with our Arab friends as they said this was the best Arabic food in Dubai and I must say we were impressed. There are smoking or non-smoking areas unfortunately we had to go into the smoking area. The restaurant was clean and well decorated. The interesting part was the TV screen showing a video... More

Al Safadi Restaurant dubai is a rear arabic test food, the only place you will find it always up to your expectations, very clean and all the staff are friendly dealing with you. most of the time we have to wait to get the table due to the busyness of the restaurant.

home delivery was very fast, under 25 minutes, food that arrived was half cold though. Hummus balila was not eatable, too bland, looked like chick peas in oil only, had no flavour, not enough garlic, not to mention cold upon delivery. Regular hummus was ok - just ok, nothing special. Amount of bread was very sufficient, I could eat that... More
