Located in the grounds of the flawless Ritz Carlton Hotel. Amaseena provides an Arabic food experience you won't forget. Staff were very friendly and helpful as soon as we arrived. My girlfriend had a bad back and they made sure she was comfortable before we ate. We chose to sit at a table rather than one of the tents for this reason. Live music added to the experience.The food is to die for. I wish I hadn't eaten so much starter as I was struggling to fit in the later courses. The food is excellent and caters for everyone. Buffet style arrangement but you get to interact with the chefs, who are very informative and talk you through each dish. I could barely walk as was so full at the end. Will definitely return when back in Dubai. Must thank Mario for his hospitality and wonderful service.

Incredible food, beautiful setting and friendly atmosphere. The chef Hassam made our experience perfect and we felt really welcome. I wouldn't hesitate to come back! I thought the price was reasonable.

1) food - 10/10, very fresh, very tasty, very varied, and A LOT OF IT (buffet including salads, mains, grill and desserts)
2) environment - on a pristine Ritz beach, very cozy. Perfect place for an after meal shisha while you digest (till you are able to walk again :D)
3) staff - super friendly and helpful in a non-pretentious way. Chefs tell you about each dish with passion and recommendations. And boy do they encourage you to eat...
4) value - we spent about 600AED (~£100) for two with food (all you can eat buffet), non-alcoholic drinks and shisha. Absolutely worth every penny of it if not more!

Would definitely recommend to everyone as it was perfect!

Lovely food, and so much of it!! Staff were incredibly helpful. Chefs were on hand to explain every dish, and also make recommendations. Staff were so attentive, various dishes were brought to us from the buffet. Entertainment and setting made it an amazing evening. We stayed for over 3 hours and had a great time!

Well to start off we searched on internet for best lebanese restaurants in dubai and this one caught our attention. After reading it's reviews on tripadvisor we decided to go out and see what so many people here enjoyed. After making reservation for a tent (highly recommended) we were very excited to be visiting after reading previous descriptions. Reaching there I must agree it is completely like a little lost world of its own with palm trees, tents, arabic live music, smell of good food.
One look around the buffet and we were already sure that the right decision was made. You fall in love with the entire place immediately.
Dinner wise the food was amazing especially the dips.
Chefs were always around explaining the food with enthusiasm.
Service is as expected of a Ritz- treated like king and queen!
Our waitress ester was ever attentive and available. My husband was even served gluten free bread on the table as he is allergic!
To finish my long review just a final say that please give this place a try if you want great food, an overall arabic feel and great service.
Thank you Amaseena for a special evening.
