We were here at sunset. The view of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque silhouetted by the setting sun was priceless. We had the mixed grill which was superb, and the hummus was probably the best I have had. This is well worth the trip.

Always stop off for dinner here when staying at any of the hotels in the area. We ordered our usual - kofta kheshkhash & lamb cutlets. Both were good but the tomato sauce served with the kofta looked & tasted like it was out of a jar. It used to be served on a bed of tasty fresh tomato. Would... More

It was very nice. For starters we ordered Moutabbal, Tabouleh salad, grill halloumi cheese, and a small bowl of lentil soup. These arrived within ten minutes. For the... More

The food taste is very average. If weather permits the seating outside looking over the bay is nice. Liquor and shisha is served here, waiters are from middle eastern background. Lookout for the entertainer voucher. C U Around

Wonderful dinner. Nice ambiance. Great staff. The Arabic bread was tops. It was great to sit outside and to enjoy our wonderful dinner. Service was a bit slow but then the place was packed so understandable.

Been there yesterday with friends. The food is divine, the staff is friendly and helpful. The ambience of the place is just right and the background of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque makes it an impeccable experience.

If you like Lebanese food, you will love Abd El Wahab. This gem of a restaurant along the shore served better Lebanese food than what you get in Lebanon. Indoor and outdoor seating-- facing a great view. The service was excellent as the Abd El Wahab waiting team took care of the finest details, going way beyond the customary. Although... More

Every single dish is outstanding. It is Middle Eastern Grills with a daily dish which is usually a special of the day. Staff are very friendly and they change your plates all the time. If it's your first time, let the Chef recommend your food.
