Fancied sampling some local-style food and this restaurant was in the hotel next to ours so we gave it a go. We just went for simplicity with houmous (possibly the best ever) to start followed by chicken kebabs. The atmosphere was quite quiet being a Sunday.

This place pretty much has it all and caters for all. Tucked away in Crowne Plaza on Yas Island, they have an outdoor section (where we sat) which is quiet and tranquil and then there is an indoor section where all the action was.

Due to the wind, we decide to eat inside. The patio area looked nice. We were unsure of what to eat. The waiters were very... More

We were greeted amiably upon arrival and were led into a dimly-lit dining where each table are covered in clean white cloths and comfortable gray chairs. The stage area is equipped with musical instruments which later create a vibrant atmosphere when the Arabic lady singer sang. If you plan to visit at night, expect a live belly dancing. A wide...

It was a nice evening. A bit too much smoke in the room for ex smokers. Food was nice but not enough salad with the meat dishes. Good music and belly dancer on the Thursday night.

Delicious Lebanese food with great innovative presentations, very tasty. The outdoor area is a great venue specially when the weather is good. The service is a little slow but friendly.

I joined friends here for dinner whilst staying in Abu Dhabi at the Crowne Plaza. The menu had a lot to offer and making a decision was difficult. We settled on fattuoush, lamb, and seafood. The amount of food was overwhelming as the servings were huge! They did not disappoint!!! This restaurant is well worth your time.
