It is not so uncommon to find turkish and lebanese restaurant in Abu Dhabi. But to go out and experiment exclusively in such a cusine is a bit unusual for me. The food was excellently prepared and exquisitely delicious. No complaints.

It was ADIPEC 2010 last week in UAE & we went out to lunch at Mawaweel Lebanese food. The food was average but i can not really judge too well as I saw a sliced Black Spider in the food. Avoid a Spider in your food & go elsewhere.
