After visiting the Souk Madinat, a major tourist trap, we decided on a Persian meal, so at the top of the list was Anar. Although both myself and partner said the lamb dishes we had were so tasty, we felt that the restaurant was comparatively...More

The prices at Anar are quite high...even compared to its counterparts in the touristy area of Souk Madinat. The atmosphere is lovely and the food is flavorful. Service is not very good.

Without the entertainer I would consider this restaurant extremely overprized. But given that it is in a major tourist spot not so surprising. However the kababs were outstanding. Cooked to perfection. Service could be better.

Anar is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is delicious and the atmosphere at the Madinat Souk is fantastic. Portions are big and tastefull.

I thought the food was good- however we both felt our lamb was lacking flavor and the hummus was very bland. I was expecting more from a beautiful location and a Persian restaurant! Totally not worth how much we paid! Wouldn't be back!

Visited the souk, and decided to eat at Anar. Wasn't disappointed. Lovely table by the river, and nice views of the Burj Al Arab. Food was simple, but lovely.
