This Iraqi restaurant offers really good dishes. They are popular for their river fish dishes. We tried sea water grilled supreme fish for our main course with a few small appetizer side dishes. The fish was very fresh and tasty. Certain small dishes such as a thick lentil soup, a small salad, freshly baked bread and pickles come by default... More

One of the best Iraqi restaurants ever visited. Has many selections and nice indoor setting area, and absolutely with magnificent staff. Varity of dishes with special Iraqi flavors was something special to the served dishes. Prices are considered reasonable, except for seafood, and I like their complementary soup and salad. One thing is plus for this nice restaurant and should... More

This is the first time I've been to an Iraqi restaurant and my visit wasn't a disappointment. Their seafood is very good, service is equally fantastic

A most interesting and new menu direction. Preordered 'hot coals' cooked fresh water Carp... Service very good. Abundance and variety of food. Ambience suits the type of restaurant, Altho tables seem very close together.

It is a habit for me to dine there on a monthly basis. Great food, lovely atmosphere and the Iraqi traditional design is among the best features of this restaurant, whether the brunch in Daira or Jumairah.

Been there with my family in Eid Holidays (Sep). I read a lot about the restaurants and many of my friends have recommended it. I can confidently say that the food is very tasty, although I thought that it's a bit pricey. The first thing I noticed when I first entered is the staff/waiters: NO SMILE at all. It wasn't... More

I'm Iraqi but I have been living in London more than 10 years and it's really hard to find an Iraqi restaurant that has a good authentic food. Visiting Dubai was an opportunity for me to make my dream come true and eat at the reputable Samad Iraqi Restaurant. I was not disappointed with the food at all and they... More

Here you can find good and delicious food, a mix of Iraqi and lebanese i can say. The service is really good and their bread is really really tasty! The only negative thing is that the food is bit heavy
