The restaurant is as much about the upstairs view over the Dubai Creek as the food. Both are fabulous. Go before dusk and watch the Creek mood change as the night arrives. Lights, busy abras on the creek, music wafting through the air. Beautiful.

When you are fed up with modern Dubai head to the creek and eat at Barjeel. The dishes are classic middle eastern and all appear well cooked. Hummus was fresh and great consistency, fattoush had pomegranate and a better balance of vinegar than some I have eaten and the camel wraps were well flavoured and cooked. Service was efficient and the location overlooking the creek adds authenticity and interest.

Went to have lunch, however all of the local/Arabic dishes we wanted were not available. But could have a burger or spaghetti bolognese!
Mint and lemon was however excellent.
I think they were distracted by a Chinese camera crew doing a piece on the food, however great location, just disappointed with the situation.

Dear Mr. Nicholas
Greetings from Barjeel Al Arab Restaurant..

I would like to thank you for taking time to share your valuable experience with us.

Kindly accept our sincere apology for the overall experience you had during your visit to Barjeel Al Arab one of our famous well known Emarati cuisine Restaurant. We do understand where you are coming from and with a heavy heart we are sad to know that you were disappointed with the food where our culinary expert fails to produce Arabic Food on your recent visit,Particularly the shortcoming mentioned about our culinary expert has been informed to our executive Chef. I have personally taken the matter to him.
Same time I am so glad to hear that you like our signature fresh lemon mint drink.
We strive to meet our guests expectation on each visit, I will appreciate if you and your friends do come over again to experience our usual standard that won us many awards.

Kind Regards,

Azhar Allauddin
