We have been multiple times to the Fanr and visited today, again. The sizes of the carrot cake was only 50% of what we were used to. They were so small that we asked for the supervisor. He explained that this is the standard size. We explained that we had much larger pieces before, but this is the standard now.... More

24 minutes I sat unnoticed and unserved today. They redeemed themselves with an awesome Penne Arabiata and detox juice in just seconds after they finally took my order. As a bonus they gave me a lovely pot of black tea on the house.

My wife and I visited this restaurant on a recent Friday night. We arrived after 8 pm so decided on the à la carte menu, not the buffet, which runs from 6pm to 9pm. The food was exceptionally good. Lamb shanks has always been a favourite of mine and this was the best I have ever tasted, delicious flavour of... More

I coordinated with the manager Shain to hold a large (~30 person) group event here. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Shain, he was flexible and professional. The night of the event was excellent, everyone received great service, great food, and great drink. A good time was had by all. Highly highly recommend.

Been to the Fanr Friday night BBQ a few times. Amazing value for money and unlimited alcoholic beverages. What's not to love!!?? Great ambiance, friendly service and a good spread. Chefs grilling in front of you, great selection of salads, main course and dessert too.

We visited this restaurant last Friday and we were glad there was a place for the children to play in (Bouncy Castle). It gave me and my wife an option for having a quiet dinner while the children enjoyed playing. Food options were limited, was expecting a more variety of meat on the BBQ. However the food was great and... More

We eat at FANR regularly, especially because they offer 25% off delivery which makes prices in line to what they should be. The salmon and horiyatiki (Greek) salad are both excellent. Hopefully they keep the promotion going as we are weekly customers as a result. Similarly had a recent promotion for Friday bbq: great grilled food (especially the garlic shrimp)... More

From the amazing outside ambience to the sincere, terrific service and food, Fanr is a real jewel and credit to Abu Dhabi. Great diversity of food, very cool cheese plate nights and family BBQ not to mention their tasty camel burger! This is a regular now for us. Not too many places where the manager comes to your table and... More

Lamb shanks transported me to comfort food memory lane. Our shrimp linguini was al dente perfect in cream sauce and more than perfect. Gerald, our waiter was warm and accommodating as he shared to us organic farming tips and his grand plans of "farm to fork" at Fanr in the future.
