This place was a disappointment after reading reviews from Timeout Abu Dhabi. There are only a limited variety of shisha flavours to choose from, there was no wifi. There is a small out door seating area, but it's not that nice as it is located at the front of the cafe, where off street parking is. It's quite smoky inside... More

Rather than eating a weekend buffet at a nearby hotel, I tried Ninar. The wait staff was very attentive as I was the only person in the cafe. The breakfast was average in taste and presentation.

The food is excellent, the service is good and the price per person is accepted. The problem is the location, it's not easy to find a parking.

The sheesha here is one of the best that I've ever had. They have lots of flavours to choose from. The staff are very attentive. The food was really great. The hot chocolate is divine! And the Ninar crepe was fabulous. Since they're open till 1am everyday, it's the perfect place for a late night drink/snack and smoke.

Really good prices and good food. I was hoping it was more tradition but decor is modern and menu is broad. Mains are around AED30. Sheisha is good and cheep also I think around AED20. I say cheap because we had been staying in a 5 star resort where everything was expensive.

Good Small cafe that's Good for Shisha - hubby bubbly. Prices are average. Can be crowded in the evenings. The food is average, nothing special. If you visit ask for Brian to be your waiter. He's awesome.

The Iftar buffet is only AED 75.00 per person and it includes food and Iftar beverages (three different types - tea is not included though). The selection of food is mainly Arabic dishes (there were also two types of pasta) and it's a bit poor. The Iftar buffet closes at 8:30pm (too early!) and the food that finishes doesn't get... More

You'd be shocked how can restaurants still have bad services I mean we are in 2014!!! Staff is horrible. Service is the worst I have ever witnessed and the food is very average.

Had a beautiful seafood salad here and my girlfriend had an excellent Spanish omelette. The food was very good value and the service is decent. Unfortunately their AC was not high enough and the place was far too hot. It was very uncomfortable. Despite the heat I will certainly return to try the rest of the menu.
