We were a big group. Lebanese food is very tasty. In addition, you will attend the Arab music with dance. Finally we smoked in a hookah with Arabic tea

Nice band (singers) and dancer. Welcoming atmosphere for friend/family gatherings. Poor set menu with bad fruit salad.

The music could be better and the entertainment is average. The service was good. Smoking and non smoking areas.

The restaurant has a nice environment where you can enjoy listening to oriental music either live or recorded. Also, I tasted there an amazing Mix Grill. But it has no outside view at all as it is located underground inside JW Marriott hotel of Mirage City.

This was a good place to visit after a long day although the live music was a bit annoying. The belly dancing that followed was a bit better. The food and service was very good. The humous and flat breads were divine and we got a huge salad to accompany it. A Whole lettuce, tomato, red pepper and courgette. Great... More

We had our Christmas Eve dinner here in 2015. Lovely food, great entertainment (the belly dancer & the music were wonderful - the kids loved it). Highly recommended.

I was looking for Lebanese food and decided to eat at Ahlein after the friendly staff helped me with their selection. I loved it! Great food, wine and Messah. Just remember that the 12% service charge is NOT a tip
