Slightly grumpy front of house but service was good and food was very tasty We had humous and tabouleh which accompanied our chicken and lamb shawarma plates. Far too much food as he accompanying bread was kept coming but delicious. With a large bottle of water bill... More

We have eaten at the restaurant twice, once in January and once in May. Its outside seating offers you a terrific view of the dancing waters under the Burj Kahlifi. The food is good and you cannot go wrong. We were a group of ten which included two small children ( ages 2-3). We ordered several appetizers to be shared... More

Food is good no doubt..However, the Service is really bad. The servers have their arrogance up to their nose. I have faced this many times but I always thought as they are busy, I am assuming it..Yet again it was the same story.. Last week on a weekday, I had gone with my friend to have dinner as we wanted... More

We have to waited for seating outside more than 30 minutes but they seated another guests who came after us earlier - simply they forgot about us. Food was really delicious but also very pricey. View for Dubai Fountain is better from first floor from Apple store.

We were lucky to get a table on the terrace for dinner and had great views of the fountain displays! This really adds to atmosphere. The restaurant is large and very busy! Staff seemed a little too busy to provide a fully efficiently service for example our drinks only came halfway through dinner. They did seem rushed off their feet... More

At the lower ground level of the Dubai Mall this restaurant is a lovely stop for lunch or dinner. Massive seating so you would rarely not get place. It has both indoor and outdoor seating, the latter being by the lake. For vegetarians don't miss the platter with potatoes and green beans. The salad too is fresh and for chicken... More

After a hard day destroying your credit card in Dubai Mall, take a moment to relax and enjoy exceptional Lebanese food at Wafi Gourmet. The atmosphere is relaxed and they also have a great Deli selection of hard to find dried fruits and condiments inside the restaurant.

The food & service are quality here. Didn't order a drink, was poured water from a bottle already on the table to be charged for the whole bottle. Makes up for the unlimited bread they give you with dinner. Near to the fountain show.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
