Located right next to Burj Khalifa, Reem Al Bawadi has some pretty traditional interiors. It has indoor and outdoor seating and serves shisha. Also has a paid valet parking available or you could navigate through Opera parking for free parking.
If the annoying wobbly and uneven tables were not enough, the drinks didn’t please us either. We got an Oreo milkshake for the kid and it was horrible. The milk was all torn up for some reason and we had to send it back. The cocktails also didn’t seem fresh or tasty.
We got some typical Lebanese starters like hummus, mutabbal, and some lamb samboosas along with the fattoosh salad. They all tasted good and samboosa was our favorite.
We got some chicken kababs, mix grill platter and a seafood grill platter. The grills are something you should try out if dining here. Enjoyed the fish and kebabs.
The desserts were flat out stale to the point of being inedible. We got Mixed Arabic sweets platter and everything was hard.
I remember Reem Al Bawadi was one of the best Lebanese restaurants when it had just one branch in Jumeirah and we use to visit a lot. Unfortunately, the quality has dropped immensely. The service was well below average. The grills are decent but not good enough to bring us back.
