PROS:

  • You can see great views from here, even you can see Burj Khalifa.
  • It’s very spacious with windows all around which makes it really cool as you can see all the movement happening in the boulevard while enjoying your meal.

CONS:

  •  Being a Cafe means that it is dominated by shisha smokers, it’s a disadvantage for non-smokers so ask to sit upstairs to avoid the smell of shisha.
  • Their prices are a bit expensive but it’s worth it comparing to the quality of food.

Sarbik Banerjea: Hands down some of the best Lebanese food in Dubai and globally I have tasted. You have to try their hummus and falafel. Service is good, waiters are knowledgeable. A lot I haven’t tried but some amazing dishes and do ask for the daily dish. Book in advance and save a daily dish if you’re interested. Also a major plus is the consistency of the dishes.
