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.

I went to this restaurant during my stay in the Marriott hotel. They have a smoking and nonsmokers section. Grill and oven in the back of the restaurant, where you can see the chefs at work. One of them is baking the bread. They bring the ingredients of the salad and then you need to figure it out your self.... More

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

When you go out for dinner, enjoying the food is the most important, isn't ? Well the food is not the problem. It is actually very good. It's just the entertainment is so loud that a converstaion with your fellow tablemates is almost impossible. I really went outside for a while during dinner to give my ears a bit of... More

We were one of two tables in the restaurant so it was virtually empty. Sat down and a live singer started with loud music which made it difficult to converse with dinner companions. There were no quiet smoking tables. The singing went on for hours. Quite strange in an empty restaurant. The food was average. Some of the mixed grill... More
