Great location in the Medinat Hotel Dubai, by the hotel canals, with nice views of Burj-Al-Arab. The food was below expectations. Whilst the meat itself was very good and tasty, the dish presentation was average. The rice alongside the meat (part of most dishes) is...More

I went to Anar last year and I decided to try it again during my recent trip to Dubai. I am a big fan of Persian food and Anar did not disappoint me. Meat was extremely tender and of the highest quality. Steamed saffron rice...More
