Stopped in for a late lunch yesterday. There were 5 of us. We were asked if we had a reservation (while there were only 2-3 tables occupied). For whatever reason there was some fuss about whether or not to seat us. Super strange. We finally got seated outside on the patio only to have the hostess return 5 minutes later... More

Abd El Wahab sits right across from Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Mall. It is part of the Souq and like many things in the area seems fake and touristy. The restaurant menu looked good and we were in the area. We were visiting Dubai for the first time and did not know of any places to eat and were... More

The food was very nice with a reasonable price for the location. It's better to seat on the terrace as the atmosphere and the style inside is not so nice. I've put 4 stars and not 5 only because I found the staff not pleasant, no smile and poor service.

Went here on our last night in Dubai, the location of the restaurant is great, excellent views of Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountains. Ask for a table outside if you want to watch the light show! We watched it before eating so didn't mind being seated inside! Would recommend booking as it was extremely busy. Food was very tasty and... More

Best view from a mid-range restaurant around the entire fountains. Sitting outside is definitely advisable and also do book in advance, the sooner the better too as it's very busy. Food is very good offering a great variety of Middle Eastern food that is all very tasty with great service. Top tip - ask for a table by the railings... More

Book ahead and ask for a table outside. It's obviously not air conditioned like the inside room but you get a fantastic view of the fountains by the Dubai Mall which put on a brilliant sound and water show every 30 minutes in the evening. Plus you can see the Burj Khalifa, lit up at night. We went for the... More

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.
