We went to this nice and decorative restaurant near Al Bahar Souk. We ordered few Lebanese dishes with nicely cooked flat breads. It was a lovely lunch after a long walk in Dubai mall as well as the Al Bahar Souk.

We had lunch outside overlooking the fountains at Dubai Mall. As advertised, the water show was simply magnificent-even during the day! And the food was very good-nice and spicy. It was an enjoyable and memorable lunch.
