It was a very bad experience and a bad service. And a long wait, the staff were very slow. They brought us half of the order, and when they brought the rest of the food. When we told them where the rest of the order...was, they told us that there were many customers, it would take time to prepare the order. We ate half of the order and did not bring the rest. It was a bad experience. I wished I didn't go. I don't think I'll be back againMore

Great food and lovely hospitality I was recommended to visit Aroosh Damascus and was not disappointed. The food was great - the fresh vegetables and pickles which were given at the start were delicious, and there was a constant flow of fresh pitta breads to...the table.More

A dining experience at the Al Aroos Damascus Restaurant is nothing short of a gastronomic delight. This is not just a restaurant; it is a culinary haven where generosity, variety, and taste converge to create a harmony of flavors that lingers long after the last...bite. My experience was nothing short of enchanting, a feast that surpassed the boundaries of a mere meal. The establishment's magnanimity, both in portions and variety, leaves an indelible mark on my palate each time I go there. Seated beneath the tented roof, the winter ambiance imparts an additional layer of charm to the dining experience. An unbelievably vast menu unfolds to reveal a plethora of options, spanning both hot and cold delicacies. In mere minutes, my table underwent a metamorphosis into a tableau of abundance. The freshness, wholesomeness, and healthful richness of the offerings were evident. With its concordant fusion of spices and fresh ingredients, Arabic cuisine beckons gastronomes into a world where every dish tells a story of rich history, diverse cultural influences, heritage and flavors that captivate the senses. Each bite is a journey through time and tradition, making Arabic dining an experience that transcends a mere meal. The traditional delights of Hummus, manakeesh, grilled halloumi, foul meddamas, Falafel, tabouleh, moutabal, baba ghanoush, and fattoush adorned my table, each presenting a unique facet of Levantine cuisine. The shawarma and shish taouk further elevated the dining experience. A noteworthy recommendation is the fresh hammour, grilled to perfection – spicy and crispy on the outside and tender, flaky, and succulent inside. A ubiquitous and beloved dish, Hummus is a velvety blend of chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic. This creamy concoction serves as a versatile dip, often adorned with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika. Shawarma, the culinary icon synonymous with the streets of the Middle East, is a succulent marvel of marinated and slow-cooked meat served in a flatbread with garlic sauce and pickles. The Kebabs here are a testament to the art of grilling. The marriage of spices, herbs, and charcoal imbues these kebabs with an irresistible smoky allure. Tabouleh, a refreshing herb salad and a vibrant complement to heartier dishes, is a medley of finely chopped parsley, mint, tomatoes, onion, and soaked bulgur drenched in olive oil and lemon juice. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, the Falafel is a cherished dish made from finely ground chickpeas blended with herbs and spices before deep-fried to golden perfection. Moutabal, or the Baba Ghanoush, is a smoky sibling to Hummus. It is made from roasted eggplant mixed with tahini, garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice, resulting in a silky dip with a distinct smokiness.More

It’s the nicest place for Syrian food in dubai. Lots of seating, good service and great food. I tried the non veg platter so I could try many kababs in one. Wings , lamb kabab and mutton tikkas were fabulous. Hummus with pine nuts great...too and the Arabic bread was piping hot. Better than the standard pita bread served in 5 stars.More

Went in at 7pm for an early dinner, sat in the smoking room to get a shisha, the room was cold, so I was given a pashmina. After a while they opened up the glass doors, so it was more pleasant. Had lots of good...quality mezzeh and mains, portions were very generous. Prices were ok. A lot of parking available just outside. Seating outdoors would have been lovely but it was too hot and you are not allowed to smoke shisha outside. By 9pm the place was packed, so, reservations are recommended, if possible. Service was professional and attentive. One small suggestion, have the Italian section of the menu checked by an Italian on your next re-print because some of the names were really funny, ah and please don’t cook sea-horses, they are lovely creatures and inedible.More

Excellent Arabic food. Very friendly staff, who were happy to give insights on the various dishes for our dinner. We were there for a birthday celebration, and the staff were more than happy to meet our requests and made the day. Excellent location. Indoor and...outdoor seating, though outdoor is noisy due to the traffic on Sheikh Zayed Road. 'Always On' Festive ambiance. Feels like a big party. Great for families.More
