Al Tannour

You can dine as a couple at Al Tannour, but it would be a shame to do so. With dish after exceptional dish from the set menu piled up in front of you, this is definitely a place for sharing. And with music and enthusiastic live entertainment kicking off at 11pm, it’s the type of venue where a group of friends can enjoy a festive gathering until well into the night. From the almonds, served with ice cubes to soften them and bring out the flavour, to the bread, which is hand-stretched, cooked and folded throughout the night by an alcovebound lady baker, it is very hard to find fault. The makdous are a little tart but the vine leaves, with a perfect consistency and just a touch of vinegar, are wonderful. The hummos has a welcome bite and the sizzling chicken wings are irresistible, with melting meat and a lemony tang. Miniature spicy lamb pastries and surprising but delicious smoked salmon and giant prawns are topped off by chunks of grilled lamb and chicken which are likely to provoke spontaneous gasps of appreciation as their juices run down your chins. The feast is brought to a close with a fresh fruit platter that wouldn’t look out of place at a medieval banquet, and cream-filled sweets with rose syrup that miraculously avoids sickliness. The desserts and entertainment are available for Dhs150 per person, which is a good option if there are only a couple of you. By midnight every seat will be taken and the volume, laughter and applause rises accordingly. With an intoxicating atmosphere and excellent food and service, we recommend you round up a large group of friends, book well in advance and don’t make any plans for the following morning.
