Food review for Al Safadi Restaurant, Al Rigga, Dubai
We went here at 2 am (thank you zomato.com for mentioning the timings of restaurants - it really helps) because we had some friends that were visiting Dubai for the first time and wanted to see what Zaatar was. Even though it was 2am the staff was so attentive and friendly, I can imagine how tired they must actually be!
Food: Since we had already eaten dinner we just came here for the manakish. Manakish is basically a freshly baked bread with various toppings on it (like meat and cheese/zaatar / cheese, etc) and is folded in half to make it easier to hold while eating. We order the cheese manakish and the zaatar manakish. Prior to the food they placed on our table a small plate of olives and pickles which really added to the flavour of the manakish. The cheese manakish was just over-oozing with cheese and both were served pipping hot. The zaatar had a generous amount of olive oil as well.
Ambiance: Our friends absolutely loved it, not only did they love the food, they loved the restaurant. The restaurant has both indoor and out door seating and the interiors are gorgeous! high ceilings, fountains and a few staircase, its got the look of a restaurant in Dubai Marina.
Price: The manakish are all approx 7 - 10 aed so definitely worth it as they are soo filling.
