Lebanese Flower Grill, Khalidiyah - Lebanese bread and a delicious mixed grill!

Location: Al Khalidiyah, Abu Dhabi
Tel: +971 2 665 8700
Located: Behind Electra and 26th Street
Opening hours: 7am-3am daily

Located in the Khalidiyah area of Abu Dhabi, one of town's most famous (and good value!) restaurants, the Lebanese Flower Grill. SLURRRP!

Starters ... Hmmm, not sure what these balls were called, but they were delicious, as was the little salad. Humus was complimentary, perhaps cos' the 4 of us ordered so much food! There was also some rather delicious pitta-type bread.

Best Grill Mix:Restaurant Name: Lebanese FlowerLocation:1)Abu Dhabi, Tourist Club, near blood bank, on the same line of Maroosh and Abu Saeed.2)Abu Dhabi, Khaldiya, you can miss it, its in the back between Choitram, KM and Muhairi Centre.3)Abu Dhabi, Defense Road just after the Wahda mall signal.
Cleanness: 8/10
Eat In: Recommended, also available family sections.
Take Away: Very good service and heavy ques ups in weekends, delivery service not so bad when not busy.
My recommendations: Sandwiches from the inside, ask for Shish Tawook Grilled or Chicken with vegetables. Also Recommended Meat Tika Sandwiches on Arabic Nan or you can try the Lebanese sandwiches such as falafel with Tahini or if you want something new, Lsanat or Sujuq or Kidneys.
Summary: Lebanese flower is known for its mix grill and sandwiches, its shawerma quality is just going down every day.

Our main course .... a ONE KILO (Yes, 1 kg!) Mixed Grill. Lamb, beef, and chicken wings cooked to perfection. Delicious with the warm freshly-made bread!

Eye-poppingly tasty and always buzzing, the Khalidiyah branch in particular feels like some rustic kitchen. It’s probably one of the dearer Lebanese outfits, but a shish taouk with houmous, soup and a glass of juice will still only set you back Dhs49. Meanwhile, a cheerful man wanders the restaurant dishing out huge discs of fresh, hot Lebanese bread like some benevolent king. Forget the fries, they’re always lousy, but the kebabs are succulent and delicious.
