Local's Favourite Arabian Tea House in the Al Fahidi Historic District
This restaurant is housed in a traditional Arabian building with a beautiful courtyard and outdoor seating areas. It definitely gives us the most relaxing dinning experience with a touch of the authentic Emirati culture. Their grilled meats with pita bread, in addition to a huge selection of teas and refreshing drinks are something that you should absolutely try before you leave the restaurant. We highly recommend you sitting in the courtyard so that you could enjoy your meal in a lush greenery setting.
