Al Hadheerah

Set in a uniquely recreated oasis fort village in the heart of the desert, Al Hadheerah is not just a restaurant - it's much, much more. Located within the Bab Al Shams resort, guests can enjoy fine, traditional cuisine alongside a sensory spectacle of dancing, music and culture under the stars.

Much more than just a restaurant, Al Hadheerah combines culture, entertainment and impressive architecture with the finest, authentic Arabian cuisine to create a truly unforgettable experience for every guest. The intriguing setting for your meal is a carefully recreated oasis fort town, set amid Dubai's desert dunes and part of the Bab Al Shams resort. Visitors can explore the collection of mock sandstone structures which recreate a traditional fortified village – just as if it had sprung right from the pages of A Thousand and One Nights – but in this case it's a thousand and one culinary delights!

At Al Hadheerah you can enjoy dramatic falconry displays, belly dancers, traditional music and much more – all whilst enjoying a truly extravagant buffet feast under the stars. Traditional Middle Eastern mezze dishes and grilled meats are prepared with expertise at the various live cooking stations, using authentic culinary techniques and the finest, freshest local ingredients. Don't forget to leave room for the tasty, indulgent desserts on offer.

Guests can choose a spot to enjoy the entertainment spectacle – from up on the village rooftops to carpeted pits, or even a front-row spot by the stage. With the mouth-watering aromas of cooking drifting from the spit roasts and wood-fired ovens, Al Hadheerah will deliver a visual and cultural sensation to match your culinary satisfaction. Horses, camels, dancers and musicians all weave their magic to create a special, amazing, memorable sensory sensation.

Al Hadheerah is part of Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa, situated in the heart of the desert but just forty minutes by road from Dubai. It's the perfect place for visitors seeking a unique, authentic desert experience that's still within easy reach of the city, and it offers all the comforts and modern conveniences expected by international travellers.

The setting of Al Hadheerah in an oasis amid a stunningly recreated Arabic fort offers a unique ambiance and captivating atmosphere that's like no other Dubai experience. It's the perfect destination for anyone searching for the best traditional Emirati cuisine – cooked to perfection – along with a captivating cultural performance of music, dance and spectacle.
