Al Makan

Al Makan welcome you with open arms to sample the delights of traditional Arabian fare whilst you soak up the atmosphere of Madinat Jumeirah. The friendly environment is bound to make you feel right at home as you relax with a traditional Shisha and some delectable classic dishes which will warm your heart and soul.

Located at the heart of Madinat Jumeirah, Al Makan is the perfect venue to take the weight off your feet after exploring the covered souk - a popular modern market, rich with glorious sights, smells and flavours from local vendors selling their wares. Whether you’re looking for a short stop and bite to eat, or a long, leisurely break with fantastic food and atmosphere, the team at Al Makan will welcome you like a close friend and provide you with the perfect traditional Arabian dining experience.

On the menu you’ll find food which epitomises Arabian heritage: kabobs, grilled meats, rich spiced sauces and traditional Lebanese dishes, all cooked with years of expertise and a great deal of passion. The friendly Al Makan staff are bound to recommend you their favourites if you’re new to Arabian food and would like to sample some of the classics. If you prefer something lighter, there are sandwiches on offer and a range of appetisers that will make the perfect accompaniment to a cool beverage and shisha.

With sumptuous seating areas to sink into indoors, or outdoor tables to soak in the hot Dubai sun, you’ll be able to find the perfect spot to call home for a few hours. Outside you can look over the glorious Jumeirah Ampitheatre and feel soothed by the sound of a lovely babbling fountain. You can also look across the beautiful Madinat Jumeirah canal, where palm trees scatter the water’s edge and boats quietly glide to and fro. Sitting outside in this environment with good food and traditional shisha is the epitome of luxury, particularly on a warm evening as the sun begins to set and daylight turns to dusk over the city.

Inside, which is light, airy and incredibly spacious, you’ll experience classic Arabian décor with a modern twist; bright colours, traditional patterns and gorgeously intricate carvings on walls and wooden beams can be seen throughout. Soft lighting and gentle music complete the atmosphere perfectly so that once you settle in, you simply won’t want to leave. It’s the ideal venue for an informal meal with friends, a cosy date with a special someone or a fun family outing; truly everyone is welcome in this friendly eatery.
