The Review

  • The Good

    Perched on the scenic waterfront of the Dubai Water Canal, Keif Restaurant brings an authentic taste of Lebanon straight to Business Bay. Situated in the Blue Bay Tower, this Levantine restaurant specialises in everything from traditional Lebanese cuisine to Italian specialties.

    A popular hotspot for shisha with indoor and outdoor seating, Keif offers up breakfast, lunch and dinner options, staying open late until 5am daily. Already well-known in Lebanon and Egypt, this casual eatery's menu features an array of salads, international dishes, hot and cold mezze, and a variety of desserts.

    We were impressed to find the restaurant split into smoking and non-smoking areas - perfect for families who'd rather dine away from all the smoke. We popped in for a quick bite and enjoyed seeing diners playing backgammon while smoking a shisha and sipping on Moroccan tea - you can't get much more authentic than that!

    Popular for lunch goers working in the Business Bay area, expect Keif's outdoor terrace to be bustling during cooler months. We just couldn't get enough of the Water Canal views; it was definitely one of the things we loved most about the restaurant.

  • The Bad
    While we loved the food and picture-perfect views, we weren't too keen on the restaurant's décor. We thought the design of the interiors didn't do Keif justice; it was quite plain and didn't suit the authenticity Keif is known for.

    If you're planning on heading down on match night, expect the restaurant to get full quickly, especially in the smoking section. Our advice? We'd recommend booking a table before heading down if you know it's a big sports match.
  • The Tips
    In the mood for some traditional home-cooked food? Daily dishes are available from 12pm to 4.30pm both in the restaurant and for delivery, as well. If you're driving down, it's worth noting that paid parking is available right outside Keif.

    A must-try dish is the Chicken Keif; it's a delicious main course of grilled chicken topped with a creamy Keif sauce, fries and vegetables. Pancake lover? Check out the menu's tasty selection of pancake and crepe flavours. Daily specials include popular favourites such as Bemiyeh and Kebbeh bl Sayniyeh.
