Fanr Restaurant

It’s all about the camel burger at Fanr – just make sure it’s in stock before you set out, as they have been known to disappoint a fair few expectant customers. Take time to inspect the display shelves stacked with various preserves and gourmet products, suggesting the kitchen indulges in rich ingredients. It’s a shame, then, that the staff, as polite as they are, prove ill-informed and seem not to have been trained for the job. Yet, if you can get round the fact that you won’t know for sure what’s been used to create your dish, you’ll award top marks to the flavours and presentation. And if they are all out of camel burgers, take heart in the knowledge that their other offerings are pretty good, too.

  • Would you go back to this restaurant? No

I went there with 7 of my friends last week and I was really disappointed. I ordered the lamb taguine and it was not even hot. I came before exactly a year ago, it was a wonderful experience and I've been dying to go there again. Where there any change in chefs??!!

My friend ordered pinacolada with soda as her drink but couldnt find any taste of soda and was not happy at all.

Half of the dishes were cold and we were not amazed by the food at all to the extent that we didnt order any desserts.

Three of my friends requested escalope and the waiter came back saying it was not available!!

I beg you Mr timeout duck meat lover, stop ordering duck meat in 1 - Italian, 2 - Arabic, - 3 - European. Restaurants. Because you will not be able to give the correct review and justice to the restaurant it self, as such : your above review seemed too personal and subjective about your impression about the staff and you mentioned nothing about the food which is duck and curry as usual .

I have been to this restaurant 3 or 4 times and I truly loved the tasty food as well as the wonderful service... The place is astonishing, especially the outdoor seating...
I loved it and I am now arranging to have special dinner for the whole family, 15 numbers, just because I loved it.
