Barbar is a favourite in Lebanon and has been open for more than 40 years. Its humble start was a small bakery in Hamra Street in the heart of Beirut but it quickly rose to fame for its manakish, shawarma and falafel. The restaurant’s sandwiches are also quite popular with signature offerings such as iconic Francisco, Philadelphia and more.

After opening in Dubai on Hessa Street, thousands have flocked to the restaurant night and day for the authentic Lebanese flavours. The new restaurant at Business Bay is just the start of its ambitious expansion plans with plans in place to launch in Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, Lusail in Qatar and Cairo in Egypt.
