Inspired by the warm and rich culture of the Levant, the 130-cover restaurant will serve a range of specials, hot and cold mezze, grills, and manakeesh
Al Khoory Hotels, part of the Al Khoory Group’s hospitality division, has announced the official opening of their second Al Baha Levantine Restaurant, which will be located on the ground floor of the recently opened Al Khoory Courtyard Hotel, located on Al Waha Street, off Sheikh Zayed Road.
Inspired by the warm and rich culture of the levant, the vibrant Al Baha Restaurant will provide guests with an authentic Levantine experience and feature everything from hot and cold mezze to various grills, manakeesh, and a delectable array of homemade desserts.
The menu has been developed and crafted by Chef Jamal, who has over 15 years of experience working in kitchens throughout the region. The Syrian national takes inspiration from his childhood growing up in Damascus, where he first found his love for different flavours and tastes thanks to the variety of traditional cuisine his mother and grandmother passed down from previous generations.
Jeff Isaacs, Hotel Manager, Al Khoory Courtyard Hotel, said: “Following the success of our first Al Baha restaurant at Al Khoory Sky Gardens, we’re excited about expanding to a new location in the Courtyard Hotel by offering diners the same tasty menu, mouth-watering flavours and high standards Al Baha has become renowned for.
“We have created a family-friendly atmosphere within the restaurant, the inspiration of which was taken from the warm and welcoming Arabic traditions. Diners will have every opportunity to sit back and relax with family and friends while enjoying some outstanding food.”
