The Lebanese dining institution has opened in Dubai in partnership with Kitch, a regional hybrid F&B operator.

The venue occupies an area of around 600sq m on Hessa Street, and offers both dine-in and takeaway options with delivery available soon. The menu will include firm fan favourites such as shawarma, falafel, grills and the brand’s famous Francisco sandwich.

Barbar’s presence in Dubai is expected to be game-changing for the region with a late-night dinner experience and shawarma ready for cravings. The brand’s culture of family and loyalty sits firmly at the heart of the restaurant and ensures that customers experience the same warm welcome in Dubai as they do in Beirut.

Mohammad Al Ghaziri, Founder of Barbar, commented: “After 40 years of success in Lebanon, this is an incredibly exciting time for Barbar as we expand internationally with Dubai being our first destination. Introducing our street food to Dubai’s foodies is a great first step to expanding further within the Gulf region.”
