Experience
Emirati Hospitality

The First Authentic Emirati restaurant since 1997
Welcome to
Arabian Tea House Restaurant

A journey into Dubai’s past could well begin through the door of a quaint tea house in the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood, once known as Al Bastakiya. As you step into the Arabian Tea House (although old-timers would still prefer to call it the Basta Art Café), you transported into the old times, authentic style with turquoise benches, white rattan chairs, lace curtains and beautiful flowers,  enjoying your cup of gahwa (traditional Arabic coffee) in the shade of an old tree and the languid air swoons around you, dreamlike, as if it were always afternoon.

Perfect spot for breakfast/lunch/dinner when you’re around that area in Al Fahidi/Souks. Nice ambience inside/outside and super nice staff. Food is very good, we had the beetroot salad, hummus, mixed barbecue and falafel. Very nice experience and always worth a visit!
