Al Andalus

Cooking up a storm of Arabic, Moroccan and Lebanese cuisine, its lamb mandi – tender lamb pieces served with rice – is a particular favourite here. The restaurant also regularly shows sports screenings to keep those eyes open while you eat your sahur. For something lighter, go for the hummus. 
Daily, 12noon-5am.
