JBR is full of restaurants and cafes but Dahleez is a special one. It is located on an upper floor (Above Burger Fuel to be exact) which means it is away from the traffic of JBR and it is really calm, especially indoors. The only down side of this is that Dahleez has no view.
There is seating inside and outside. The staff were very sweet and the selection of where we wanted to sit was open to where ever we decided. Instantly with settling down and being handed the menus, the water arrived which again, is a nice touch.
They have a good Menu with a wide variety and Shesha as well (both indoors and outdoors)
For lunch, I started with a Cream of Chicken Soup.
I have to admit, it really is one of the nicest Chicken Soups I have had. First of all, the Chicken is not cubes (as I general come across) but minced Chicken with chopped onion, and for some reason it really works. It is also a little salty. Not in a bad way but there is that little touch of salt flavor either from the Chicken stock or broth or something but it really is delicious, especially with lemon. I usually never add anything to Cream of Chicken soup but this one with Lemon is just really good. There is a good selection of soups on the menu but I have no heart to order something else instead.
For the main course, I ordered something called Chicken Special
A simple menu option saying Chicken Special, I think, is a waste for this dish because it certainly is a very nice idea! Essentially, the chicken is pan grilled around baby Tomatoes and topped with a white Mushroom sauce. When I first tried it, I adored the idea. It was a delicious dish but there were a few issues. The chicken was a little dry but not too much and also resulted in the Tomatoes squirting when trying to get off the sticks. The French Fries were ordinary, which with a little salt was nice. The vegetables were alright too, and could have used a little more steaming. Overall, the dish was good and the flavors were all there.
The dish is actually really filling! I was really hungry and after the second stick, I was pretty much done.
The Service: All staff were polite, attentive and quick to serve. There is sufficient staff to go around and I do like the fact there are supervisors or managers around at all times, it does give the impression they are all watched to maintain standards.
Value: 2 Starters, 2 Main dishes, drinks for two came up to a little over 100 Dhs. Being in JBR, with good service, good food, and a calm environment, it certainly is very good value. They are a member of Al Koufa group and they fall under the Al Multaqa Points Program which gives 10% of your bill as points which can be redeemed at any time against your bill. It is like a permanent 10% discount.
On Friday, they have a buffet for 35 Dhs only too!
