Samad Al Iraqi Restaurant

I've been to this restaurant and its amazing (well to me it is). Its different to the many "arabic food" joints in Dubai and offers an array of Iraqi Cuisine. Must give it a go. Will suggest a date if people are interested as we may need to book in advance as its always packed. Be warned!! You must turn up with an empty stomach as you are constantly fed... "Iraqi style" as my mother would say.
