Our restaurant will charm you with its exotic ambience and authentic Arabic dishes prepared by our talented chef Abu Halab and his team. Freshly handpicked ingredients enhance the modernity and taste of the traditional plates that leave flavours to remember.


“Kamoon”, an Arabic word for cumin, is an original restaurant that surprises and makes you discover true Arabic cuisine with a modern twist. Various dishes have been awarded with gold medals, but the best reward and testimonial to the food quality are definitely guest’s compliments and praises.


“The Kibbeh, a traditional Arabic deep fried minced meat starter, was my favourite of all the appetizers. It’s the best tasting kibbeh that I’ve had, the quality is amazing, and the ingredients and spices are just on point”, said Mizra Al Hosani, guest and blogger for sweetlifeinthesandpit.com.


The success of Kamoon could not have been possible without the great talent of Chef Abu Halab, a man passionate about cooking since he was 9 years. New innovative dishes re-created into unique heightened, exotic and fresh tastes is what makes Kamoon quite unique. The plates are prepared on the spot, with the traditional Middle Eastern way of cooking that goes back to deep-rooted Arabic cuisine.


“I take enormous pride in the ethnicity of my local and regional cuisine and at the same time I adapt and develop the flavours with my own unique touches and ingredients”, said Kamoon’s Chef Abu Halab.


Nowadays Abu Halab is well known and recognized for his talents. He made several TV appearances and gave interviews, the latest being the one for “Al Hurra TV” in October 2015, and keeps charming food enthusiasts. He is present during major events where he cooks for significant people. The most recent example is the world powerboat championship held in Abu Dhabi in November 2015.


Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana is more than honoured to work with a great expert that has such great character and an engaging personality that allows him to treat his team and guests as family. His passion is often shared with others as he regularly opens the doors of the kitchen to the curious children and adults. He likes to meet his guests and personally ensures that they are fully satisfied.


Kamoon is definitely a place to enjoy the magnificent terrace and unbeatable outdoor view. After dinner, you can stay and enjoy the shisha or walk around the outdoor dining space which includes a small grass area for the children to play around. Relax in this beautiful setting while enjoying a delicious meal that will amaze you with its many flavours.


“The food and ambiance at Kamoon really won me over, and I would happy come back. A great spot to enjoy a nice hearty meal with family, friends or lovely dinner date spot, and I would also really recommend it for Abu Dhabi tourists and visitors since the cuisine is authentic Arabic and the view is incredible”, said Mizra Al Hosani.
