Making it in the F&B industry is not easy, given the abundance of culinary options available to consumers across Dubai covering nearly every global cuisine. However, Orfali Bros Bistro restaurant at wasl51 is the success story of three chef brothers from Syria inspired by the delectable world of food, art, travel, and culture, and who work together to create a genuinely unique dining experience. The restaurant’s culinary style defies categorisation, which resulted in the restaurant winning several awards, including the best restaurant in the Middle East & North Africa 2023, in a list that features the MENA’s 50 Best Restaurants.


Orfali Bros Bistro restaurant is a distinctive neighbourhood eatery that has captured the imagination of Dubai’s multicultural residents and food-loving visitors from across the globe with its combination of tradition and technique and its simultaneous nods to nostalgia and progression.

The three Orfali brothers get playful with ingredients from their own culture while infusing them with some other cultures. The restaurant is a playground where they merge Aleppian and other food cultures on the plate. For them, no rules apply to their kitchen, no boundaries limit their creativity, and no borders obstruct their exploration.


The brothers also wanted an open kitchen to reflect their belief in a borderless world, enabling customers to be seated facing the kitchen and have a sense of dining inside it.

One of the most popular dishes at the restaurant is The Eat H, which is a fusion of the Aleppian, Armenian, Kurdish and Turkish ways of preparing bulgur wheat with tomato — and a perfect representation of the Orfali family origins. Orfali Bros Bistro restaurant is located at wasl51, a mixed-use development featuring a stunning array of modern, contemporary apartments, villas and retail plazas, which offers a balance for tenants looking to live in the elegant Jumeirah while enjoying the buzz of urban lifestyle.
