Fadi Safadi, CEO of Al Safadi, said: “We have always intended to open a branch in Abu Dhabi, and we waited patiently for the right time and the perfect location. Al Qana offers a unique blend of design, waterfront views and exciting attractions, making it an ideal setting for our expansion. We firmly believe that our presence in Abu Dhabi will complement our Dubai operations by offering a delightful dining option for our Dubai customers visiting the capital and our Abu Dhabi patrons who frequent our branches in Dubai. We are excited to contribute to Abu Dhabi’s flourishing culinary industry and showcase the true essence of Lebanese cuisine. With Al Safadi at Al Qana, we invite our customers to embark on a culinary adventure that will transport them to the heart of Lebanon.”
The new Abu Dhabi branch will be overseen by the same dedicated operations team in Dubai, ensuring a consistent experience across locations. Furthermore, the group’s executive chef, Omar Harbaly, who has managed the kitchen operations at Al Safadi for the past 23 years, will provide his expertise and guidance.
