Bahrain’s dining scene was growing, but lacked variety. In between the fine dining restaurants and fast food chains, our founder Mr. Rashed Hilal envisioned a neighborhood restaurant offering a diverse selection of local and international dishes in a refined setting. Al Abraaj was thus born in Sehla, Bahrain.The idea behind the concept was simple but effective; everything was to be freshly prepared, delicious, and affordable in a refined setting.
Al Abraaj rapidly grew in popularity, expanding to multiple towns and malls. Today, Al Abraaj is a household name in Bahrain with a reputation for delivering excellence in the casual dining segment.
The success of Al Abraaj inspired the group to launch eight unique dining concepts catering to various culinary tastes: Al Bindaira, Nu Asia, LUMEE, YaSalam!, OTTO, Mashawi Al Abraaj, TCBY and most recently, San Carlo.
Al Abraaj group is widely recognized as a family business pioneering excellence in the F&B sector, with over 40 outlets, cafes, a catering division, and a workforce of over 1200 employees. The philosophy at Alabraaj Group is simple: delicious food, in a mix of contemporary and traditional settings, catering to various audiences at a suitable price.
