The cult Saudi Arabian restaurant Al Baik is coming to Abu Dhabi

The new Al Baik venue in Abu Dhabi will be the biggest in the UAE.

Al Baik is coming to Abu Dhabi: The news that all chicken lovers of the capital have been waiting for is now announced.

Yes, the legendary cult Saudi Arabian restaurant will be serving its famous 18-spice coated chicken in Al Wahda Mall after Al Baik hoarding was spotted in the Downtown shopping mall.

While no date has been set for the new Al Baik restaurant, the new venue looks set to be the biggest in the UAE being spread of 9,500 square-feet meaning there will be no epic queues (hopefully) for some tasty meals like the chicken fillet nugget meal and the Big Baik spicy sandwich.

The Al Wahda Mall Abu Dhabi branch will be Al Baik’s fifth restaurant opening in the UAE with two venues in Dubai; The Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Mall; and in the City Centre Ajman shopping centre.

The franchise recently opened a venue at the Al Majaz Waterfront on the Sharjah Corniche.

Having first served UAE residents at a pop-up at Expo 2020 Dubai, Al Baik has been operating in Jeddah since 1974 and has more than 100 branches in the Kingdom.
