Al Amir has been around for many years and it's been around because of the great entertainment it provides and the fabulous food. The people who have written in with negative reviews are usually the people who have issues everywhere they go. The owner is the nicest guy you ever want to meet and the atmosphere takes you away to another place in time. Make up your own mind and enjoy the ambiance of Al Amir, fantastic food and amazine belly dancers who are the best in Texas!!
My boyfriend and I had to pay a $20 PER PERSON cover charge at the door. Our friends made reservations for us & we had to show up about an hour late. We only came to eat, not to dance. We explained this even to the owner & they still made us pay $40 just for a cover charge for 2 people. The food was mediocre & the doorman was extremely rude. We will never return to this place.
I've been a customer at Al-Amir for over seven years. The staff is professional and curteous, and the owner and manager are always present to ensure there are no problems. I have become friends with several of the staff and the owners as well. I read some of the other reviews and hope to address some of the concerns - there is no VIP ticket at Al-Amir, so the claim that the VIP card wasn't recognized is a bluff. The guy at the door is a little snappy, but he cannot distinguish between someone who really had a promise for a discount or the MULTIPLE people who claim that they were supposed to receive a discount (when in reality they simply don't want to pay). As far as loading your own shisha, that won't be allowed in Al-Amir nor any other hookah bar (I can vouch because I worked at one all through college) because of the liability; how is the business supposed to know whether the substance is legal or not?
Overall, this is an excellent business. There is a new location in Addison which is even more amazing and it has not been affected by the recent smoking ban in Dallas (there are no more hookahs indoors in the Dallas location). The bellydancers are awesome, the drinks are a little pricey but still awesome.
They are cheap and rude. I had real bad experience at Al-amir. I was there to attend an after event party and being the VIP ticket holder we were told entry fee is waived. When we got there, about 30 people were there but they charged entry fee to every one of us. The guy at the front register was very rude. He don't wanted to hear anything or waist anytime. It was like pay or leave, don't argue. So, we paid. Their $10 was more important than our $50 on food for two. The worst part is Owner was there too and he didn't do anything. All of my friends over there had the same feeling and we don't wanna see those cheap and rude people again.
