Anyone have details about this place?

Leehov Kosher Restaurant and Dinner Show
https://www.leehov.ae/

Email didnít go through, no hechsher info on site
Kosher under EAKC supervision (chabad)

The restaurant is incredibly high standard and is highly recommended. I would venture to say itís one of the best Kosher restaurants in the world !

IMHO you can't compare a situation where a hotel discriminates between cc payment vs cash, or award vs cash, and one where hotel/government imposes a tax on all bookings / means of payments
