      Our Journey

      ON THE WOOD was founded in 2008 by the joint efforts of two Lebanese food lovers and an esteemed Emirati partner. ON THE WOOD was created following innovation and devotion. We’ve spent months of research and tasting and went to places far enough just to discover and add all the secrets of authentic Lebanese and Italian cuisines. We carried our concept all the way from birth to success in just devotion and authenticity which was a market need and now we are leaders in variety and innovations.

      First branch was launched near a university compound in Sharjah, UAE and after 13 years of perfection, product development and loads of hard work, we have successfully opened 11 branches in the United Arab Emirates, 3 branches in the Sultanate of Oman, and have set our vision to expand into the GCC, MENA and Global Markets.

      Concept Brief

      The concept is simply to create a cozy environment that is well suited to have a unique treat and enjoy a homemade bake serving and freshly prepared Manakish variety.
After 13 years of fine-tuning, product development and loads of hard work, we have established our reputation in creating the finest and most innovative Lebanese and Mediterranean pastry. Today we are considered as one of the market leaders in our field, hitting success after the other.
      Our wood stone oven and its technique is characterized by giving the flavor and quality, whereas we use the alternative technique in order to preserve our environment. We specialize in delicious & reasonably priced Lebanese cuisine, including our house of “Pastry” & authentic “Bakery” specialties, such Manakish, Lebanese appetizers and Lebanese Mashawi (Lebanese Grill).
