Maraheb restaurant and Global Village claim the “Longest Line of Mandi” and “Largest display of Mandi” as part of Global Village’s 25 record-breaking attempts for its 25th anniversary celebration

Dubai, UAE: Global Village, the UAE and wider region’s leading multicultural family destination for culture, shopping, and entertainment, has claimed two more Guinness World Records™ titles, moving ever closer to its Silver Jubilee Season target of 25 titles. When longtime partner Maraheb restaurant proposed two new record attempts to mark their 10th anniversary, Global Village was delighted to add these records to the list of 25 record attempts planned for the Silver Jubilee Season. 

“When our valued partner came to us with an idea to showcase their restaurant with a world record, we were more than happy to provide our support in bringing this project to life,” said Khadija Khalifa, Senior Director – Commercial & Sponsorship Global Village. “Collaboration with our partners has always been the key to success at Global Village and these records are symbolic of what we can achieve together. Over and above claiming two new Guinness World Records™, we were able to donate 4880 Mandi meals to families in need. We are grateful to be able support our community during these challenging times.”

The restaurant is mainly known for its speciality in Mandi dishes, with the traditional Yemeni favourite becoming symbolic with the brand.
