The all-day eatery is transformed into an Arabian retreat with indoor seating and a covered outdoor area with intimate majilises. Expect to break your fast with such diverse treats from the buffet as burgul
salad, beetroot mousse, pan-fried hamour with root vegetables, stuffed chicken
with cous cous and vermicelli rice. Offering more variety on the iftar menu are
Indian dishes like dal makhani (black lentils in a rich buttery gravy) and lamb
vindaloo (a spicy curry) as well as an Italian station for those who love their
pasta. They’ve also got a standout dessert section (all the more eye-catching
because of the three conical towers made out of dates on it) that includes chebakieh,
maamoul and katayef. Also, do try the sweet concoctions created by the hotel’s
very own camel milk mixologist, we loved the camel milk and strawberries
PRICE: From Dhs195++ per person for iftar buffet with beverages.
