I recently tried out their Pan Asian Night which included a buffet from China, Thailand, Japan and india.
Starting with some soups – there was a choice of hot & sour chicken soup and Lentil soup. The lentil soup was a bit thick but was great to along with some vegetable crackers and garlic crackers (Including in these were prawn crackers as well).
For starters, there were vegetarian and chicken spring rolls, vegetable pakoras and chicken lollipop. The most fascinating part comes here : A LIVE NOODLE STATION! Pick your choice of noodles, veggies, meat and look at it being prepared right in front of you! I chose for the yellow noodles along with some veggies and the result was fabulous! I loved these noodles and the flavors used to the next level.
The vegetable spring rolls were served along with chinese sweet and spicy sauce. The rolls were not at all oily and were delicious!
Continuing with this, there was a sushi counter with various flavors and great variety of salads to chose from. The variety here was huge, of course mostly non vegetarian but there were vegetarian sushis and salads as well which makes up a room for the vegetarians out there!
Coming to the Mocktails, cocktails and juices; we opted for a fresh orange juice and berry times 3 mocktail. The mocktail had a great taste as it had the combination of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries – the presentation and the taste was too good!
For the main course, there was wide variety of malaysian and indian dishes including, stir fried vegetables, butter chicken, fish mains, dal fry, steamed rice, biryani and much more!
We ordered for some mains in chinese and indian cuisines: veg fried rice, paneer tikka masala and gobi manchurian. The dishes came in a reasonable quantity enough for 2 people.
We were craving for some chinese; and gobi mancurian truely satisfied this craving! Less gravy & more towards dry – the dish was tasty and spicy!
The paneer in the gravy was soft and fresh which was the best part of the dish. The gravy was made with tomato gravy.
The desserts counter included various options such as indian sweets, cakes and creme brulee. The creme brulee was presented in a tiny bowl and had the perfect amount of sweetness.
Indian sweets included burfi, jalebi, gulab jamun, petha and much more!
We also tried their chocolate cake which was topped with chocolate sauce and strawberries. The cake was soft & moist and the tangy taste of strawberries helped balance the sweetness of the cake.
The place is a must visit if you are craving for various cuisines and also one of those romantic restaurant to relax while enjoying the panaromic view of Dubai.
