Dusit Thani, the 65 year-old five star hotel chain hailing from Thailand, has been a part of the UAE hospitality scene for nearly a decade now. Renowned for their service and delicious meals, I was quite excited about trying out their Iftar buffet last night.
The Iftar buffet at Dusit Thani has been set up on the 24th floor of the hotel with spectacular views of the Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai. The menu is predominantly Middle Eastern adapting to the theme of Ramadan.
To break the fast, there is a large counter showcasing a variety of dates as well as other dry fruits. A small cup of Arabic kahwa (black Arabic coffee) goes wonderfully well with nibbles of fine date.
The buffet also has a wide variety of traditional appetizers often found on an Iftar table. From Arabic kibbeh to deep-fried pakodas, guests were spoilt for choice with all the options.
The buffet includes a live shawarma stand, and let me tell you the ones here are absolutely divine!
For drinks, the buffet includes orange juice, a traditional rose-flavored drink, and an Arabic yogurt drink.
Here is a look at some of the delicious dishes that were on offer last night:
For AED 149 a head, the Iftar at Dusit Thani is very generously loaded with a variety of dishes. The service is immaculate, with staff regularly upping our water and changing the plates as needed. Moreover, you can really have your fill of flavorful, deliciously cooked traditional Arabic dishes. Don’t forget to try their Thai curries too! They were definitely my favorites for the night.
