Millennium Plaza Hotel is conveniently located at the heart of Dubai’s business district on Sheikh Zayed Road. Furthermore, the metro station is just a few steps away, and a 5 minute ride can take you to Dubai Mall and the iconic Burj Khalifa.
Apart from the hotel being a great destination for travelers on business, or for tourists wanting easy access to the metro service for exploring the city, UAE residents like us can take advantage of Millennium Plaza Hotel’s scrumptious Iftar fare at at the aptly named Metro restaurant.
We were invited to the Media Iftar at Metro, Millennium Plaza Hotel last night, and had a wonderful evening.
Metro restaurant is an all-day dining concept located on the 5th floor of Millennium Plaza Hotel. With great views of Sheikh Zayed Road, Metro offers a lavish international buffet showcasing live cooking stations serving up made-to-order Asian stir-fries and desserts.
For starters, I was quite lost with all the options! With such a magnitude of choices, you really have to take a walk around to see everything on offer before loading the plate. Trying every single item on this buffet is next to impossible.
I was delighted to find a sushi section, and this is what predominated my first helping!
The Iftar menu focuses on many traditional Arabic Ramadan dishes, and includes favorites like the Kharouf (roasted whole lamb on spiced pilaf), a variety of Arabic salads, Harees (slow-cooked cracked wheat with meat), and Umm Ali (Arabic bread pudding).
The menu also includes a variety of Asian dishes. We loved the live Asian cooking station where you get to mix up your very own concoction of meats with noodles or rice.
From the buffet’s Indian flavors, we really enjoyed Metro’s sinfully rich Butter Chicken.
The buffet includes a number of continental dishes, and my daughter loved their Seafood Lasagna.
Those with a sweet-tooth will not be disappointed here. The dessert counter showcases an endless array of cheesecakes, tarts, puddings as well as a selection of traditional Arabic favorites.
Overall, an iftar at Metro restaurant in Millennium Plaza Hotel Dubai is an extravagant affair. With an endless variety of dishes to choose from for each course, there is something here to please every palette.
