Barbeque Nation is a well established restaurant chain India and they opened their outlet in Dubai for all their loyal fans in here. The concept is having live grill table where we can grill non-veg and veg skewers right in front of us. Also they have various live counters for chaats, noodles, soups and a decent buffet spread.Though we went on a weekend , the customer service was pleasing even after being a bit crowded.
We started off with our drinks and we opted for pacific blue. It was quite a refreshing one and I bet its good for the scorching summer season. They introduce different themes throughout the year and it was mango fest when we dined in there.
Among grills, I loved the shrimps which was perfectly marinated and cooked and also the mushrooms. They also serve some starters like chicken wings, kebabs and cheesy potatoes to our table. The cheesy potatoes is one of the favorite starter with a twist of spiciness and crunchiness together.
One of the unique station in here was customized soup station were we could choose our ingredients and make the soup to our liking. Similarly a live counter for noodles too. Another live station worth mentioning is the keema pav station. It really gave us some nostalgic memories
Moving on to the main course, We were almost full by the time we reached here after all the grills, starters and live counters for noodles and soups. I tried out the mutton biryani here. It was super yum with mutton cooked to perfection.
They did not let us down even at the dessert counter. The gulab jamuns here is highly recommended and not to be missed at all. It is so delectable. I also loved the shahi tukdas. Thanks Barbeque nation and Ms Nihara for a wonderful weekend dinner.
Verdict: A pocket friendly buffet and grill restaurant which serves yummy food at the same time.
Sahara Grill, one of the renowned brands from UK famous for serving halal steaks and grills since 2004 opened their doors to Dubai foodies In The Mall, Jumeirah. This is the fourth branch after the success of the first three branches in UK. The outlet has a stunning view of Jumeirah beach hotel and Burj Al Arab .The tables are spaced well apart with a spacious dining area and the ambience is pretty pleasing with contemporary interiors.
I was invited by Team Azurblue for a bloggers meetup last weekend and got to meet and greet some energetic bloggers in town.
Some fresh juices were served on to our table to welcome us and we decided to go with watermelon and orange juice.
Moving on, we started off with some of their signature appetizers; The chicken buffalo wings and lamb chops and it was just mind blowing. The dips were perfectly complementing it.
Then came the main course. I loved the grilled salmon. It was tender soft and the sauce accompanying it had a flavor of garlic and cream and I quite enjoyed it. Next was a beef steak. The steak was a bit dry but the addition of the sauce made it lip-smackingly yummy. The chicken steak was quite ordinary though.They served some rice and roasted corns as sides to have with it.
The desserts were the best section among all. I still can’t stop thinking about the kunafa icecream. The combination was out of the world. Will be definitely going back to have more. The roasted vermicelli on top well suited with ice cream.
Two other desserts were tiramisu and chocolate temptation. Tiramisu was soft and yummilicious. Being a chocolate lover chocolate temptation pastry was another delight to us. Thanks to the team Azurblue and Sahara Grill for inviting me over.
Verdict: All the dishes served were delicious and class, but a bit of confusion among the employees could have been eliminated to make the experience more wonderful.
