International Iftar at Movenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate (Review)

One always has a grand feeling walking into Al Bahou Restaurant at Movenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate, Dubai. The feeling was amplified when we visited them to preview their Iftar last week. The opulent setting was serene and beautiful, accompanied by soft traditional music.

The restaurant is known for hosting its lavish  Family Friday Brunch which is one of the best family-friendly ones to try in Dubai. And the Iftar buffet does not disappoint. The cuisine is international with an emphasis on the Arabian. So, you can find traditional Ramadan drinks such as laban and jallab. There is a live shawerma station and Arabic meat dishes such as Lamb Fatih pictured below. This was a very flavourful dish with yogurt, nuts, roasted lamb, and chick peas.

There was also a selection of grilled chicken and kebabs, and a range of hot and cold mezze and salads. The variety is truly international, as you can find Oriental dishes and sushi alongside Butter Chicken and biryani.

The desserts section served traditional Arabic sweets including Cheese Kunafa and Baklava. There's also a chocolate fountain and other continental desserts to suit your palate. I especially loved the warm Shahalab sprinkled with dry fruits. This a milk pudding with cinnamon flavour.

If you're going with kids, the good news is that the Camel Kids Club is open for kids to play in and do activities from 2 PM to 10 PM. Little Dude was with us and spent some time there!

Iftar at Movenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate will be hosted during Ramadan at Al Bahou Restaurant from sunset until 9 PM for AED 170 per person including food, water, juices, and and soft beverages. Kids between 6 to 12 years can dine for AED 85 per child, and kids under 6 eat free.

If you book before June 15, you can get a special price of AED 130 per person.
