Arabian Iftar at Al Ghurair Rayhaan (Review)

One of the first things that impressed me when I visited the Liwan restaurant at Al Ghurair Rayhaan by Rotana was the beautiful decor. We were there for Iftar, and the setting was just lovely in the backdrop of the sunset. I've written about Liwan once before and even then their decor and ambiance was wonderful.

We dined from a selection of Arabic and Indian food, including Lamb Ouzi, and Butter Chicken. There was even some sushi and maki in keeping with the international tastes in Dubai. The salad bar was vast with cold Arabic mezze, oriental salads, and a variety of dressings.

Notably, the freshly prepared Moroccan tea was a hit with the guests, and I too loved the sweet subtle flavor of the tea which is quite different from the Indian concoction we usually have. Also being served in food carts were Arabic coffee, and Kunafa dessert.

The live Arabic instrumental music gave the place a nice ambiance, and there was even a photo booth for those tempted to post social media updates!

Here are some highlights from our Iftar at Liwan:

A selection of dates and dry fruit to break the fast with.

Live traditional music 

The variety of salads included Arabic, oriental, and continental. 

Traditional Lamb Ouzi
The Moroccan tea was popular with guests.
Arabic pickles and spices.

Drinks served included traditional Jalleb and Amar Al Din.

Arabic and Indian buffet.

At AED 149 per person, the Iftar at Liwan is not heavy on the pocket, yet delivers a good meal, and much more. It is also suitable for families, and the atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable. Read more about their Ramadan offers on their website

We were invited to the restaurant for the purpose of review, but all views and opinions are my own.
