Family Eats: Iftar at Horizon, Amwaj Rotana

Ramadan is certainly a period of prayer and fasting. It is also about getting together with family and friends for Iftar. we usually have our Iftar at home, but sometimes, like to venture out for a change of taste.

We have always liked the Iftar presentation at Horizon, Amwaj Rotana Hotel located at Jumeirah Beach Residence, Dubai. The set up is very welcoming, the lighting soft, and the seating comfortable. It's a great restaurant to take your family to Iftar.

The spread is mostly Middle Eastern cuisine. We started our Iftar with dates and apricots and traditional drinks such as Jaleb, Laban, and Kamardeen.

There was an Asian salad station, and a variety of salads such as Hawaiian salad, Fattoush, Tabbouleh, Tomato & Mozzarella. They also had a station with Balqees honey in many varieties. 

For appetizers, we had Hot Mezze items like Kibbeh, Shawarma, and Fried Fish. This was served with roasted vegetables.

Among the main course dishes that I enjoyed, there was Chicken Harees, Chicken Tagine, Fish Biryani and Lamb Ouzi. The dishes were cooked well, and the variety was just enough that we didn't feel overwhelmed. 

In keeping with Middle Eastern menu, the desserts were mainly Arabic. The desserts spread was quite exquisite, with a lot to choose from. The highlight was the Turkish Delight in many flavours. Other traditional desserts included Umm Ali, Baklava, Awamah, Louqimat, Kunafa, and pastries. They also had fruits and cakes. 

Iftar at Amwaj Rotana Hotel costs AED 165 per person including beverages. Children between 6 to 12 years enjoy 50% off, and those below 6 years dine complimentary. They also have an early bird offer of AED 140 per person when booking 15 days prior to the date.
