Arabian Iftar at Kempinski The Palm

I can't believe it is already 12 days into Ramadan! We don't venture out for Iftar much except occasionally, and our recent Iftar meal was at the lovely Layali Tent at Kempinski The Palm, Dubai.

This is the first time I had Iftar in an air conditioned tent, which are seen around Dubai hotels especially when Ramadan falls in the summer. The setting was cool and cozy, and the soft lighting created a calm ambiance, complemented by the live Arabic music.

In the menu are all the Arabic favourites, as the buffet stayed true to the Middle Eastern theme. Fresh Saj was prepared with zaatar and cheese fillings. The pre-prepared Shawarma was warm and soft unlike some of the chewy versions I've had at many places.

After breaking fast with dates, apricots, and figs, there were the traditional drinks - rose milk, qamardin, jallab, and laban.

The cold and hot mezze were on spot, and the main dishes included lamb ouzi, harees, kibbeh with labneh, vermicelli rice, kebabs, and sheesh tawouk. The buffet was not overwhelming,but satisfying for an Iftar.

The desserts featured many Arabic favourites inclufing baklava, luqaimat, umm ali, basbousa, kumafa, and aish al saraya. There were cakes and mousse too.

In all, we had a wonderful Iftar and the place was family friendly as well (ask for a high chair in advance if you need one).

The Iftar buffet at Kempinski The Palm is AED 185 per person, from sunset until 9 PM. For ten guests or more, there's a special price of AED 170 pp. Their Suhoor is on from 10 PM to 3 AM on 
minimum spend of AED 95 pp. For bookings, call +971 44 44 2000 / 056 179 5540 or email [email protected]

We were invited to review this Iftar, but all view and opinions are my own.
