Highly Commended Best MENA 4 Comments
- Picture 1 of 2
With its terrace offering expansive views of the creek along with a sleek, high-end dining room, Café Arabesque offers a suitably plush setting for the posh Park Hyatt’s Middle Eastern restaurant. Unusually, on Thursdays and Fridays the restaurant offers a large dinner buffet of Lebanese, Jordanian and Syrian inspired dishes, plonked unceremoniously in the middle of the room. As with most buffets, the fact that food is allowed to sit has a detrimental effect on the standard. Nonetheless, the dessert section is extensive and impressive and doesn’t suffer from its environment. Things are better with the à la carte menu – the grilled lamb, chicken and fish are all well cooked, tasty and fresh. Service is also excellent although there was a delay between walking in and being seated. Overall, while slightly overpriced for the buffet, it’s a great environment and if you stick to the à la carte menu, the food’s also very good.
