Iftar at the Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa


arabian courtyard ramadan

This Ramadan, Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa, invites you to break your fast with a wide selection of Arabic and International delicacies at Al Khaimah Hall located on 1st floor where an iftar buffet is prepared by the property’s culinary experts.

Masood and I attended their pre-iftar dinner a few days ago, which is basically a mock-up of what is to be expected during Radaman.

The live chaat station which we really loved!

pani puri

Mouthwatering pani puri.

The live cooking station includes a chaat counter with pani puris, papri chaat, two varieties of tempered chana, mouthwatering onion pakoras, chilli pakoras, falafel, and spinach fatayer.

The other live cooking station was set in an adjoining open-spaced area and offers Pakistani and Arabic grilled meats.

Soup (lentil soup was served that evening) and bread.

The salad bar has several choices. As long as there’s choley and hummus, I’m a very happy person! The Hawaiian chicken salad is very good.

 dates for iftar

After a whole day of not eating and drinking, Muslims traditionally break their fast with a few dates and water. Nothing is more sweeter and pleasing to the tastebuds as these plump fruits at the end of the day.

juice bar

The juice counter — We tried the lemon juice and lassi.

main course

Main courses (that I remember): Plain rice, Afghani pulao, potato curry, vegetable qorma, butter daal, chili chicken (my favorite!), minced meat with peas, haleem, and a few other dishes.

desserts at arabian courtyard iftar buffet

The dessert & fruit section. There’s no picture of the dessert because we arrived late and it was almost finished! But we did taste the kheer and jalebi. Both were good.

      Hi Mica! Oh, that’s so sad. I was really hoping you were doing a stopover on your way to the UK. How about on the way back home? 😀

      Have a great time!

  2. like! wow, that seems to be a superb dining experience, my dear. i envy you, properly, ahaha. the place looks elegant in an understated way. and the foods look inviting, my mouth is watering. even the dates look succulent (and am not much for dates)… i like the chairs, they look comfy against the high ceiling – like that. and you sound like the experience exceeded your expectations, hihi. ikaw na… 🙂

      You haven’t had the best dates from the gulf yet that is why you think you are not a date person. Wait till we meet and I’ll give you the most succulent, perfect dates that you’ll absolutely love! 🙂

  3. btw, i’ve found out why and how my gravatar used to register differently here, haha.

      I’ve noticed that I post more about food during Ramadan, haha. Visit after iftar 🙂

      • Miss Maqsood says:

  7. 'liya says:

    Aww thank you for the nice mention! I was so excited I showed it to Vick 🙂 Actually when I first read the title of this post I was thinking that the name of the hotel sounds so familiar, I wonder if that’s where we stayed… guess my mind isn’t failing me that bad haha. Now Vick has promised me that he’ll help me with my new blog soon so you can update your link!!-I’m frustrated I haven’t gotten to it yet, we actually were travelling a little bit at the beginning of the month, to South Carolina, nothing exotic and far, but I feel stories piling up and need my outlet back!
    Ramadan Mubarak to both of you!
