Iftar at the Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa
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 were invited to their pre-iftar dinner a few days ago, which is basically a mock-up of what is to be expected during Radaman.
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.
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.
The iftar buffet costs AED 75 per person.
The Arabian Courtyard and Spa is located just opposite to the Dubai Museum. And with all the beautiful antiques and paintings displayed all over the place feels like a museum too!
Travel blogger ‘liya and her husband stayed at this hotel when they visited Dubai (was it two years ago?). This couple has travelled far and wide, and are one of the sweetest people Masood and I have ever met.
Located in downtown Bur Dubai, the Arabian Courtyard represents the true warm hospitality of the Arabian feel. Free valet parking will be offered to all guests. For reservations and group bookings, please call +971 4 351 9111 or send an email to [email protected]

What a nice place! Hoping to visit Dubai real soon. The plan to do a stopover there didn’t push through as I booked with a different airline hehe
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!
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… 🙂
kumusta, hope you are well, Nadia. 🙂
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! 🙂
btw, i’ve found out why and how my gravatar used to register differently here, haha.
my bad, am too clever, haha. waving… 🙂
Haha … happened to me too 😀
let me be a pasaway and say that the waiter is good-looking, ahaha. 😉
If I get the chance to visit this hotel again, I’ll let him know this 😉
I couldn’t attend this. Great to read up on your post. Ramadan Kareem to you and your family Nadia:)
Thank you, Ishita!
Ramadan Mubarak Nadia Bajiiii!!
Your post looks soo yumm yumm! But seriously you shouldn’t post about food stuffies during Ramadan..poor people who come to your blog while fasting…sabr ka imtehan hojata 😛
Ramdan Mubarak to you too, Miss Maqsood!
I’ve been told it’s raining cats and dogs in Hyderabad. Thandey rozey … I’m so jealous 😀
I’ve noticed that I post more about food during Ramadan, haha. Visit after iftar 🙂
Yup, I heard about the pleasant weather in Hyderabad, but I’m here in Riyadh enjoying Arabian Ramadan after two or three years 😀
Lol I mentally made a note to myself after this post , not to visit your blog before iftar 😛
Oh, so you are in Riyadh, mashaAllah! How long will you be there for? Too bad they have made umrah this month almost impossible to go, otherwise we should have met.
I’ll be here for a week,maybe, then back to the pavilion. Insha’Allah 🙂
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!
You are most welcome, ‘liya!
Yep, your memory served you right. You are way to young to be forgetting places and names, hehe. Somehow, I always associate this hotel with you and Vick now 😀
You really MUST bring your website up now. I miss reading your travel stories!
hello, thanks for the visit and the kind message. ahaha, you’ll prepare two kinds of dates for me, hehe. would love that. throw in some pani puri, too. they look really delicious, dear. 🙂
have a restful and fun weekend. i’ll remember the banana cake and the strawberries, haha. waving… 🙂
You are most welcome, ‘San! Just come on over … I’ll make sure you’re always stuffed with good food 😀
Yum! Everything looks amazing, but the baskets of fruit put it over the top for me. Sounds like you guys had a great time mA! 🙂
Masood and I had a great time eating the choley chaat and pani puris!
Ramadan Kareem , Nadia! 🙂 the gol gappay sure look delicious.
Ramadan Kareem, Pervisha! Our iftari here today is very typical Pakistani one: choley chaat, dahi barey, fruit chaat, onion pakorey, and Rooh Afza.
We had gol gappey and ganney ka juice at a restaurant last night 😀
oh my God, its been ages since I had gannay ka juice! yummmy yaaar 😮
Me too! It tasted so good, but definitely not as delicious as the ones served in Pakistan ke road side pe 😀
The food looks delicious! May I ask, what is a chaat station? I miss Indian/Pakistani food!
Londoneya, a chaat station is like a snack bar that serves typical Indian/Pakistani snacks, like the pani puri mentioned above.
Hiya! 🙂 guess who I am 😉
And if I do, am I allowed to say your name here? 🙂
No 😛 i guess u guessed me? aoo jhappi dalein phir!
Yep, I know who you are 😀
