If you’re staying in Dubai with family and friends, chances are that you’ll all have different ideas of what you fancy most for dinner. The answer, we think, is not to compromise but to choose somewhere where everyone’s wants are catered for. The Horizon Restaurant in the Amwaj Rotana Hotel & Resort provides just that, with a huge breadth of dishes on offer. Guests here are able to enjoy cuisines from each four corners of the globe, with a variety of buffet and live-cooking stations to take their pick from. If you’d like to get a taste of local life then head straight to the Emirati Corner, where you can watch chefs create traditional dishes before sampling their creations.
For those who prefer not to have to serve themselves – this could be a holiday you’re on, after all – then there’s also an a la carte option which allows for full flexibility on the dining front. On the table service menu, you’ll find family favourites like soups, sandwiches and salads, as well as more substantial mains. Choose from things like garlic and ginger buttered prawns, a carefully spiced biryani with raita and pickles or an indulgent steak and fries with a rich hollandaise sauce.
Pudding is also covered on the buffet stations, with a huge variety of sweets offered up. From jelly, ice cream and chocolate cake to fresh fruit, parfaits and puddings – this isn’t somewhere to stick to your diet. On the a la carte you can take things up a notch by ordering a date and toffee pudding with cream or a warm Um Ali bread pudding, which is served with pistachios and toasted almonds.
Open from 6.30am through to 10.30pm, you can dine at Horizon any time of the day, whether you fancy a quick bite from the breakfast buffet or want to settle in for an evening of a la carte.
