The Arabic Word “Aseelah” means nobility and great heritage, and this is exactly what the Aseelah Restaurant which is located on level 2 of the beautiful Radisson Blu Hotel, strives for. From the gorgeous glammed up rustic interiors that portray a fusion of traditional and modern decor, to the delectable Middle Eastern Cuisine and highly courteous service, Aseelah serves the very best to its diners.
We Headed over to the restaurant last Thursday evening to try out their recently launched buffet and were pleased the moment we stepped into the spacious venue and relaxed ambiance. Greeted with a glass of fresh tamarind juice each as our welcome drinks, we didn’t waste a minute to move towards on the indoor buffet table which consisted of a lovely variety of Emirati dishes including soups, starters, main course options and a dessert bar. Moreover, the buffet spread outdoors on the terrace was even more interesting as it featured live grills, Ouzi and barbeque items, alongside a superb view of the Deira Creek area.
We savored quite a lot of the delicacies, from which we highly recommend the delicious lentil soup, the tasty kebabs, the perfectly cooked and authentic lamb ouzi, as well as the oven-cooked tajine. There’s a huge variety of cold mezze and wonderful salads too if you prefer to eat healthy. All in all, the buffet has something to suit everyone, be it fish, vegetables, meat, rice, and much more. You name it, they have it! The desserts too, were delightful till the last bite.
Overall, our dineout at Aseelah was pretty much awesome. Everything about the buffet and the service was absolutely phenomenal. So, if you ever want to experience a blend of Emirati culture and old school Middle Eastern flavors with a modern twist, Aseelah is where you should head down to without a second thought. A highly recommended dining affair, and a must visit if you fancy flavored Shisha and live belly dancing!
