My review of Al Mayass – this is a restaurant that will definitely be serving an iftar feast during the days of Ramadan. I got to attend the preview and I must say it was not bad at all. There were many vegetarian dishes, and only a few meat dishes.
The first dish that I want to mention is the batinjan harr. This dish is an eggplant dish that has Arabic spices. The eggplant was so soft and it was cooked beautifully. The spices on the eggplant was flavourful.
Next dish that I really enjoyed was the shish taouk. The chicken was marinated perfectly and it was juicy, resulting in a very delicious dish for me.
Finally, I loved the osmaliyat al mayass dessert. The dessert was presented beautifully and it has vermicelli, clotted cream, and candy floss. I loved it because it was like a giant ice cream sandwich. It was not too sweet, and the cream was rich and the vermicelli balanced out the flavours of the cream.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 4/5.
I ordered the Iftar preview dinner which consisted of fattoush, tabbouleh, hummus, baba ghanoush, mutabal, zeitoun harr, moussaka al mayass, batata hara, batinjan harr, sujuk mekli, Ras asfour, shish taouk, kebab bi karaz, and osmaliyat al mayass.
The service that I received here was great. The servers were always around making sure that our drinks were full. The server was always serving food onto our plates, which was a nice gesture.
The ambience of this restaurant is beautiful and it is located inside the Sofitel Dubai hotel. The decor was modern and it was very classy.
