My review for Azalya – it is rare for me to have Indian dishes for brunch, but this place had a variety of other dishes in their buffet that were not as heavy for me to enjoy during brunch.
There was a station of Indian Street food, a large salad station, cheese and bread, hot foods station filled with various Indian specialties, Biryani, steamed dumplings, mexican station with chips and salsa, a live station making parathas, and of course a nice dessert station.
I loved the dumplings, but I could only have the vegetarian ones because the other set was chicken. The dumplings were soft and the filling was delightful.
The chips and salsa station was nice. We could create our own salsa with the different ingredients found here. I made my salsa more spicy because that is how I love it. This was a great light appetizer for brunch.
Finally, the dessert station was my go-to because I loved the sweet bread and the various cakes. The penne tone bread was wonderful and I love regular bread as it is, but this bread was just deliciously sweet. The mango strawberry cake and the pana cotta were my favourites.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 3.5/5.
I ordered the Friday brunch with house beverages for 249DHS.
The pricing of the brunch here was actually inexpensive than most brunches in town that includes house beverages.
The service was good where the servers were always walking around to make sure all of the tables were looked after.
The drinks did take some time to come to the table which was a bit disappointing.
The ambience was easy on the eyes with all of the warm tone colours. The buffet was set up nicely and when you first enter you see the Indian Street food station on the side. This restaurant is located inside the Melia hotel in the Bur Dubai area.
