It was a great pleasure accepting a Ramadan invite for Iftar from “Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana” at Horizon Restaurant and it was indeed a great experience. The Iftar Buffet setting at Horizon is not clustered, I like the idea that they set-up the main course counters at 3 locations, catering to the needs of diners who are spread-out till their lobby.

First being the starter or mezze (Hot & Cold) sections which has an array of what looks like over 12-15 menu items to get the Iftar started. There is everything from salty pickles to baba ghanoush, mixed salads, Kibbeh , spinach fatayer, cheese sambusak etc. What tempted me most was Eggplant moussaka in Oriental and Poached Gulf prawns Smoked salmon in International.

There is a soup and bread station (Oriental Pita was so good!). You can choose from a selection of lentil or clear chicken noodle soup. Also the Lamb ouzi with Oriental rice station is hidden beneath the staircase make sure to take a walk along the wide menu before fatoor (iftari)  so you would know where it’s placed.

Before you get too full on soup, don’t forget to get your own Shawarma, made fresh at the counter.

Syrian style Mix grill and falafel were prepared live along with the shawarma live station in the centre of the main dining chamber of Horizon. The chef is on hand to assist you with any menu choices that you might need to make and the junior chef will also assist you to pour in Tabouleh Rotana and Fattoush in bowls over the counters specifically made for these items.

Oriental & International Cuisine Mix Balance was another strength of menu at Horizon in Khalidiya Palace which we enjoyed over other After reviews we did.

Harees Chicken / vermicelli rice (Emirati style) Arabic Lamb shank Fasoulya, Chicken Frikkeh (Jordanian style), Kibbeh Bil laban & Baby marrow and vine leaves with lamb chops were all at par, I couldn’t decide which tasted better as they were all made to perfection.  Seafood chili, Cumin roasted potato, Steamed vegetables & Ratatouille in International cuisine has kept a great balance. I loved Grilled sherry Fish with honey mustard sauce.

Make sure you do not miss out on ‘the desserts counter’ as it is located at the end of the hallway. It has a large variety of desserts and was our favorite, you would find everything ranging from Arabic sweet (Um ali & Kunfa roll were tastiest) and a lovely cake selection I must say and the Blueberry panna cotta was to die for, our other favorites include Linzer Cake, lemon trifle in glass. Just in case you are not yet satisfies you can enjoy ice-creams in cone or cup which was equally enjoyed by kids and adults.

WOW Factors:

  • I simply haven’t had taste such tastier Lebanese salad “Fattoush” ever before. It is so aromatic and crispy with croutons. The Chef “Abu Halab” will make it just right in front of your eyes and will mix and toss it and you won’t just stop tasting on it.

  • The dates and nuts setting in the main lobby under giant Palm trees structure. Kudri Madeena and fresh red & yellow rotab was a treat to my taste buds.

  • Traditional dishes “carving” was another highlight of their menu for Kebbe sajiyeh & Chicken mousakhan rolls.
  • The Ramadan Drinks and Assorted Juices been places in circles, those who are following my reads know my favorite Ramadan drink, Jelab Thamar! Yes and it was best I got in Khalidiya Palace.DSC_0068
  • The involvement of Chef in the whole Iftar Buffet along with the staff and management was something really impressed me as its being so interactive.

All in all the food  we tasted at Ramadan After Buffet at Horizon – Khalidiya Palace is succulent and delicious, full of essence and made us happy 🙂
