Feast is the Sheraton Grand’s all-day-dining restaurant. Located on the 6th floor of their flagship Sheikh Zayed Road hotel, the expansive, handsomely decorated restaurant is a maze of islands and cooking stations; each covering a different cuisine or category. So, you have part of an island dedicated to Indian food, another half to Arabian food, and another part to Asian, for which there is a live cooking station. Then there is a full island for salads, another for desserts…so on and so forth. It’s an impressive (if a little excessive) spread.
The food itself is of a very high standard. Although I am on a strict diet, I tried a nibble of as many things as I could from the delicious Malabar chicken curry to the hugely popular Lamb Ouzi, and many of their superb Levantine salads. Instead of the traditional Iftar Lentil Soup I had a bowl of their surprisingly authentic Egg Drop Soup from the Asian section and not one but two spring rolls (what can I say, I’m weak when it comes to Asian). I did not, however, give in to the temptation of dessert although my companion chomped, slurped and burped his way through enough sweets to make my blood sugar rise!
If the food was good, the service was even better. From the sweet young lady (Nina or Nita) who took my reservation to the absolutely wonderful Ramesh, the staff at Feast are fantastic – friendly, professional and hugely accommodating.
At AED210 per person, the Iftar buffet at Feast represents very good value for money. It’s certainly better than another similarly priced, all-day-dining restaurant I had Iftar at earlier in the week. Redeem an Entertainer voucher or a coupon of some sort and you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank. I have no reservations in recommending this restaurant.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
