Ramadan seems to have sneaked up on us this year but Marriott Al Forsan was definitely prepared! I raved about the iftar at Khayal last year and I’m happy to report that they have maintained their excellent standards for the second year in a row. The decorations cover each corner of the restaurant and my favourite mosque minaret dessert tower made its grand appearance again this year.
As the first iftar of the season, a plate of ouzi is a right of passage! The lamb was beautifully cooked and the rice was full of veggies, nuts and crispy onion. This dish is a meal on its own. Next up: the Arabic and Indian selection. The pieces of grilled chicken shish tawook were tender and marinated well, and the butter chicken was creamy but packed a good bit of spice. I tried Syrian shakriyeh for the first time and I thought the yoghurt-based lamb stew was divine!
We didn’t even make a scratch on the Asian section as we had misjudged our portions but there was steamed fresh dim sum, Thai green curry, spicy nasi goreng, and a selection of sushi rolls. The grilled lamb at this section was marvelous - blink and you’ll miss it so make sure to find it!
International dishes such as pizza, pasta, beef bourguignon and fish stew were also available. I saw a few kiddy hands reaching in for seconds of the pizza.
I always get lost at the dessert station here as there is just so much to choose from: kunafa, baklava, sponge cakes, rice pudding, a PINK chocolate fountain with fruits, marshmallows and brownies to dip, tiramisu… the list goes on. Possibly a bit of a faux pax when there were so many Arabic sweets available but I had to have one of their freshly prepared crepes with white and milk chocolate. Added some extra sprinkles and a scoop of ice cream, et voila!
There’s nothing this iftar doesn’t cover. Whether you’re a seasoned iftar-goer or if it’s your first time, Marriott Al Forsan is a great option for the whole family. They are also well able to cater for larger parties so if you’re organizing a work do or get together, give them a ring!
