Burj Al Arab is the world 7 star hotel and located at it’s own manmade oasis. How cool is that? So cool that we had to make a lunch reservation at their Al Muntahar Restaurant situated on the 27th floor. The Hotel itself is luxurious looking with drop dead gorgeous background of the oasis. The hotel is equipped with dancing fountain and huge aquarium adorning the lobby deco.
We had a 1.30 reservation for lunch and we had to give our reservation number to the guard outside otherwise u will not be allowed to enter unless paying a fee of around 70 usd. We then proceed to take the lift to the 27th floor. The hotel staff were really friendly and so does the restaurant crew. They were all professionally trained and we had a very good service.
Our menu on that day consist of fish n chips for the kids, starter or scallop and lobster terrain, main course for hubby veal fillet with mushroom and barramundi fish topped with caviar for me and for dessert cappuccino and café latte with ice cream and chocolates. I have to admit the meal was good but the portion is small but hey..what do I expect? It is a fine dining restaurant after all..the westerner would have ordered a 6 to 9 course lunch but we..malaysian just ordered a 3 course lunch..hahaha.
Apart from the OTT Expensive price of the food we had a once in a lifetime experience. Hubby on the other hand had to fork out Aed 1300 or equivalent to RM1300. We were not at all shocked cos we knew even before making reservation that is the price u have to pay for wanting a treatment like the king and queen of Arabia..hahaha..
After much photography session we took a cab to Dubai Mall and meet with Mr Wahab from Pakistani who were kind enough to provide us with his villa while in London. We went back to the hotel at around 10 and ordered Chix Beriani for dinner. Well the lunch did not last us till breakfast the next day.hahahaha.
