Every Ramadan when Lal Qila has their special promotional offer giving 35% discount on buffet dinner, I make sure I visit the restaurant at least thrice in the month. The buffet dinner is served from 9:30 pm and because of its popularity, the restaurant is always full of people especially on weekends. Although one needs to wait for a few minutes before being seated inside the restaurant, the wait is worth the scrumptious food Lal Qila offers. The buffet includes an array of Pakistani, Arabic and Chinese food. The BBQ and all the Shahi items especially are extremely mouthwatering and delicious. Other specialities include the Cheese Naan and Shahi Kulfi! The restaurant offers a wide variety of food items and as it says, "Fit for the kings," it truly is!

Nobu - Atlantis

Planning for a rocking weekend, we thought of going to Atlantis for an exciting getaway. This is when we opted to dine at Nobu, a Japanese restaurant in Atlantis, The Palm. We had made our reservation earlier and on reaching the restaurant, we were greeted by a polite staff member and we had to wait for a few minutes before we finally got seated inside the dining area.

The ambiance was very nice with dim lights which made the entire setting extremely romantic. 

We ordered Salmon tarter Caviar, Spicy seafood soup, Shrimp tempura, Rock shrimp tempura, Shrimp and lobster salad with spicy lemon dressing, Roasted duck breast with Wasabi salsa along with Orange and pineapple juice. The food was really good especially rock shrimp tempura, which was amazing! After we were done with the meal, we ordered Nobu Cheesecake and Apple Tart. Loved both!!! In the end, we ordered coffee and were given complimentary boxes of chocolates from Bateel. The young lady who served us was extremely polite and lively and did a great job! 

Overall, our dining experience at Nobu was amazing!
