After five years in Dubai, I started to get tired of Chinese food cooked by Philipino chefs, Iranian food cooked by Indian chefs and Italian food cooked by Arabs.
My expectations were not very high as I entered the Royal Buddha restaurant at Holiday Inn located in Barsha. I was pleased to know that their top notch Thai cuisine was delicately perfected by Thai chefs.
The lighting was dim, the music was authentic Asian and the center of the restaurant was marked by a large statue of Buddha. I was left breathless by my spicy king prawns which came along with Jasmine rice.
Royal Buddha is a perfect meeting point for business appointments, relaxing with friends or even for a date. In fact, it is especially suitable for an extra romantic date.
You would think this amazing food, friendly service and an ever so relaxing ambiance would cost you a fortune. Think again. The average three course meal ranges anything between AED 100 and AED 200.
In addition, they provide special offers such as Set Menu Fit for a Princess, costing AED 225, Set Menu Fit for a Queen, costing 275, and Set Menu Fit for a King, costing AED 325. All of which contain appetizers, main course and dessert for two.
Royal Buddha is definitely a restaurant that serves all of your senses along with your stomach.
