It’s not just any regular buffet, it’s a feast! Having been their after being recommended by one of my friends, I can now very much vouch for this place. Trust me this isn’t a paid review nor was I given a complimentary meal.
We dined at the AB’s Absolute Barbecue located near Deira City Centre, Dubai. Before I rave about the food, let me warn you that prior table reservation is a must. While we had a reservation, we still had to wait for a little over than 20 minutes to get accommodated. We also noticed that families were in the waiting area for over 2 hours (and bet you totally worth it).
This unique themed barbecue restaurant, has a buffet menu with ‘all you can eat’ concept for just AED 85 per person on a weekend.
The centre of each table has two wooden slabs which opens into a barbecue pit which is then filled with hot charcoal. This is were starters were served. They have different options for vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians. A range of skewers of juicy and marinated shrimps, chicken, lamb, fish, paneer, mushrooms, brocolli and even pineapple!
Time for another warning: these are just starters and don’t you just fill yourself up with just these. Along with these unlimited starters, they also serve crispy, tangy and spicy corn.
Once you have survived through these delicious starters, its time to walk over to the live cooking station. You can pick your favourite mixes from the lot and they will prepare it for you. There’s another counter for all the chaat lovers as well, from dahi wada to pani puri they serve pretty much all our favourites.
Next round was the main course. Nalli nihari, butter chicken, chicken dum biriyani, grilled fish and then the mouth watering Srilankan crab curry. While on my way to pick up the main course, the display of desserts was quite tempting. I decided to save a little space in my tummy for desserts as well.
Let’s get to the desserts now. Though the options were immense, I being a loyal chocolate lover opted for Choco lava cake, Tiramisu, Vanila icecream with oreo bisuits, Date and walnut pudding and angoori gulab jamun! I was not quite impressed by their mango shrikand and ghewar rabdi. But it was all a give in, considering all the others we tried. We decided to close the account with a kala khatta and some salted lemon for three hours of hogging that we did.
Cost for 2: AED 170
