Let me give my account of the Iftar buffet experience:
As soon as hubby and I entered, we were welcomed with a cup of Arabic coffee and dates.
As it was a media event, the place was too crowded and it took us a while to get a table. Once we were seated we immediately went and got ourselves Traditional cold drinks. The drinks were tasty and refreshing.
There was a counter for variety of bread as well as bread that was freshly being made in their open kitchen. Nothing can beat the aroma and taste of freshly baked bread. Al Maeda’s freshly made bread is a must-try.
Overall, we had a great dining experience at Al Maeda. Authentic and delicious Arabic food, impeccable service and gorgeous ambience. Al Maeda is a great option for Iftar during the holy month of Ramadan.
