Its already the last week of Ramadan and we wanted to visit a restaurant for Iftar before the holy month ends and so we made a reservation at Diwan Al Hana. While driving on Sheikh Zayed Road, we have always passed by the restaurant and finally we got the chance to visit the restaurant for the first time and try their Iftar buffet.
Conveniently located on Sheikh Zayed Road, Diwan Al Hana is an authentic Syrian restaurant. It offers traditional Syrian and Arabic cuisine. Open from early in the morning till late in the night, Diwan Al Hana serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The two-floored restaurant is spacious with a blend of modern and traditional decor. We liked the beautifully tiled walls and the floor, funky wooden furniture, dim lighting, open kitchen and gorgeous tableware. It has an inviting and very friendly vibe.
For this holy month of Ramadan they’ve a special Iftar where soup, cold mezze, appetizers, Ramadan drinks and hot beverages is served on the table and for main course and desserts they’ve a buffet.
Our table had all the Iftar essentials like Water, Ramadan drinks like Jallab, Qamar El Din and Ayran, Dates and Dry Fruits.
We could choose between Lentil or Broccoli Soup and we chose the nutritious Broccoli Soup. Next they got us a range of Salads and Cold Mezze.
There were salads like Fattoush, Tabouleh and Beetroot Salad. The salads were fresh and light. The cold mezze or appetizers consisted of Hummus, Mutabal, Mohamara, Vine Leaves stuffed with rice and Foul Mokalla. The delicious and flavorful cold mezze was our favorite, we loved it.
Wholesome and tasty Fatteh Makdous was served on the table. It had eggplant filled with lamb meat, crispy bread, tomato and topped with tahini sauce and ghee.
After this, we moved on to the buffet and helped ourselves to Kebbeh, mini Fatayer, Burak Cheese and Fatteh.
Mixed Grill, Full Lamb, Friekeh Meat, Chicken Biryani, Chicken Kabseh, Basha O Asakro, Samakaharah, Vermicelli Rice and Quater Cheese Pasta were the main course dishes in their Iftar buffet. It was a good selection as there was something for everyone.
The dessert selection was small and we liked the well-made Wardat Ashta and Katayef. For the health conscious there was Fresh Fruits.
We ended our Iftar with a refreshing pot of Moroccan Tea.
We enjoyed our Iftar experience at Diwan Al Hana. The food, the service and the atmosphere was good.
