The grand Imperium serves a wide range International cuisines for breakfast, dinner and weekend brunches. With crystal chandeliers, gilded columns and a terrace offering superb views of the sea, it’s a fabulous venue for any time of day or occasion. Set in the grand Imperium restaurant, the hall is bedecked with chandeliers and marble walls, and despite the laid-back jazz in the background, it has the look and feel of a royal dining room. The band plays popular numbers at the front of the restaurant, giving guests a musical welcome as they arrive. The hall has views that look out over the hotel’s garden and towards the waters of The Palm, which is an ideal setting during the cooler winter months.
To start with the Salads, it was a tasty spread of most of my favorite ons. Rocca Leaves, Lettuce, Red Cabbage etc with the most delectable dressings.
The Cold Mezze was a tasty spread with Hummus, Moutable, Baba Ganoush, Hummus with Pomegranate Seeds etc.

Mixed Grilled Vegetables, all sauteed and grilled, delicious spread of colorful vegetables.
Creamy Mashed Potato, this one was my favorite, the potatoes all creamy and juicy.
Pan Fried Salmon & Fennel Coulie, i was in love with the salmons, so perfectly done and the little spices used was infused till the last bite.
Lamb Ouzi, These dish is usually made with rice, meat, vegetables, and a mixture of spices. The spices used are largely responsible for its taste, these are generally black pepper, cloves, cardamom, saffron, cinnamon, black lime, bay leaves and nutmeg. The main ingredient that accompanies the spices is the meat. The meats used are usually chicken, goat, lamb, camel,beef, fish and shrimp. The spices, rice and meat are augmented with almonds,pine nuts, peanuts, onions and sultanas. A popular way of preparing meat is called mandi. This is an ancient technique that originates in Yemen, whereby meat is barbecued in a deep hole in the ground that is covered while the meat cooks.
The Lamb Ouzi at Imperium was so delicious and the flavor of the rice was done by the lamb itself, all juicy and meaty. My personal hit.
Chicken Gravy, a light chicken based gravy with tomatoes and potatoes, a delicious dish and best served with rice.
As i always have space for Desserts, this place has served the most delicious ones. The spread was Balorieh, Balal El Sham, Baklava etc.
The next section was Plum Tart, Lemon Meringue Cake, Hazelnut Chocolate Cake, Orange Roulade, Passion Fruit Cake etc. It was a delicious treat to oneself.
We also have the Arabic Coffee, it was refreshing and a must needed after after fasting.
Overall my experience was so delicious. The Iftar cost AED 190.
