Step back in time to an era where it all began where luxury and Arabian hospitality were one and the same, where visitors from all across the seven seas travelled for days just for a glimpse into the glorious life at Qasr Al Sultan – the sultan’s palace. So leave the busy city far behind, as you enter a world of magic, fantasy and true Arabian hospitality at Qasr Al Sultan. It’s more than just a meal, it’s your glimpse into life like a Sultan.
Dining is truly an experience at Qasr Al Sultan. The chefs draw on the cuisines and ingredients from the region and will regale you with their unrivaled prowess, practicing culinary techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation.
The sultan’s palace is one that is majestic and breathtaking at every corner, but the most splendid part? The food. With private seating areas perfect for an intimate meal as well as family friendly seating options, there’s no better place to indulge in a culinary journey across the breadth of Arabia.
As we made ourselves comfortable we were entertained with live music from some really talented singers and musicians on board.
We were served Hot and Fresh Lentil Soup from the house which tasted so refreshing after a long tiring day at work.
From the Cold Mezze we were served
- Yogurt with Cucumber
- Mixed Pickles
And Hot and Fresh Breads.
From the Hot Mezze we were served Fried Kibbeh, Falafel, Cheese Roll, Spinach Fatayer and Sambousek Fatayer.
Everything tasted so delicious, fresh and presentable.
I went with the fresh Orange Juice for my palette cleansing and it really helped a lot fir my next course of meal.
Here comes the Mixed Grilled Platter served with Kebab Kofta, Shish Taouk, Lamb Tikka, Shrimps Arayes etc.
Lamb Foga and Chicken Briyani, from the Rice section was prepared with so much delicacy and perfect.
It tasted so very mouth watering, the meat all fresh and juicy and the rice was infused with all the ingredients till the last bite.
Dawood Basha, Lebanon (and the rest of the Levant) was under Ottoman rule until the end of WWI and back then high-ranking officers were called basha; hence the name of this dish, after an Armenian governor or pasha (basha is the Arabic pronounciation since p as a sound does not exist in Arabic) who was appointed to govern the Lebanese territory.
This dish is a homey dish and one that can be found with slight variations all over the Levant. Some people like to make it with lamb and omit the tomato paste so the sauce is just a dark, meaty sauce. It is easy to make, relatively fast and popular.
Here comes my favorite part the Desserts and over here at Qasr Al Sultan it was a lavish spread of Mixed Fruit Platter, Mixed Baklava & Kunafa, Umm Ali, Jelly, Mouhalabia.
Overall it was an amazing experience and our host Saheer was such a lovely person, really knows the menu well and I was impressed by his professionalism and hospitality.
