Ambiance & Atmosphere
We arrived before 1 pm and were asked to wait at the entrance as a staff briefing was going on inside the restaurant. You can enjoy a walk near the beach while waiting just like what we did! 🙂 The service staff ushered us to our table and gave us an orientation of the buffet. There are six multi-ethnic live cooking stations featuring a wide array of international selection including Middle Eastern, European and Asian dishes. Let’s kick off this post with a tour of the restaurant.
What we like most about the ambiance of Suq restaurant is the energy of the place. This is not a quiet Friday Brunch that most people are used to. You’ll get lots of energy – from the buzzing live cooking stations, chitchats and laughter of diners, background music and a bright and airy atmosphere.
Our Dining Experience (Food and Menu)
Since there are so many dishes to choose from, we enjoyed the brunch by going from one zone to the other. I started off with the cold mezzeh, dim sum & pasta section then moved on to the grill section which I would highly recommend for you to linger a little longer. Take the time to excite your taste buds with the flavours of the dishes here, wash everything down with a glass of Prosecco wine, enjoy the company, rest and move on to the next.
Wagyu beef rolls are to die for! It was up to the high standards on an average day – always a good thing with 5 star luxury hotels! The beautifully roasted meats were also amazing and if you have opted for the alcohol option, pair these with a glass of wine and thank me later.
Another exciting part must be the foie gras counter! Pan-seared on the spot and served with that lovely smile. Is there anything better than this, really? 🙂
Some of the main course included are chicken shish taouk, lamb chops, lamb kofta and seabass fillet. There are freshly caught lobsters too in the seafood/Japanese station. While a variety of noodles and stir fry options to be cooked in the wok upon request complete the Asian station. For cheese lovers, there’s a wide selection of cheeses from across the globe to dig into perfectly partnered with warm freshly baked breads. Freshly shucked oysters are also offered by charming ladies in red visiting from table to table.
Even though most people tend to start with the cold and raw food first, I leave sashimi and sushi to the end somewhat because I see it as a main rather than an appetizer. I guess that’s the best part about going to a brunch, there’s no real order to follow and you’re free to start wherever you wish even if it means starting with the desserts! :p
No brunch or buffet is complete without an impressive plate of sweets – you’ll find a huge variety of desserts here that we’ve wish we actually have a separate stomach for. The cheese kunafa is my personal favourite while the husband enjoyed his pistachio and chocolate ice cream! I also treated myself with a crepe! Waffles, fruitcakes, cheesecake, tarts, creampuffs and MORE delights are also available. There’s an array of fresh tropical fruits too. For those a little younger at heart (or for those with kids), give the fondue a go, nothing better like dipping fresh fruits into a molten pot of chocolatey goodness! 🙂
With the beverages, you can opt to have non-alcoholic drinks (fresh juice or soft drinks) or the alcoholic beverages which includes a wide selection of unique signature cocktails, premium champagnes and signature wines from around the world. To end the meal, a selection of coffee and teas are available.
The best thing in Suq restaurant? They dedicate an area for kids complete with entertainment facilities. This means parents can enjoy the Friday brunches without worrying about babysitters. With entertainment for the kids, parents can enjoy their meals with friends and family. Brunches are a fantastic way to spend the afternoon with your kids being cared for by highly trained staff, YES – without the screams and the tantrums.
Staff and Service
The area where we were seated had a dedicated staff named Yoga that would promptly clear our plates, refill our glasses, and fold napkins and always coming over to us to check if everything was fine. When we started on our mains, our cutlery used for starters were instantly cleared and replaced. The Chefs in the Asian section especially Chef Johnny was very welcoming and cheery. And of course Mr. Lawrence Raj, Suq restaurant manager made sure that we’re enjoying our food and leave the place with a happy heart and a full stomach :p Kim and the rest of the staff in different dish section were always carrying a warm smile on their faces throughout our meal. Service was simply impeccable.
Value for Money
The price of this brunch buffet might be steep but for the lavish spread of food and its quality, flawless service and ambiance, it was a meal worth indulging and splurging on. We highly recommend the brunch here and have a treat for yourself or with your friends and families 🙂
