Al Bustan Residence, located in Old Dubai, Al Nahda to be specific, recently introduced a promotion exclusively for grills and barbecues. On the menu were a range of kebabs and tikkas, which left us confused as to what to order. We finally settled for Fattoush as starters with Mix Grill and Fish Tikka. These were washed down with some drinks prepared in-house.
The Fattoush was fresh and topped with roasted pita bread. They came in small bowls that were perfect for one person. The Mix Grill was accompanied with a Hummus, Arabic bread, and Tahina sauce. While the fish tikka came with some Indian naan and green chutney. Both of these were of a decent portion which would be enough for two people, considering how the side dishes seemed to fill the table up with no space to accommodate for other meals.
I really liked the fish tikka. The fish was juicy and soft and went well with both Green chutney and Tahina sauce. The Mix Grill, on the other hand, was a bit dry. The plate had pieces of sheesh tawook, malai tikka, fries, with some barbecued vegetables.
But the whole deal was definitely not bad for the prices mentioned on the menu. Each dish ranged from AED 30-40 with a sizeable portion that two people can easily share. Though the ambiance of the place is lost due to it being located in a food court, the site can still be used as guests for their meals. Or better, order room service!
