We were visiting RAK and found this restaurant on trip advisor. We opted for the grill and buffet and were not disappointed. Everything was cooked to order and was outstanding. Perhaps a fish option would have been nice too? Will most certainly be visiting here again.

My wife and I went for a meal along with our three year old son; we had three main meals which were very nice and three desserts, no alcohol only water and the bill came to £100. The food was good but not worth the prices they charge; service is excellent though.

Went to this restaurant by chance and received a warm welcome by the chef de cuisine Marco (?), who assisted us to get a table and extended his service. Great start. The orders were brought quickly. All three dishes were very enjoyable, although the side dishes could been slighter bigger. Overall great experience, especially with this atmosphere. Sitting in the... More

Especially the guy who brings the skewers to your table. It was a nice touch that the chef spoke to us too. Took a while for them... More

This is a lovely venue. Lovely food. However the service was slow, it took us an hour to get any food to our table and service for drinks was slow.

From beginning until end of visit, me and my family have been not like as simple visitors, otherwise like friend’s meeting in our own, old good company.

We have just returned from our 4th visit to Resort. Ate at this restaurant about 6 times! Churassco is great, but the rib eye steak is to die for. Lamb rack also. Chef Marco does a great job. Shambhu is a gem!! Needs to be given more opportunity to prosper!! Wholly recommend. Beautiful setting too.
