Recently visited this restaurant on a trip to Dubai, and we were definitely not disappointed! Upon arrival in the Burj Khalifa we were whisked up to the restaurant and shown to the bar reception area. We were given an arrival drink of mint iced tea which was very tasty and refreshing after the heat of being outside. The restaurant itself appears minimalistic and at the same time decadent with large windows around 3 sides with a view of the fountains outside, and music is timed to coincide with the watershow. The other wall shows an unobstructed view into the kitchens and all that is happening in there, which is an intriguing sight should the watershow outside not take your fancy.
The waiters could not be any more attentive, and were available for the smallest request with a smile.
Whilst we did not have the tasting menu and chose a la carte, this came highly recommended. We ordered poppadoms and pickles, along with out main courses. The chef did also send out a small sample pre-starter which was delicious and a nice touch.
The food itself was delectable, we opted for a king prawn dish and a paneer dish, both of which were cooked to perfection and we wouldn't have asked for it to be any different. We also had a rice and a naan bread to share, which was plenty, and equally as tasty as the main dishes.The portion sizes were large so a starter wasn't needed, and we were pretty full by the time the meal was over.
After paying the bill (which was much more reasonable than anticipated), we were given a small box of chocolates to take away with us, which again made the whole dining experience seem more personal. Very impressive!
