Travelling for business, I was at Bustan twice. Definitely a very nice place.
I was happy with the food of the first visit not so much for the second one.

Tried the Wagyu Beef but didn't meet my expectations. The chef did redeem himself by offering a complimentary fruit salad. Overall ambience was ok although the music from the other outlets over powers the music in the restaurant. The hostess, Asmaa Hassan was very pleasant throughout the evening

I wanted to eat outside at the hotel (where I am staying) this was the nearest I could get - a covered area with substantial sceening round the sides. A bit warm and airless on a very hot night. But the ambiance is relaxing, the staff are very pleasant and attentive and it was a comfortable dining experience except for the very dim lighting (the staff brought a clip-on micro-lamp for me to read my newspaper with).

My starter of lentil soup was delicious - a rich meaty stock and creamy texture, with a nice confit pigeon leg on the side to show the stock's origins. This is a grill restaurant with a menu heavily dominated by meat, but for main course I chose calamari. Being familiar only with calamari rings fried in tempura batter, I was not expecting the pile of large, thick, flabby rectangles of flesh in a sauce of Provencal vegetables and parsley. The texture was more like braised beef cheeks than a barbecued fish. A staff member offered to put them on the charcoal for longer, and this improved the bite, but not, I'm afraid, the taste. This is emphatically not the restaurant's fault, but my own bad luck. Next time I'll stick to the meat!

I will definitely come back, as the restaurant has style and its cooking has flair. Just a pity I chose something that was not to may taste
