Since it was my birthday, we have decided to celebrate it at Bab Al Yam Restaurant in Burj Al Arab. The restaurant boasts both indoor and outdoor seating arrangement with a pool and sea view. Since it is winter and found the environment romantic, we chose to sit outdoor next to the pool with a perfect sea view.

The restaurant serves European buffet and food was delicious. There is a live cooking station where they cooked pasta and risotto. We have ordered the risotto and it was one of the best that we have ever tasted. There is also another live cooking station in the restaurant. Their appetizers / starters and their dessert items are something you'll love a lot. I also loved their main course especially their steak and grilled seabass fish.

Our server Mr. Abdulla / Abdallah has provided us with exceptional services and met all our requirements with a smile on his face. On top of that, we also get to witness spectacular fireworks at close proximity which was a bonus for us for my birthday. The restaurant even surprised us by giving us a complimentary delicious birthday cake for me to cut and bunch of red roses for my wife.

Overall rating:-

Food:- 5/5
Value for Money:- 5/5 (as we have used Isme by Jumeirah)
Service:- 5/5
Atmosphere:- 5/5

Overall:- 5/5

I'd definitely come back again and will recommend others to visit the restaurant and try their food.
