I was staying across the street and saw a big sign announcing the opening of a new restaurant in the hotel so I went over. I was delighted with the physical appearance of the hotel being authentic Arabic. The lobby has a large tree growing into the reception desk. The very exciting bar is a copy of Angkor-Wat. The lighting are either authentic from Arabia or a copy of something from Arabia (Iran, Qatar, Saudia Arabia, Iraq, Jordan, etc.). Service was fabulous and we dined in their new, Arabian restaurant "Shebestan."
The decoration took my breath away because the owners bestowed on the restaurant antiques from their own personal collection (daggers, plates, hookas, chairs, etc.). I spent 30 minutes just walking around to see all the collection. The dining room is designed to look like you are in some Arabic hideaway and is visually very appealing. All table decorations are made in one of the Arabic countries.
I met the chef, Ibrahim and he said he would make a special lunch for us which he surely did. The mezzes were all absolutely fresh along with the wonderful breads. The scented water dish to wash your hands before and after the dinner was a nice touch. The wait staff are dressed in Arab clothing adding to the feel of authenticity. Vinood, the food and beverage manager was very generous with his time answering all our questions.
I left sooooo full with the not only the food, but wonderful teas and unusual desserts. Best part...$10 each including tax and tip. Do not miss this place.
