User Reviews for Al Ibrahimi Restaurant
Getting a seat here for their Iftar dinner is an impossible task-it really is that popular in the local communities, including expatriates from Pakistani, Indian and every other nationality.
The buffet is one of the city’s few which serves plenty of freshly cooked options from a variety of cuisines and at under AED 60 it is decent value too. Service can be forgivably slow but they make up for it in earnestness.
The Madinat Zayed branch of Al Ibrahimi Restaurant has abundant outdoor as well as indoor seating. You can sit upstairs too. There is a juice and traditional Chaat corner, Shawarma counter on the ground floor and the first floor mainly caters to the buffet. The Shawarmas they make are one of the best in the city and the size of each is generous. I have tried their dinner buffet a couple of times, with my first visit being months ago, and the second being very recent. Though there is a 10 Dirham hike in the buffet price, it was nice to see the consistency in the quality of food. The menu hasn’t changed much. The buffet area is modestly decorated and the atmosphere of the place is killed by the lack of effective air-conditioning which is requisite especially when you are consuming spicy food. At AED 55 per person and AED 4 extra for a 1.5 L bottle of water, the buffet spread is lavish.
You will find the Indian favourite snacks like Pani puri and Dahi Vada are included in the salad section and then there is Spicy Channa, Thousand Island Dressing, Corn, Veg. Salad, Tomato sauce, Raita, Green Chutney, Curd and Hommos along with salads. There are 2 soups: hot & sour soup and the chicken corn soup of which the latter was the winner hands down. The entrées had an immense variety. If you are a vegetarian you may be disappointed with just the Bhindi and Spinach on offer but for non-vegetarians you have Seekh Kebab (Spicy and Non-Spicy), Haleem, Kharoof (which is the Traditional Arabic Biryani), Chapli Kebab, Boti Tikka, Pasta, Chicken with Vegetable (mainly Broccoli and Carrot), Prawn Manchurian, Mutton Kadai Ghosht, Egg Fried Rice, Paya, Chicken Biryani, Chicken Handi, Spring Fried Chicken, French Fries, Fish Fingers, Beef Chilli Dry. My picks would be the Fish Fingers which were crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, the Spicy Seekh Kebabs which were succulent and optimally spicy; Mutton Kadai Gosht which had large tender pieces of boneless mutton which was yummy to my tummy. The Prawn Manchurian was piquant and delectable. There are two types of breads to go along with: Naan and Tandoori Roti.
The desserts: Umm Ali which is roti based sweet prepared with milk and ghee, Custard, Creme Caramel, Kheer, Fruit Salad (containing Apple, Green Grapes and Water Melon), Sevaiyyan which was moderately sweet, Strawberry Mousse, Chocolate Mousse, Jalebi, Gulab Jamun, Oranges, Apples). My picks in the desserts are the Mousses, Jalebis and Gulab Jamun .The Kheer disappoints and so does the Creme Caramel which was flooded with sweet crème caramel powder. The Strawberry Jelly was nice. The service was good if not great. Summarising this sort of enigmatic buffet is difficult so I have the same old words for you with twice as much meaning in them:
