A convergence of the hotel's restaurants welcomed us at Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek Wednesday night. Right upon stepping out of the lift to the first floor, an assortment of dates from different countries and traditional Ramadan juices in their carts invite the guests into a sumptuous digestive indulgence. We were ushered to the bloggers table at Shabestan restaurant.
There's also one for zaatar lovers. A chicken shawarma stand is in the house as well.

The chicken and seafood dimsums, har gau, siumai, and the steamed buns were very tasty. Whenever new ones are brought to the dimsum station, they'll be gone in few minutes.
The sushi station offers variety of maki rolls.
After starting with Asian, I continued with Persian.
The hot-off-the-grill lamb and chicken kebabs suggest a feast. There's also Mahi kebab which I tried for the first time and it's good. It has very lean fish meat and doesn't feel "fishy" at all, which is good for me ;-)
An upcoming restaurant, Aseelah, provides a preview of their authentic Emarati cuisine.

|Caramel cream, cakes, dates and traditional Arabic sweets|
|More traditional Arabic sweets along with fudge and mousse cakes and dried fruits|
|My picks for dessert. Actually second plate.|
|Yes, Camel Milk is available|
All these lavish Iftar is reasonably priced at AED 149 per person inclusive of beverages, and is available from sunset til 11pm.
As this is one of the most popular Iftar in the city, I suggest you come at the earliest to avoid long queue at the valet (and at the buffet).
