Flavours restaurant is a part of Hawthorn Suites located in the very beautiful JBR area of Dubai. We made our way to the restaurant to enjoy a relaxed weekend complete with a scrumptious brunch.
The venue is great for a casual meal with the family. When people think of lunch buffets they are probably thinking of crowded stations and too many choices but here’s where Flavours does things differently. They have a selected menu that is complete with options to satisfy you but not confuse you. The brunch is priced at AED125/ per person inclusive of soft drinks and select beverages, and is open from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Kids aged 12 and below can dine for free. It’s a great place to celebrate the weekend with the kids.
The best way to describe our experience is to say it was like a picnic at the park. We simply loved their outdoor seating area and were only to happy to indulge in the live BBQ while soaking up the beautiful sun.
Get Set Gobble:
They have a huge selection of cheese and cold cut meats, atleast a dozen different salads and lot of dressing options. We were actually be amazed when we saw the number of salads on the table. The selection is quite big with a lot of fresh greens on offer.
With freshly baked breads and an overflowing counter of appetizers, you will be glad to have the weekend started on a healthy note. With options like the Okra salad, Mix seafood salad, Grilled eggplants with blue cheese, Citrus salad, Prawn with tomato salsa and more, we stepped up to the counter with and empty plate and loaded it up to enjoy the wonderful feast.
You can see they have quite a good spread of cold seafood. All our favourites are there from crabs, whole fish, mussels, clams, oysters, prawns and more! Not only this, but also check out the selection of fresh fruits and sushi.
You’ve definitely got to try the Penne pasta with creamy cheese and Spinach. The Mexican rice has a great blend of spices which makes it so tasty that you not only enjoy it with other dishes but it also tastes great on its own! The Lamb Rogan Josh looks a little spicy but it’s quite mild and will not overpower your tastebuds. They cater to adults as well as kids and we saw them loading up their plates with little treats like Chicken nuggets, Fish fingers, Lemon baby corn and French fries.
They also have a LIVE barbeque station where the chef skilfully prepares any cold seafood that you have picked out of the buffet so we stopped by the lavish seafood spread and loaded our plates up with all that we could find. The Hammour fish was super fresh and we were absolutely thrilled to see it get grilled right in front of us….doesn’t get more fresh than this right?! Apart from this they are also grilling up different marinated meats like Shish Taouk, Shish Kebab and Lamb Kofta that are simply perfect with some khubus, fresh salad and hummus.
If you are worried about the little kiddies, you don’t have to be because Flavours has that all covered! They have a little kiddy corner with all sorts of stuff to keep the little ones entertained including a face painting station, colouring station, slides and a trampoline! We could see a lot of kids out in the play area definitely enjoying themselves.
And last but definitely not least, we arrived at the dessert course and we were in for a treat! Even though we were already stuffed with all the delicious food, there’s always space for some dessert right?! You have definitely got to try the Hazelnut mouse, Mini baklava, Orange berry parfait, Golden macaroon, Lemon mousse, Mini chocolate pastries and loads more!
Needless to say, nobody is going home hungry.
