We recently made our way to Nay restaurant in Somewhere Hotel located in Barsha. The hotel has a beautiful lobby with tones of purple dominating the interiors that carries on to the restaurant as well.
The restaurant is spread across the first floor with indoor and outdoor seating along with option of a smoking section as well for seesha. Their ambiance is spot on with a gorgeous wooden theme running through. It is a combination of traditional meets modern that just seemed to make our Iftar dinner all the more interesting!
They offer a beautiful dining experience with a Lebanese buffet and live entertainment. I absolutely loved the live musician playing melodious traditional music in the background that was so captivating and complemented the meal very well.

There are dry fruits and water on the table to help break your fast. They boast of a smashing salad bar that is absolutely rocking! From fresh fruits to vegetables, cheese to sauces, they have got them all! If you enjoy eating healthy, they have got you covered.
Pair some traditional khubus bread with their hummus and fresh cheese selection. From the hot starters I especially loved the Potatoes that were crispy and packed with a little chilli kick. You also cannot pass up on the little meat sambosek that are always found in any Iftar buffet. You must surely indulge in their fattoush salad that is colourful, vibrant and crunchy.
The main course section had the traditional rice preparation called Mandi made with chicken. They also had kibbeh in curry that was a new dish for me to try. The fish and potatoes, pink pasta and meat lasagna were all lovey dishes to indulge in. Apart from this you can also pick up some hot kebabs from the live grill. One thing that was present across all the dishes was that they had good flavour but weren’t too high in terms of spices. I know is great for a Lebanese spread as people fasting do not like to eat food that is too heavy or rich on an empty stomach.
The menu includes a lot of desserts. We satiated our craving for something sweet with a bowl of their vanilla ice cream topped with pine nuts. They have a good combination of traditional Emirati desserts like Lugaimat, baklava and Othmaliya along with chocolate sponge cake, raspberry mousse and cream sponge cake.
