Al Wahda All Day Dining, Abu Dhabi
Tonight we had the pleasure of dining at the all day dining restaurant of the Grand Millennium Hotel, Abu Dhabi. We had dinner at Al Wahda.
Contrary to yesterday not only the quality of the food but also the temperature in the restaurant had improved. Last night we were not able to hold the fork and knife without shivering all over the place – tonight we felt very comfortable. The great atmosphere and smell in the restaurant supported the warmth of the service.
We were welcomed by Ms. Jeanne, the hostess who was dressed in a beautiful Indian traditional gown and served us coke without ice and a slice of lime. Her welcome was friendly and her smile was infectious. Every time she passed by we could not resist of smiling back at her.
Not only the hostess was dressed up in traditional clothes, the entire restaurant transformed into a colorful, warm and charming Indian showpiece. It has been nearly five years now since we arrived in the United Arab Emirates and we tried countless places that serve Indian or Pakistani food.
Tonight however, was one of the best experiences we ever had. Dahl, papadam, masala, beans, gravy… we tried it all. It was so good that we even went up to buffet a second time, and asked Bill the Nepali Chef for the recipe. Bill was delighted about the compliments and happy to share his secrets with us. We promised him however to keep the formula of happiness (as we called tonight) to ourselves as he wanted more and more people to get curious about his cuisine and asked us to call up all of you to try the food yourselves.
Chef Bill, here is our announcement: “Ladies and gentlemen in the United Arab Emirates, fellow business and leisure travelers, come and visit the Al Wahda all day dining on a Tuesday night. The food is fantastic and the service is just perfect. Attention to details, the right attitude and a portion of happiness awaits all of you…”
We can only thank the team of Al Wahda restaurant for the nice and relaxed evening and what is left to say, is that we are looking forward to our next visit.
