Hatta restaurant, Sheraton Dubai Creek, Deira
T his restaurant tucked away in the innards of this elegant hotel has gone international for its iftar buffet. So expect a whole range of Oriental cold mezze, a mean chicken shwarma (that had my son bewitched!) fresh Italian pasta and chicken biryani. The highlight had to be a whole roasted lamb ouzi on spiced saffron rice. We ran out of steam before the dishes did. An absolutely divine Umm Ali took the honours at dessert. Dh119 per person. Children under six free. Open daily 6pm-8.30pm. Call 04 228 1111, email hatta.reservations@ sheraton.com, or visit www. sheratondubaicreek.com.
