Fancy an extensive buffet? Then Barbeque Nation is just the right choice for you. Did their buffet win my heart? Scroll below to find out…
Barbeque Nation are pioneers of live grills and lovely appetizers. I was invited to check the food out here with a plus one. It is advisable to book your table as I had gone on a holiday and found it really packed. Thank God I had a reservation. They have number of outlets in India too. I love the concept of live grills embedded on the dining table itself. Barbeque Nation has both good vegetarian and non vegetarian starters and 5 options in both. Barbeque Nation is really a paradise as it not only has huge variety of starters but also live cooking, including live Chaat, noodles, keema pav, quesadillas, etc and buffet for main course and exclusive dessert section. They have Mango Mania festival running currently, so there were many dishes with Mango. What I liked about the restaurant is that there were separate cubicles available too, if you needed some privacy. Praveen was our server and host throughout my meal and also the Manager and other staff keep checking if the meal is alright and upto your mark. Praveen also asked if the spice level is okay for the grills.
I started with Fresh Lime soda, Lychee juice and Mango juice as coolers. They were really refreshing and much needed for this summer. I am a vegetarian and was quite happy with the starters options available like Cajun Spice potato, Crispy Fry corns, both were very yummy and crisp and could not stop myself for getting more servings. The corn spinach kebab was also yummy. The grill had yummy Paneer Lajawab, Dhanyari Aam , Chilli Mango Mushroom, Amchuri Pineapple and Mango Mustard Potato. Isn’t your mouth watering? The non veg items are mentioned in my pics. There was an extensive salad counter too.
Once you are done with the grills , there is a flag on each table which can be brought down stating that you give up and can’t eat anymore of the grills.
The Chaat ,i.e, Pani Puri, bhel Puri and dahi Puri all were good and could be prepared according to your spice level. Hakka noodles were made live were really so yummy. I found the quesadillas a little sweet and wanted them more spicy.
I was almost full with little space left for main course and dessert. The main course had extensive buffet with again loads of veg and non veg options. There were 3 different types of biryani or rice on a separate counter and your choice of bread or roti is served hot on the table. The veg buffet had Soup, Paneer Palak Tikka, Mango Kofta Curry, Aloo Methi Papad ki subzi, Baked Mushrooms and green peas and I coupled it up with Veg Soya Biryani. All the veggies were superb. Just loved the taste. Had juice after this Spicy Tango (mango with Tabasco sauce) and Shikanji, which were really very very good.
Now there was little space left just for the dessert. They have the concept of Kulfi Nation, with at least 5 or more different Kulfi flavours like Mango, Least Pistachio, Strawberry, Malai and Ghulkand and a variety of dips, sauces and other toppings to choose from. The Kulfi counter was always crowded with people lined up for it, but that didn’t put me back. The in house Kulfi was fabulous and a must try. I chose the Kesar pistachio flavour Kulfi for that.
And if this was not all, there were other desserts like delectable brownies, gulab jamun, pastries, cake, etc. You are really spolit for choice at Barbeque Nation. More so, the buffet is for Dh 59 per person, which is really very reasonable for such a variety and spread.
Barbeque Nation has over 60+ outlets across India and spreading the same magic here in Dubai.
