Friday Brunch At Dusit Thani

by Jannat & Pawan Manghnani on October 19th, 2016

About

Dusit Thani Dubai is an iconic 5-star luxury hotel that captures the essence of Thailand in the vibrant centre of this cosmopolitan city, the jewel of the UAE. The Friday Brunch is spread across ​3 of their restaurants on the 24th floor namely Benjarong, Pax and The Californian.

Review

​The idea of a brunch at the Dusit Thani, is exciting as it is because they are home to one of the most popular cafes called Jones The Grocer and one of the very popular bars called Nippon Bottle company. Dusit Thani is definitely a public magnet in terms of its F&B outlets, and even though we’ve been to the formerly mentioned outlets, we hadn’t been able to try the other restaurants like Benjarong or PAX for that matter, so were extremely elated when we received the invitation for a “combined brunch” by Dust Thani. A combined brunch is something that takes place on the 24th floor of the hotel (spectacular views) and 3 restaurants namely Benjarong, Pax and The Californian participate in it, and offer an array of food varieties for the brunch, because why not spoil the customer for choice not only with the food items but also different cuisines. Anyways, we penciled in our brunch for Friday afternoon and were really looking forward to it. 

Ambiance

Picturesque views of the Burj Khalifa from the 24th floor of the hotel, is enough to be gawking at while eating, isn't it? The good thing is the whole brunch is set up in a circular fashion so you really do not need to walk lengths back and forth while grabbing something to eat or wanting a refill. The live pasta counter has some magical pull to it which got everyone to line up at some point during their brunch! There are plenty table by the window so the view can be enjoyed by mostly all, so no more settling for a bad seating anywhere! 

Food

​As expected we were greeted so warmly by their super efficient staff and were given one of the best tables with a view. I was ready with my camera and phone battery completely charged so as to not fall short of the billion shots i would take because this brunch spread was MASSIVE.
​There was literally food everywhere, even in sneaky lil places we almost missed, but didn’t. While our glasses kept getting refreshed with bubbly by the very generous server for the day, we grabbed food intermittently so as to balance out the alcohol! LOL.
​It is impossible to list out the brunch menu items because they were unending but if i really had to give a special mention to it would be the Chicken Shawerma- which was beyond amazing, the fact that they have UNLIMITED DIMSUMS!
​They had Khao Suey guys, beside all the pad thai and chicken curries and Anarcini’s and cannelloni’s on the other side!!
​And have you ever seen a croquembouche for dessert? At least I haven’t, and they very genuinely did a very good mass produced red-velvet cake that was not all dried up an actually worth the calories
We took our time and re-filled our plates because we wanted to experience at least a bit from every counter! Now we aren’t really big on seafood but we did speak to some really happy looking brunchee’s, who said the variety and the quality of food is beyond anything they had ever expected.

Verdict

​We had a splendid time during our brunch, and would recommend it to anyone who is confused next about a brunch place! It super cost effective, and with the millions of dishes you will not have a boring moment. They cater to allergies and recommend dishes safe for you. It is not overcrowded like some other places so it is possible to get food when you want it rather than to wait in line and have your appetite fade, and there is also some chart-busting music playing in the background to give you company while your loved one is too busy taking pictures of the food. :P Parking is not an issue at all, and if you get too wasted you always have a choice to book a room in the hotel and plop. #justsaying!

Oh and if you made it to the end of this blog, we are also running a competition, in collaboration with PAX Ristorante and Lounge, wherein you and a loved one can get a chance to participate in the #MenMakeDinnerAtDusit #MenAreRomanticToo #CookingLessons #ItalianDateNight in which the guy gets a chance to cook for his lady under the guidance of the Executive Chef of course!
