Turkish Night at Aseelah in Radisson Blu Deira Creek

We had a superb dinner at Aseelah Restaurant in Radisson Blu Dubai Deira Creek. Aseelah is a signature restaurant of the hotel which serves Emirati/Middle Eastern/Arabic cuisine. We dropped by on a Thursday evening and were able to sample their Turkish Night.
We have dined in Radisson Blu Dubai Deira Creek a few times already and have always had a great time dining in their other restaurants like Sumibiya and Minato so when we had the opportunity to visit Aseelah, we didn’t hesitate at all.
Aseelah means “one belonging to a great heritage and family” in Arabic. This Emirati restaurant aims to continue the heritage as it invites new members to the family. They offer rich and traditional culture through their cuisine while blending in the modern Dubai.
Alcohol: YESShisha: YES

Aseelah Restaurant Review in Radisson Blu Dubai Deira Creek Hotel
Upon entering the restaurant, we were greeted by a hallway decorated with lamps. Spices in wooden barrels also welcomed us and set the mood of the authentic Arabic experience.
Traditional artifacts with gold and wood accents, and a low-light setting. The design and mood of the restaurant is posh and luxurious as it combines local architecture with modern art.
The restaurant is spacious with dedicated booths for families and groups who want more privacy.

booth for more privacy

love the intimate mood in this restaurant
Radisson Blu Deira Creek is the first five-star hotel in Dubai and their award-winning restaurants have tested time as they mastered the art of preparing their menu. This was our first time to sample some Turkish cuisines and we were very satisfied with the choices available.
The notable dishes include Dolma, Pilav rice with Lamb Shanks, Duck with Spinach, cold mezzes, and the amazing 5-hour slow-cooked Lamb Ouzi!

The restaurant has a good selection of salads, mezze, main course items, fruits, and desserts. We especially enjoyed the vegetable samosa, beetroot salad, watermelon feta, seafood skewers, beef strips, and grilled vegetables.
Guests at Flavours restaurant can also enjoy a live BBQ during the Valentine’s Special. They prepared us some grilled lamb chops, prawns, salmon, and chicken tikka.
Aside from the buffet, we were glad that the freshly grilled food arrived as it was quite a highlight during that evening.
