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 lamb ouzi sitting on top of charcoal-grill was just a wonderful sight to behold which made for an exquisite experience. This was one of the main highlights during the evening which thrilled me to go and get a plate right away. 😉

Desserts in Aseelah are composed of Arabic sweets including baklava, umm ali, date pudding, and a Turkish delight. The kunafa was the best!

Our Turkish-themed dinner was spent outdoors where guests can also have a round of shisha.
The food was fresh and of premium quality and taste. We were sold out to Turkish cuisine because of our dining experience that evening.

We would certainly go back to this restaurant for its delicious food. The buffet spread is enough and the choice of food displayed is authentic and rich in taste.

My Gyrocopter Flight Experience in Dubai

One of the fun and extreme activities you can do if you’re in Dubai is ride a gyrocopter and tour Dubai from the sky. I was able to experience this adventure recently when my wife booked me a Skyhub Gyrocopter Flight (BOOK HERE).
The Gyrocopter is a 2-seater sport aircraft that fits 1 passenger and 1 pilot. This interestingly small aircraft will let you enjoy an exclusive flight at 1,500 ft. The experience lasts for 20 minutes and the route covers the coast of Dubai which allows you to have an aerial view of iconic landmarks like the Burj Al Arab, Ain Dubai, Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah Island, Atlantis, The Palm, and The World islands.

My wife and I arrived at the SkyDive Dubai Palm Drop Zone as this is where the SkyHub Gyroscope office is also located. While we arrived earlier than expected, the staff immediately welcomed us and informed us that if I was ready, I could go ahead and start the tour. I immediately said yes and they drove me towards the jump off point.
I met the pilot, Captain Rolando, who briefed me what to do in case of emergency. He assured me it was going to be a fun experience. The thrilling part was the takeoff but as soon as we were on the air, it was quite an exhilarating experience.

I remember a few years ago, I rode a seaplane together with other Dubai bloggers and toured Dubai from the sky while capturing some cool aerial shots. Now I got to fly over the city again, but the flight is even more daring as I rode on a ‘naked’ gyrocopter. It was an open aircraft so I got a very clear view of the landscape from both sides.
We flew from the drop zone towards The Palm Jumeirah Islands, hovered over the area and then over to Burj Arab, then turned around and flew towards Dubai Marina and back to the Palm and then to the Drop Zone.

couldn’t go nearer, this photo was zoomed from my camera

It was a quick 20-minute ride which I wish would last longer. I got to enjoy the sights of the city and I was lucky enough that the weather was clear so I could view the iconic sites in their full glory.
Prior to landing, Captain Rolando, after I agreed, did a quick acrobatic turn which tilted the gyrocopter a bit. It felt like I was on a rollercoaster and showcases the capabilities of the aircraft.
