I was excited to try the fam-tastic brunch of Garden grille restaurant at Hilton Garden Inn in Barsha and literally skipped my breakfast to endeavor their brunch . Fridays at The Garden Grille are awesome with their newly launched Fam-Tastic Brunch which includes a wide variety of food, live music, pool access and an interactive kids play zone with toys and games. Stepping in to Hilton Garden Inn itself makes your heart serene, since the place is fully covered in artificial green plants and which gives you some good vibe .Wall to wall windows was allowing sunlight to break in and brighten up the whole atmosphere. The table arrangement was clean and crisp with green chairs and glasses to match up the garden theme.
The hotel restaurant was fully packed because of the inmates staying in the hotel, but still their hospitality was at the top notch .The restaurant was huge which was divided into several compartments and each space was giving enough room for privacy .They were having separate counters for bar, bread basket, fruits counter , main course counters, live stations and last but not the least , dessert station.
The best thing I loved about this place is their children play area with the nanny service .You don’t have to bother about your kids, and infact you can leave them to the kids area, where they will be enjoying the cartoon, face painting and storytelling session.And Yes, they were having live music too and we absolutely loved the lady singing and my little one was dancing to her music .And last but not the least , you do get a pool access, when you have their brunch, What else you want to have a relaxed Friday . It was indeed a fam-tastic brunch in every sense.
Christina, supervisor of Food and Beverages here welcomed us warmly and ushered us to our table. She gave us a brief details about the place and menu and even suggested us in ordering our drink which were Mint lime and self squeezed Orange juice .
Yes, they do have an counter for self service, where you can squeeze your own juice and make your own waffles .
Starting up with the starters we ordered chef’s special roasted baby potatoes, corn on the cob and citrus mashed potato .
Roasted baby potatoes coated with crispy crumbs served along with coleslaw and spicy dip. Totally amazing
Cold Mezze– Tabouleh, Hummus, Moutabel, Fatoush and Warakenab came to us with bread. All were good specially the hummus and moutabel.
Carprese– Buffalo mozzarella,pieces of roma tomatoes, basil, olive oil and balsamic cream. It is made to resemble the colors of the Italian flag.Fresh mozzarella was delectable,simple but incredibly delicious dish.
Moving on to the main dishes we opted for Lemon chicken with capers and honey mustard roasted chicken with glazed carrots.
Lemon chicken – Another signature dish ,this traditional dish was Thick and creamy and the consistency of this dish will crave you to lick you finger .Not too lemony, just right. With garlic, butter, lemon, thyme, and rosemary. Easy on stomach too, It will brighten the flavor of chicken, even acts as a tenderizer
By the way, How can I miss their Quiche selection . they were having wide variety of pies and quiches and it was difficult for me to taste everything , but I should say each and every variety was dope and the ones which I tried were ham and cheese quiche and Mediterranean quiche
Lamp Chops– Marinated with spice, nut, pumpkin and pomegranate quinoa. My husband liked them although it couldn’t impress me that much.
To satisfy our sweet cravings we got a chance to relish some sweet items from garden cafe.The Coffee lounge operates 24 Hours and serves coffee, toothsome pastries and tea. I tried Florentine Tart ,Oreo Cheesecake and Tiramisu. Everything was luscious and with a cup of cappuccino it made the whole experience incredible
