I had the pleasure of enjoying a feast at the Creekside restaurant in the Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel & Towers this past week, and it was such a pleasant surprise! With fresh seafood on display in every form (crabs, lobsters, prawns, mussels, fillets and even whole fish) to live cooking stations and a dessert buffet that tastes as good as it looks (the cheesecake was my favorite), this is one restaurant you need to try!
The concept is Pan-Asian, but with a focus on seafood. There is an assortment of sustainable fish and seafood on offer that is cooked to order and grilled to perfection with a variety of sauces to suit anyone's personal preference. The sushi station offers a delectable assortment of sashimi as well as maki rolls and nigiri. The sushi chefs are trained craftsmen and are constantly at work making items to replenish this popular section of the restaurant.
.The salads and cold starter station was also chock full of Pan-Asian treats from Thai Style Prawns to Crab Salad, it was difficult to pick a place to begin. My favorite item however was the house cured smoked salmon with capers and dill. Not very Asian, but made well, buttery and flavorful, but not too powerful.
On to my favorite section, the GRILL! With a selection of seafood such as this, how could you go wrong?! From crab to lobster, salmon to sole everything was fresh to look and taste, but also prepared well. The salmon was good with just a simple salt and lemon, but I enjoyed some of the items with the Thai chilli sauce suggested by our friendly waiter. It especially enhanced the flavor of the lobster and prawns.
There was so much to do and see at this restaurant, I can't forget to mention the live cooking stations as well. There is a Tepanyaki station where the chef keeps you on your toes as he tosses knives and pepper mills into the air all while preparing you your delicious feast. There is also a Wok section, where you are able to select ingredients of your choice and noodle (egg, glass, udon) and its prepared for you LIVE while you watch. If you're very hungry while you're food is being prepared, right beside it is a also a fry station with a range of items such as prawn tempura, vegetable tempura and spring rolls. You can nibble on those while you wait for your food.....
As I mentioned earlier, the dessert buffet is a colorful assortment of favorites from cheesecake to tiramisu and Creme Brulee to Opera Cake.
The Creekside restaurant is a fresh and healthy restaurant concept with a modern Pan-Asian flare. The prices are reasonable for the quantity and quality of food you are getting. The Sunday to Saturday Dinner Buffet is priced at AED 175 without beverages and AED 225 Including house beverages.
