Sevila Asian Buffet - Al Raha Beach, Abu Dhabi

Add: Al Raha Corniche - PO Box 38616, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Located: This hotel is located in a premier position on the Al Raha Corniche which is 10 km from Abu Dhabi Airport and 25 km from Abu Dhabi City Centre and the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, and only just over an hour from Dubai’s Jumeirah district.




In what is described as "Abu Dhabi’s first luxury boutique hotel", with "only" 134 rooms (and over 300 staff!), we had dinner at the Wednesday night at Sevila. 179 AED (or about RM$180), and an extra 16 percent tax, this was not a cheap meal!

Food was unspectacular, but very nicely varied - We enjoyed japanese tidbits, chinese timsum, malaysian, vietnamese, thai tom yum goong, as well as indian subcontinent dishes including papadoms!
I still found room to squeeze in some fruits ... including MANGOSTEENS after the meal!

Washed down with a refreshing Heine :-)
