If I say Manzil Downtown is one of my favorite hotel in Dubai, it wouldn’t be wrong. I have been there many times and each time it never cease to impress.

Recently Manzil Courtyard has come up with BBQ Brunch where you get to experience delectable spread of traditional and international cuisine menu. From wide range of Salads to good choices of main dishes to the toothsome sweet options, makes it a complete family brunch in a relaxing alfresco setting of The Courtyard.

Last week I was there to try out this newly launched brunch. The arabesque setting and weather apt for such alfresco dining made our whole experience worth a while. I wont categorized this buffet as huge as usual Dubai’s buffet but I know it won’t disappoint you in terms of quality and affordability.




Salad station was loaded with assorted fresh varieties of local and international options. Not to forget the hot mezze like bite size samosas, cheese sticks and wings were the right start of our culinary experience.


Bread station was decorated artistically and so inviting for your carbs needs.

There were some veg options too like vegetable lasagna and roasted potato and herbs. Each dish had capability to tantalize our taste buds and made our hungry stomach satisfied.  


Plethora of exciting treats were displayed on sweet counter. Delectable variety compels you to indulge without thinking about calories. My favorite was chocolate fondue, creme burlee and a tarts. Kids were going bananas after the chocolate fondue with assorted condiments like marshmallows,, fresh fruit cuts and brownies 

If you are looking for a good Friday Brunch, I would suggest you to make this backyard brunch in your list. I bet would have a great time!
