There’s just something about the city lights at night. I love watching them and I love gazing at them more from an elevated location. Actually, there are a few places in Dubai where I like to go to see the city lights at night and one of those places is at the 19th floor of Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel – Kris with a View.
Yes, that’s the name of the restaurant and when they put the “with a view” phrase in the name, they really mean it.
We were invited at the Kris with a view restaurant on a Thursday for their Asian Night theme buffet. The last time I was at this restaurant was already a couple of years ago but I still remember the wonderful view and the food. I wonder if there are changes?
And yes there are. The variety of dishes available were more and the taste of the maki rolls are better now. I personally love their Malaysian and Indonesian fares which are just right and not too spicy. There’s someone at the salad section to make green papaya salad on demand. However if you opt for it, maybe tell him to put a little more salt or nampra (fish sauce), at least that’s how it is prepared in Thailand.
There are so many different sauces representing countries in Asia.
There’s a live cooking station as well, serving stir fries and noodle soups.
One thing that did not change though, is the view from the hotel. We were seated near the window. Kris with a view is a great place to catch up with friends or could be avenue for a romantic dinner date. Apart from the view, the service is fast and the staff are courteous and polite. Kris with a view is defintely one of the very few places that serve good food and have a beautiful view of Dubai from above.
City night lights in bokeh mode…just as how I see it with my own eyes when I gaze at them too much, nearly getting lost with the time.
