If you fancy spending your weekends in an elegant suite from where you get panoramic views of creek & Mangrove clusters, and if you are a nature admirer you will have the best time as you keep watching this splendid view from your room.
I have experienced all this at my recent staycation at Bin Majid Mangrove Hotel in Ras al Khaimah. A very convenient and comfortable drive towards this emirate and over looking Downtown Creek, this property offers great services to its guests.
This 18 storey building has an inviting entrance lobby with the most cheerful staff. We were warmly welcomed & very well taken care of by the most courteous hotel manager Mr. Haytham, Ms Rosario, and restaurant manager Mr. Singh & their entire team.
The hotel has multiple dining options which includes an all day dining International restaurant Rainbow Restaurant, Chinese Restaurant Noodle Corner, Side Walk Café situated at Lobby Level where you can enjoy the café’s own delicacies & coffee /tea by Icons Coffee.
Noodle Corner serves very delicious Chinese food with a slight fusion touch in the recipes but which ever dish we opted from the menu, turned out to be an amazing spread on our table. To our surprise the person behind all these innovative flavors is from Pakistan , Chef Rashid with a very good experience working in different Chinese restaurants is now showing his skills at Noodle Corner.
Noodle Corner staff guided us well in selection of menu, which was the perfect choice. Initially we were served with pickled cucumbers & coated peanuts, we enjoyed munching on these while our soup was getting ready. The service is also very quick!
Soup: We started with Mushroom Chicken Soup, simple & flavorful clear chicken soup with chunks of chicken and mushrooms in it. Enjoyed sipping till end.
Starter: Steamed Chicken Dumplings ….. you can opt for the filling of your choice, we had it stuffed with chicken, dumplings were very soft & richly stuffed with tasty minced chicken.
Fried Chinese Noodles ……. again for the noodles there is a choice of beef, chicken, egg, seafood & vegetables, we had it with seafood. Noodles were done so well with good addition of shrimps.
Lamb with Cumin & Onion ……… small shreds of soft lamb with fried onion slices and hints of some mix flavors & cumin, this is another great dish from the menu.
Shrimps with Sweet & Sour Broccoli ………. Sauteed Shrimps were prepared in mild gravy with cahew nuts and broccoli. Loved this item as well!
Fish Cubes with Sweet & Sour Chili Sauce ….. small square pieces of boneless fish coated and done in slight sweet & sour gravy. Goes well with noodles or enjoy eating alone!
Their menu has a good range of dishes, and the best part is that generous serving is done in platters with very reasonable rates which ranges mostly within 30 to 35 Dhs.
With the upcoming winter months in UAE, the foodies & travellers who are looking out for new places with in UAE, I would highly recommend Mangrove Hotel Bin Majid not only for an amazing staycation experience but must visit Noodle Corner to try delicious Indo- Chinese food.
The restaurant décor depicts Chinese Culture, traditional Chinese lanterns, and hangings, beige/gold & use of red color gives a lively touch to the entire hotel ambiance. Organized seating & big glass windows with outside views of ras al Khaimah Corniche leaves a nice impact.
