Festival city has come up with so many new shopping outlets and also some great food option as well. Manhattan is newly open place where you have many variety of sea food. Sea food is something i enjoy the most. Actually you can say i am a sea food lover, so could have not missed this place to try out.
This outlet is located inside mall food court, but other then that it is a huge spacious restaurant. The ambiance is very colorful and you get to see mall view. The moment you enter the restaurant the entire staff greet you with loud hello. The menu is very interesting as the options are huge.
We started with the starters platter which was mix of FRIED COUNTRY MUSHROOM crispy button mushrooms with honey and mustard sauce, delicious. GARLIC HERB MUSSELS served in the sauce it self, yummy. And OCEAN GEMS cold prawns and scallops tossed in tangy sauce, different in taste and delicious.
For the drinks we stick to simple and light LEMON GRASS LEMONADE fresh flavor of lemon grass was very light and refreshing in this summer. We also opted VANILLA MILKSHAKE heavy, thick and delicious shake along with whipped cream on top was indeed a pleasure to indulge in, delicious.
In mains we had SALMON N MASH which is grilled salmon in black pepper sauce with mashed potato, it was good. FISHY CHICKY BANG BANG where chicken and fish filled with cheese, coated and fried, served with fries and sunny side up, it was really very heavy and somehow i could not enjoy it much.
Other then this we tried MANHATTAN FLAMING PRAWNS jumbo prawns on bed of fried and topped with white sauce and flamed in front of you, very interesting and prwans were juicy though. CREAMY MUSHROOM PENNE in white mushroom sauce with salmon. It tasted good but was quite dry for me.
Now the desserts part where we had SIZZLING BANANA FRITTERS WITH ICE CREAM which was a delicious treat, but since i don’t like banana based desserts much, for me it was good. The other one was some PARFAIT which was layers of ice cream and crushed crackers, it was good and in perfect portion.
Final Verdict – After serving many countries around the world Manhattan fish market has started its first restaurant in Dubai. The concept is off course to serve fresh sea food and they have surely fresh food to serve. Service is really very prompt and i loved everything they served, menu is impressive too.
