Dubai’s lovers of outdoor grilled food can now enjoy a new restaurant concept dedicated to offering high quality cuisine based on their favourite al fresco cooking. Recently opened and located at Fraser Suites, Media City, Absolute Barbecues – also known as AB’s – is a unique indoor barbecue outlet that features a menu specially tailored to the style of dishes served from charcoal burners and stoves.
Established to cater for the demand for premium barbecued food that has grown up around the region’s enviable weather, AB’s is making its mark in the city following its success in India, where it is ranked among the best restaurants in Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad. The concept’s winning formula is based on its unrivalled ‘do-it-yourself’ grilling experience that incorporates a wide array of cuisines from around the world.
“AB’s is unique in that it provides an indoor barbecue experience, offering separate grilling options that include a barbecue at each table and a central live cooking station. AB’s has been specially tailored for foodies, in particular those who enjoy the typical style of dishes served up during al fresco cooking and dining,” said Razeen Parambil, General Manager Mayfair Restaurants.
AB’s offers a vast selection of meat, seafood and vegetables that customers can grill to their own preference. The restaurant’s accompanying sauces, salads and side dishes are prepared in-house, with many featuring signature recipes and ingredients exclusive to the brand. The company prides itself on the prime grade of every ingredient and menu item it serves, with only the most succulent cuts of meats and freshest garden offerings making it onto the selection counters.
AB’s perfection of taste is mastered through spices and marinades that are prepared in-house by dedicated chefs. These gourmet grillers can often be found making visits to diners at their tables to pass on cooking recommendations and tips, their enthusiasm for sharing the secrets for ultimate barbecuing enabling customers to takeaway nuggets of knowledge that will help them host their own perfect outdoor events.
“AB’s chefs have been selected for both the high standard of culinary skills they possess as well as their friendliness and ability to interact with customers. They pride themselves on being able to help the restaurant’s valued guests create their own great barbecue cuisine, thereby enabling them to make the most of the fantastic sunny weather we enjoy in Dubai,” added said Razeen Parambil, General Manager Mayfair Restaurants.
AB’s is committed to ensuring that their diners’ experience is of the highest standard. The company operates a ‘no-tips’ policy, meaning that customers feel comfortable knowing that there are no additional charges. A measure of Absolute Barbecues’ commitment to providing the best is its customer relationship team that solicits diners’ opinions in order to evaluate its offerings. The team is responsible for achieving 20% of customers’ feedback within 48 hours of their visit.
Absolute Barbecue offers a variety of dining options, with a buffet lunch available from 12-4pm and a buffet dinner from 6pm-12am. There are also Friday and Saturday brunch options.
