“Food is average and portions are small!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

This was the closest to our chalet at the Hilton and we decided, based on the reviews on TA, to give it a try. In the future, we will simply avoid.
The food we were served was nothing special; we ate the weirdest fried calamari, or rather I should say tiny fried strips of something. The rest of the meal was a bit better, though nothing special, and the portions were very small. We actually walked out a bit hungry.
The desserts (ours and those served to other tables around) were uninteresting variations on vanilla ice cream. We got the one with strawberries.
Given the food AND the bill, we were totally unimpressed and expected much better!

“Passage to Asia, is a path you do not want to take”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Staying at Hilton and trying their Asian restaurant called passage to Asia is a place you don't wanna try for food experience, unless you like setting outside in the warm weather cause a restaurant is fully booked while after finishing the meal no one came inside "what reservation is there then?", cockroach falling from the ceiling right into your food or crawling on your wife shoulder isn't pleasant at all, I wonder what kind of cleanliness in the kitchen, staff is like robots, even when faced with a situation shows no empathy and answers the same old record, manager or whoever in charge didn't show up even in such situation, food is below average may be one item out of 4 came with the correct taste. I'm not sure about the rest of my stay.... Shame on Hilton RAK

“Lovely setting and fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

This is our 4th visit to Hilton RAK Resort & Spa and we have never been disappointed with the service at Passage to Asia or the food which is excellent. As Coeliac I have been looked after extremely well particularly by Moshey who offered superb customer service both at breakfast and dinner. The Brazilian BBQ next door is also a must try (Pure Vida) where the staff are equally as accommodating, & the is food amazing.
