June 27,2018, my friend suddenly craved for a hot pot (shabu-shabu) and since we were in Sharjah that time,we just decided to search online..and the nearest to us was the Al Bahar Al Thahbi Restaurant..and as we checked the customers review,it is quite fair ;) so we’ve searched the location and immediately went there. When we were in the vicinity, we asked some bystanders if they knew the restaurant..and all of their answers were “no”..what they knew was just the crystal plaza..so we went to the building and asked the staff in information..he didn’t even know the name of the restaurant,we just told him,Chinese restaurant, and that was time he directed us to go to the 1st floor.. At the first floor,you can find 4 restaurants, and and Al Bahar Al Thahbi is near the elevator.
Ms.Rihana,the Chinese woman/owner/cook immediately accommodated us and offered us a seat,then the waiter took our orders.Since my friend was craving for a hot pot, that’s what we’ve ordered.. while waiting,they gave us tasty sunflower and pumpkin seeds..few minutes later, Ms.Rihanna gave us a free Kong Bao, one of their best sellers(stewed tofu,with diced carrots and bell pepper), and started to gave us tips on how we can enjoy the Shabu-Shabu in the right way.. ;) she even offered us her secret sauce combination which is the best match for Shabu-shabu.. she was the one who poured the ingredients in the hot pot, and put the soup,food, sauces on our plates. She was so accommodating ;) she was like a mother to us during that time, and we really felt at home ;) She shared the history of the restaurant and how she started.
Overall experience was nice, food and services were both okay..
We can recommend it to our friends and other readers who want to experience the same services and those who want to eat chinese cuisine ;) it is also affordable by the way ;)
