“Dine with the planes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

While the aeroplane is about to touch the ground Shah Amanat International Airport you can see a bright name flashing River View Restaurant and immediately you start to wonder how a dining experience in that restaurant would feel. As I was lucky, I went to this restaurant immediately after landing in Chittagong City. The dining experience here is very hard to match. In one side of the restaurant is the river Karnaphuli and on the other side is the runway of the airport. Every now and then you get to watch planes taking off. The best time for having food here would be evening.

Now, the food here is very good with some down points. We ordered Cashew Nut Salad, Fish Cake, Shik Kabab, Lobster, Raita and Parata. Fish Cake was so-so. The Cashew Nut salad was good with mixture of Chicken and prawn. Then the lobster was also very good. Every small bite of that lobster reminded me about the freshness of seafood. The Shik Kabab was again so-so, being too salty for me. But the cook was perfect as it was not too hard to cut and at the same time not to fragile that a touch of spoon breaks it. Finally, the raita salad was also good with balanced mixtures.
