My wife has already put a review of our stay at this hotel. It was very thorough. I am writing this to back up everthing that she wrote with photographs.
photo 1- The rice, as can be seen was grey and very dry on top. It was a glutinous mess.
photo 2- This is the "Hammour fillet crusted with almond flakes" Though from the texture it could be seen to be fish, in fact it tasted nothing like Hammour and was soggy.
photo 2- "Roasted" vegetables swimming in oil.
photo 4- what was this? Polenta was the description, I personally have never seen it served like this.
photo 5/6 prepared dishes loooked ok, but not too sure about the unchilled chicken meat.
photo 7- These starters, though looking tempting, left one wondering what some of them were. Lack of labelling here.
photo 8- even worse lack of labelling here. No account seems to have been taken as to whether guests should be informed - not only to what some of the dishes were, but also what they contained.
photo 9- Though these to meat bowls were set into a chilled base, the colour of the top layer of chicken did not encourage me to eat any of it. The beef bacon wrapped sausages might have tasted nice if cooked and served fresh. Howver when I asked for one, the attendant served one of those that can be seen on the griddle, it was tough, rubbery and inedible.
I should add here that we have been working in Oman for eight years and have stayed in many other hotels in the Sultanate. There are far more 3-4 star establioshments that offer finer fare than the Jebel Safawiy Hotel.
