A Middle Eastern restaurant with gorgeous views!
We were invited to The Grove and decided to make a trip down to #Ajman to see what was all the hype about on a fine Saturday noon.
The grove is located at the Al Zorah Golf club overseeing lush greens in the backyard with al fresco dining style best for the winters or even great for a shisha session with your friends. The sunset view and the peaceful vibe is one of the best part of this place. You can spend hours and not realize how quickly the time goes by.

If you have been planning for a road trip 🚘 , then why not 🙌🏻 come down to #Ajman and make your way towards a hidden gem 💎 @thegrove.ae. It is a #MiddleEastern restaurant located @alzorahgolfclub. The good news is that they are #ZomatoGold members, so we 👭 cannot wait to go back for another treat. Till then did we manage to set some #TableGoals?
Cheese Borek [AED 21]: One of our favorite starters when it comes to Arabic cuisine and these were truly amazing.
Rocca Salad [AED 23]: One of our favorite salads to order. Its tangy in flavour because of the sumac seasoning. The chopped leaves were fresh and all together tasted delicious.
Trio Dips [AED 49]: Definitely recommend this as a starter. You get 3 kinds of creamy dips with their own distinct flavor. We got the classic Hummus which is definitely one of the best we’ve had, a Hummus and muhammara mix which is slightly spicy because of the chilly paste which it is blended with and lastly mutabbal which tasted oh so good!
Cream Cheese & Oman Chips [AED 19]: Freshly baked bread stuffed with cheese and a generous shavings of Oman chips. This combination is gold and we finished it off in a couple of minutes.
Chicken Wings [AED 25]: A twist to the classic crispy wings that’s marinated in a tangy lemon and garlic mix which we absolutely loved! After one bite we could not stop ourselves from finishing them within minutes. We definitely recommend trying them.
Grove Family Mixed Grill [AED 189]: A platter of shish tawook, chicken wings, orfali kebab, halabi kebab, and chicken tikka. All the meats were grilled perfectly and they come along with a serving of fries. We added a side of garlic mayo and pickles and it was a delish combination.
Chicken Biryani [AED 49]: This one is a super rich biryani with the traditional spices along with raisins and nuts. The grilled chicken served on top was full of flavour and still juicy even after its char grill. The perfect companion to perfectly cooked aromatic basmati rice.
Chicken Pasta Loomi [AED 39]: This is similar to the alfredo pasta but with lemon flavor. We found the lemon to be overpowering for our tastebuds but for those who can handle the sour taste this might be what you are looking for.
Alfredo Pasta [AED 39]: The highlight of our meal, the cheesy flavor and the pasta was cooked perfectly. We got the pasta without the chicken for our friend, but we definitely recommend trying this because it was so good.
The portion sizes are good enough for two-three people is what we really liked which makes the place a very reasonable one.
Lotus Cake [AED 23]: The cake was a little off in flavour. Not the best we’ve had to be completely honest. Maybe less of the whipped cream and more of the lotus would have done the trick.
Saffron Milk Cake [AED 23]: The cake was soft and had the right level of sweetness but we felt that it needed more milk.
The staff was courteous and made our visit a memorable one.
The prices are reasonable for the portions being offered. Also they are listed on Zomato Gold.
We are definitely coming back for the wings and the alfredo pasta.
