The menu will offer a large spread buffet featuring international cuisines, including Eastern Mediterranean, Asian, Mexican and European with live cooking stations of fresh breads, saj, crepes; among others.  The dining experience will be underpinned by enchanting Turkish and Egyptian menus by two visiting Chefs who will be flown in from the region to join the culinary team to handcraft an authentic Turkish and Egyptian experience that will entice all taste buds and preferences.

The interior will be an evolution of the garden feel of last year’s edition, and will showcase inspiration of a rich and charming garden using landscape materials like brick, slate and stunning indoor flooring, while garden objects including garden gazebos and urns will add to the inviting touches of the tent. With seating arrangements made up of fashioned iron tables, usually seen on a patio or a terrace, the décor will also be coupled with tall plant stands, garden walls, tables topped with branches and blossoms, and beautiful floral printed throw pillows; all of which to create a wonderful garden-like atmosphere, bringing comfort and prestige all under one roof.

As for dessert, guests will be able to indulge in the return of the famous chocolate room, featuring a theme around the storytelling of the legendary tree of life of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Pastry Chefs will also be creating scrumptious chocolate confections including fondue, truffles, corals and bonbons, with chocolate art walls and plenty of edible artwork, as well as cocoa bean concoctions for everyone to taste. Lastly, the Iftar buffet will also present the making of the Turkish Ice Cream – Dondurma.

The Khayma offers an indoor and outdoor smoking section offering a selection of traditional as well as special-flavors of shisha.

Guests will also have the option to enjoy additional comfort by selecting the dedicated service of their own private pergola for Iftar and Ghabgha which offers a silverware service; a popular venue for the most discerning guests in search of a refined service.
