This was our first Friday brunch since we moved to Abu Dhabi earlier this year. The "Ingredients" is the main restaurant in Anantara hotel located in Eastern Mangroves, some 15-20 minutes drive from the city center. The place is nicely set up with both, indoor and outdoor seating areas, and numerous food stalls. Variety of food (keeping in mind significant decrease in the number of customers during pandemic), is good enough. A lot of fresh seafood, sushi and sashimi. However, mouthwatering tiger prawns which were initially displayed before brunch started, miraculously disappeared minutes after. The number of main courses is quite limited, and the only beef dish that we tried (medallions in mushroom sauce, I assume), was quite chewy. The service in general was good, except for one Filipina waitress who was exceptionally rude and impolite. In contrary, Belorussian head waitress was a real darling. To sum this up, Ingredients is surely not the place you keep returning to, but worth trying once.More
This is my experience today (23/04/2021) at the restaurant Ingredients, at Anantara Eastern Mangroves, for an Iftar. I booked my table by phone on Wednesday and today (Friday), when I arrived, they did not have my name on the list and, consequently, no table arranged for me. The only that they could arrange was outside, and the weather was a bit hot and humid. And I had called and booked the table 2 days before, so this was already a first bad impression. Then, the restaurant was quite crowded, the food was not that good. Honestly, comparing the food there with other buffets (like Giornotte at Ritz Carlton, or Urban Kitchen at Dusit Thani and more recently an Iftar where I went again at Ritz Carlton, the difference is quite big, for the worse, at Ingredients). At Ritz Carlton or Urban Kitchen, the staff is always serving us all the dishes, because of the Covid 19, and their attention to us is excellent and on the spot. I did not felt this at Ingredients, since we had sometimes to pick up food using material that was already being used by other guests, and the staff seemed to be somewhat stressed with the work. Probably, because of the high number of people at the restaurant. Honestly, I believe this was a first and only experience at this restaurant, since I did not felt the joy and pleasure of being there like I experienced when I went to Urban Kitchen (1 time I visit here), or even more comparing with Giornotte, at Ritz Carlton, where I go quite often to Friday brunches and I went recently to an Iftar, and their service is superb.More
Amazing in all aspects. Staff, food quality, buffet menu, clean, safe, location, view. Janak, Ramzi and chef Waleed were fantastic. Very welcoming and helpful. We really had good time and looking forward to come back again. More
The Ingredients Restaurant is an amazing place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is a very attentive and friendly staff, and the food is really delicious. The culinary team of the restaurant works very well, and I would like to pay tribute especially to two gentlemen. Mr. Idin Asmitha is a hard-working executive chef. He is highly creative and can work under enormous pressure, while being able to maintain consistency and accept new challenges. Executive chef Idin is a professional in all aspects of the culinary arts. Mr. Bambang Sumanto is one of the chefs driven by passion. You can always see his eagerness to help guests and satisfy their wishes. Chef Bambang is definitely an asset for the food section of the Ingredients Restaurant. I can highly recommend this restaurant.More
