My wife and I were invited to the launch of the Surf & Turf Brunch at Thanani Restaurant in Al Zorah Golf Club. This restaurant is located in Ajman and specializes in modern European cuisine with Arabic influences. The event showcased a taste of selected specialties under head chef Ricardo Menta’s new brunch menu.
As we are based in Sharjah, Thanani was not too long a drive heading to Ajman and locating Al Zorah. Seldom do we get invitations to other emirates so this was a welcome notice to visit the restaurant and check out its offerings.

We arrived a quarter past 3 and the event was still starting. It’s great to finally dine open air in the UAE as the weather is much cooler now that we’re welcoming winter season.
Thanani restaurant is an urban sanctuary tucked in Ajman’s Al Zorah Pavilion and takes pride in having an amazing outdoor terrace area with a panoramic view of the Al Zorah creek. True enough, seeing the expansive greenery was a feast for my eyes, away from the buildings and even the desert sand.

Surf & Turf Brunch at Thanani
Thanani dishes are created so that it can be shared with family, friends and colleagues. Their a la carte items are reasonably priced after checking the menu from their website and having a taste at the quality of the food.
The buffet station had cooked shrimps, salmon and oysters, salads and breads. The Live station offered chicken fillets, tiger prawns, steaks, smoked beef and burgers. Among the grilled items, the chicken fillet and the tiger prawns were really good.
We also had a sample of their desserts which were nicely presented, as well as some of their house drinks. For the beverages, you should try the Honey Melon Swing.

Terrace View at Thanani
As what the restaurant boasts, a main highlight from Thanani is the terrace as you will be greeted by a calming view of a mangrove forest and creek filled with flamingos. Much more this winter season, it would be another opportunity to dine al fresco as you get comfortable with this relaxing scene.
The event timing was also great as we were able to catch the sunset from the terrace before we were to head home.
