Yankin is positively teeming with restaurants and BBQ houses so any new-comers to the scene have to really make a splash to stand out. Thankfully Theatre2 By Burdubai as done exactly that by creating a cinematic experience for guests inside an eye-catching, two-storey, orange building with stained-glass windows.
Once you enter, you will be greeted by plenty of soft spaces to sit as well as some deeply-Instagrammable paintings on the walls. On the first floor, the VIP lounges are available to reserve as well as some LED-displays and its own mini bar. For those who love to sit outdoors, there’s also an open rooftop area on the second floor.
Upon your arrival, you will be given a complimentary packet of rainbow popcorns to add to the movie theatre ambiance. The buffet is priced at 12,900Ks per person and includes spicy pork ribs, fish paste fried chicken, mango salad with crab, steamed fish with lemon, papaya salad with mussels, seafood griddle cake, French fries and much more. For an additional 7,000Ks, you can also enjoy a free flow of beer.
Other premium dishes like the mixed grill, spicy seafood set and the premium spicy octopus salad can be ordered in addition to the buffet menu. We ordered the spicy octopus salad (5,900Ks) which was surprisingly good – and very spicy. We also tried Thai-style spicy chicken feet salad (3,500Ks) and the mixed grill with cheese sauce (5,900Ks). The chicken feet salad was quite tasty and the mixed grill came with chicken, pork, fish and prawns. But it was also good and the meat was soft and well grilled.
As it was Wednesday night it was also Ladies Night so the crowds started to gather to enjoy free-flow cocktails for ladies from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Overall, the atmosphere is good, creating a nice place to chill with friends and listen to EDM music, with a sprinkling of pop and R’n’B.
