We were looking for a place where we could dine for the new Year’s eve and we decided to try out the Jeans Grill. We wanted a place which was away from the crowd and this place fitted the bill perfectly. We had booked a table close to the window.That day they had decorated the whole place and had some raffle draws;unfortunately we didn’t get anything….they even distributed party caps,whistles,balloons and much more.At the stroke of 12,the lights were turned off and everyone was blowing the whistles and beating on the tables and the staff were going around wishing everyone ‘A Happy New Year’
Coming back to the food,it was a good spread with soups,salads and plentiful dishes which included lamb chops,honey roasted duck,creamy shrimp,steak,kebabs,shrimp and mutton biriyani.The food was kind off bland but it was a nice change.The desserts were a tragedy.We gave it a slip as we were loaded.It was a nice relaxing evening and we spent almost close to 4hrs in the restaurant.
Jeans grill is located in the first floor of The Sultan Centre,Salmiya.
Wataniya has been going bang bang with their 10th anniversary. I really liked their campaign “Red is passion”. I am a regular user of their website for recharging my prepaid line. The website has underwent a major revamp, and surprisingly the theme is not red, its a total change from their previous theme of red and gold, which had a royal feel. The new layout is a clear layout and they have managed to put almost all the important info in the home page itself. I am a great fan of clear layouts and this website is also pleasing to the eyes. There is also an option to customize the home page with WBOX. Without doubt Wataniya seems to have a good media team, the below ad is another example of their class.
