The Fareast Seafood Market is anything BUT a market. Upscale and elegant, it is located on the second floor of the Regent Palace Hotel in Bur Dubai. What's different about this seafood-restaurant is that you choose your food not from a menu - your waiter/waitress will pick you up from your table and escort you to the fish-bar. There the choices begin: first you pick which fish you will eat (if you are like us without much knowledge about fish, you'll just point and say "That one!"), then you decide how you want your fish prepared (fried, grilled, broiled, etc.). Next you go to the vegetable-bar and pick your veggies straight into a neat little shopping basket. Lastly you decide on the side dishes (rice, noodles, etc.) and how you'd like those prepared. Your waiter/waitress then escorts you back to your table, and brings your pickings to the kitchen for preparation.
While you wait for your food, you get served a huge bowl of French Fries - watch out not to spoil your appetite with those things, since they are extremely filling...but also very tempting. :-)
The restaurant itself is elegant, with a waterfall and a small "stream" containing live goldfish (No, you cannot order these for dinner!). You have to cross the stream using a small wooden bridge to get to the fish bar.
Favorite Dish: The food was well prepared. We had fish-soup, followed by squid and red snapper with vegetables and glass noodles. All the dishes were extremely tasty.
An absolute MUST is the fruit-flavored ice-tea.
Address: Inside the Regent Palace Hotel
Comparison: more expensive than average
