The Arabian decoration and display in conjunction with the Wafa Hotel & Apartment’s Arabic Food Festival 2017
 

Wafa Hotel & Apartment inaugurates the first Arabic Food Festival 2017 last weekend at Annajat Complex. The partner for The Arabic Food Festival is Gwad Basha Arabian Restaurant & Catering (one of my favourite Arabian cuisine in Brunei). I just came back from Saudi Arabia and it makes me crave for the Arabian food more.

The food promotion aims to enthrall the patrons and diners with a myriad of enchanting flavours from the Arabic lands and this also gives Wafa Hotel & Apartment’s guests and customers to enjoy and indulge in the food and fantasies of an Arabian feast located on the 3rd floor of Wafa Hotel & Apartment.

You will also get to see a Middle Eastern ambience and decorations to feel the ambience of Middle Eastern.

The Arabian food promotion will run from 23rd December until 6th January 2018. Now with payday and bonus season, I would highly recommend you to check their food.

For further information, you can contact Wafa Hotel & Apartment at 242 5889. The hotel is located at Annajat Complex, the newly opened building near the Beribi Roundabout.
