The Experience by Reif Othman is available as a 12 course or 16 course tasting menu, with seating for just four guests…

While at the helm of homegrown restaurant Play, chef Reif Othman opened an intimate 12-seater chef’s table concept one floor above the restaurant in the H Hotel. Called The Experience by Reif Othman, it was a brilliant culinary concept, with the celebrated local chef creating an inventive menu of his best dishes and presenting them to each guest.

And, two months after opening his new restaurant REIF in Darl Wasl Mall, Reif Othman is bringing back his fantastic chef’s table concept. This time around, there will be only four seats at The Experience by Reif Othman, with diners invited to perch up at the pass of Reif’s Dar Wasl restaurant.

Available from Monday November 18, Reif will personally cook for his guests, with both a 12-course and 16-course ‘omakase’ tasting menu available.

Each menu will run for one month before changing, with a different culinary theme given to each. For the first month from November 18 to December 13, the tasting menu will focus on showcasing the finest sushi using premium Japanese seafood, while from December 16 to January 10, The Experience menu will be dedicated to Wagyu cuts.

The 12 course menu is priced at Dhs350, while the 16 course menu is priced at Dhs550, excluding drinks. It’s available for a minimum of two guests and maximum of four, and pre-booking is essential.

REIF recently began accepting reservations daily, with reservations available for lunch from 12.30pm to 3.30pm and for dinner between 6.30pm and 11.30pm.
