Last week I came to the Buddha Restaurant and Bar Dubai. This was my 5th time there this year. The food and service had became so bad. I complained to the manager but he couldn't care less. Asked me and others in my party not to come back because they were not going to improve. I am guessing the management... More

We just went for a drink but then got lucky and got a table for dinner, so I would book as it gets very busy. Excellent food and a good atmosphere, very nice staff. I had the best Sushi I think I've ever had in there.

Excellent food, wine and service. Was not very hungry and took two smaller dishes from the grill-menu, which was perfect.

In many visits to Dubai, couldn't make the pilgrimage to Buddha Bar. On a recent trip, I remedied that It's a huge place and then some . The trick is to sit at the long table adjacent to the bar.

Great place buzzing with a fab atmosphere. Drinks and food were all great and tasty. Amazing service from the outset. Very busy place so would recommend booking in advance like I did. Great views in and out of the restaurant.

We visited to celebrate my sons 18th birthday and had an early seating so arrived before it got too busy. Beautiful surroundings and even better food. It is very pricey but it was a special occasion so ended up over £400 for 4 people and we only had 1 drink each ( one was a mocktail) Great chilled music playing... More

Loved the decor, ambience and atmosphere here. The staff were fabulous and we enjoyed a cocktail at the bar before moving into the main restaurant with its over-the-top Buddha which certainly has a "wow" about it. The food was very good - we chose satay to start and then a red prawn curry each. In true Dubai style, the wine... More

Last night my female friend and I went to Buddha Bar to visit another friend of mine I haven't seen in years. We arrived around 12:45 am, as it was Ladies Night and visited Ramusake before, which was fantastic. We asked to get in and the bouncer Willy or Villy, rudely informed us that the last drink order had already... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
