Just returned from dinner at Sadaf restaurant and was slightly disappointed. We opted for the buffet and the salads were not too fresh, and most drenched with mayonnaise... There was quite a lot of choices for main: from curry to kebabs and stews, as well as half a goat feom the pit.. However, not many sides or veggies apart from... More

Chose to eat here as was staying at the nearby Crowne Plaza. Excellent buffet choice. Amazing flavours, never really had much Persian cuisine before. The fish curry was very good. Lots of fresh Arabic bread too. Very good value in Dubai and easy to get to.

This restaurant was my favorite since 1993. I visited it many times in different branches. Now there are better restaurants although it has good things so far.

I have a friend who drops down quarterly and he has to visit sadaf or he isn't pleased with himself. Everything is good if not amazing. Always a variety of options, fresh along with diligent and polite staff. Dessert didn't impress me too much this visit, but to be honest I barely had any space left and was forcing myself.... More

It was a disappointing visit. I have been to Sadaf several time in the past and use to enjoy the buffet. However, after the renovation, this was my first visit. The quality has been compromised and so has the variety of the food. Though it is bigger and and more spacious but the food was a big disappointment.

This restaurant is a success story. They have respected the local culture and offer the same in their design where you have privacy of your cabin and female servers. The best chello kebab in town and what a wonderful experience. Must try!
