Had I wanted to experience the atmosphere of a kids playground, I would go to Taza or a fast food outlet. The sad thing was there were no staff nor management who... More

Spice Island has something for everyone. I loved the sushi, crab legs, hummus, and selection of Asian dishes. Their Indian selection looked amazing but I was full by the time I got to that area!!!

Visited with business colleagues on recommendation & was not disappointed. Range of food was excellent some of which is cooked while you wait - my favourite. Various types of food from over the world. Also serve alcohol (always worth knowing before booking a restaurant in Dubai).

Wide variety of food in buffet, really interesting and difficult to try everything. Their pricing is bit expensive but still worth trying. They have also got deal at cobone and the entertainer, which makes it reasonable in pricing. Recommended to go for it for Asian food lovers.

There's a large selection of meats, seafood etc on display (including lobster and prawns), however one of our party is a vegan (no meat, cheese, dairy, animal products), and she was overwhelmed by the vast selection of food that she had to choose from at...

This is one of those buffet restaurants that offer food from around the world. It works very well as the packages includes Beers and other choices. The best station is the seafood area with grilled Lobster and Giant prawns.
