Decent for the given price

Excellent Service and decent food. There is no live cooking option. Overall clean and healthy food specially having with a GroupOn. DimSum was tasty... good option on fruit counter. Only negative - Cakes and pastry selection was stale and hard to munch.

Enjoyed the lavish buffet dinner spread. Well-stocked salad bar, arabic mezze, soups and starters. There was a live pasta counter and a fish grill. Along with duck, turkey, there were at least 2 types each of lamb, beef and chicken. Not much seafood except for prawn dumplings but still worth every dirham! The dessert bar was fabulous. Will definitely be... More

In our opinion even though the hotel is perfect, the food at Hoi Ann was clearly not as delicious as the Hoi Ann restaurant at Shangri La hotel in Dubai. Not the same quality and slow service even though the staff was very friendly

Breakfast had a nice variety of food. There were selections of all different types of food. One negative was that it seemed that the prior day's stir fry Asian noodle dish and the beef in oyster sauce was put out again (leftovers). Not sure if I cam correct on this, but it It tasted old and not fresh. The dinner... More

This restaurant offers a wide variety of buffet selection. I particularly love their steak section and the Chinese section. Food was delicious. Unfortunately, the dessert section is not well stocked. The restaurant had a very chic interior I find it very hard to enjoy the meal when you have children running around and screaming in the background. It will probably... More

Live cooking is nice, Variety of food is satisfactory, restaurant setup is cozy, salads are always fresh and finally desserts are ok. Parking is always easy to find in the Adnec adjacent building. They offer you free soft... More

The different food choices at the buffet was really good, one had enough to choose from, a bit of Chinese dim sums, a bit of Japanese, a bit of Indian and Lebanese cuisine. Enough to fulfill everybody's choice. The ala carte menu was also very good. Good waiters, very friendly and helpful.

I stayed at ALOFT for several days due to its proximity to ADNEC and decided to try all of its dining options, including its main restaurant, Dine. *Liked best - the convenience and location to ADNEC; the many mix and match options for the lunch buffet (e.g, hot buffet only, salad buffet only, or with dessert buffet, or all...); the...
