Very good Saturday Buffet

I wasn't expecting much as the reviews seemed very so-so. However, I was really pleased 100% thumbs up. Great selection, Sushi, Indian, Chinese, Arabian, European, Dips/tapas, desserts - ALL very good. Honestly I just went for a buffet in Dubai at a fancy 5+ place at double the price of Cuiscene... read more

Disgusting Food, a waste of time and money. Rancid food, smells like hell!. I left earlier before I feel 1/4 full!.... the Quality of the food 0/10. Crowded, value of money is nothing!

I had gone for Valentine Day dinner today (14/2/2015). While we liked the ambience, the food was not to the expectation. Indian food preparation was below standard except the Lucknow Biriyani which was good. Naan was quite hard and stiff. No other choice of rotis as well. There was no vegetarian soup. We were promised of a mushroom soup which... More

We chose CuiScene for an intimate family dinner and we were very pleased with our choice. The quality and variety of the food available is fantastic! Even though it is a seafood buffet, the variety of seafood dishes is vast and every one delicious. With the cooler weather now upon us, sitting outside gives you a great intimate atmosphere. The...

We had brunch with friends. Food was good on the whole, the prawn Ravioli was to die for! How ever the afternoon was spoilt by the lack of service. Ordering drinks took ages, first finding our waiter then how long it took to arrive! My bottled beer in particular took the longest always last and the waiter seemed to be... More

as a seafood buffet lover, we visited this buffet on thursday night, the buffet is good and has grilled lobsters and variety of sushis and fish etc, the only downside is the atmosphere, kids and no romantic touch in the place as it lacks music and decoration, also the place is bit small compared to other buffets such as atlantis...

Decided to try the buffet option rather than the Al carte menu which was reasonably priced in fairness. The buffet had a huge selection of Asian, Indian, Arabic and Greek foods all of which are freshly prepared and served to a high quality. This restaurant in the hotel is a hidden gem that is not well published by the Fairmont... More

I had my going away brunch gathering at this wonderful hotel and had a great time there. The food quality was tops and there was a wide variety of options. The service was great and plenty of seating as well as parking. I seated a group of about 40 people and received all thumbs up about the brunch. Yes, it... More
