Sayad is a seafood restaurant in the Emirates Palace hotel and is absolutely fabulous....it's definitely a couples restaurant and totally unsuitable for children. It's fine dining with a superb menu and lovely wine, be warned tho you can't buy wine by the glass here it's bottles only and our fairly standard bottle worked out to around £90 so it's not... More

We ordered the fresh platter for 2. What the waiter failed to tell us was the scollops and prawns were from 3 days ago. They were frozen and thawed and were watery and no taste! Fish came with no lemon. Service was appalling and we were not offered a wine menu. Glasses were often empty and we had to ask... More

The reality is somewhat less. Ingredients, such as the fish, are of high quality. The way of preparation lacks... More

The food was really amazing, I ate in this restaurant three times and I had the opportunity to try the fish, that was really fantastic, and also the other dishes from the menu which they had the perfect combination between the taste and the different type of food. I fully recommend this restaurant not only for the food but also... More

When staying at Emirates Palace, had two evening meals at the Sayad. We were on half board and ate from table d'hôte menu, which had a good selection available. Service was excellent and staff very friendly. Top quality restaurant.
