BAMBOO LAGOON - A food feast to relish

Great attentive timely service from a young lad named Vivek. The variety of food plus the different hot food cooking stations made sure we did not have to wait too long. Seafood was fresh and in abundance. Quality was consistent.

This place is simply amazing. The all what you can eat / drink concept breaks all reservations / concerns that may prevent some one from enjoying the best they could. The highlight of all is the band, playing contemporary tracks on to traditional Maori Beat. No electronic music and yelling from bottom of the throat means music at its best.... More

Good spread of PanAsian cuisine. I specially love the teppanyaki (oh my the lobsters!!), chinese and japanese sections. The ambiance is relaxing, nestled in a "bamboo lagoon" theme. The trickles of the "lagoon" water helps sets a relaxing dining experience. Service is great, the serving staff are very accommodating making sure you have everything you need and offering something you... More

A very beautiful atmosphere of bamboo and Thai music. The Asian and Thai seafood is very tasty and well prepared. The restaurant has several bar stations with different specialties. The Mongolian cook station is excellent but slow with just one cook. The sushi is very good as is the soup bar. But it's not very busy but the staff is... More

If you like dim sum, Jumbo Prawns, lobser & tom yum soup, Bambo Lagon is the right place to come, we enjoyed the food and amaying ambience, well decorated with good lightening. Mongolian barbeque is a must. Delicious!

After trying so many buffets experimenting and exploring my choices in Dubai, I always come back to Bamboo Lagoon - a buffet I discovered more than 10 years ago.

We came it at a perfect time as it was the Asian themed day and not just one buffet outlet but also you can go around the next restaurants such The Market Place and Hofbrahaus. it was a jam-packed tummy for me and friends! Worth paying it!!!
