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.

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

While some of the reviews were not great our travel company said this was OK and we tried it and they were right and a lot of the reviews in our opinion rated the restaurant wrongly. It was one of the best oriental buffets we have eaten at and the way it was set out let you pick and chose... 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. Whatever I try and even admire in other hotels, I always think and know that Bamboo Lagoon is the best. Somehow the Marriott seems to win hands down with two things:... More

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!!!

I have been here for brunch a couple of times. It is my new favourite for brunch in Dubai. 275 AED with no alcohol and 375 with a full range of drinks, not just beer and wine. The food is mainly Asian but quite varied. You can also sample the German food from the Hofbrauhaus on the same floor. I'm... More
