Buffet at its best!

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

Tried again this buffet restaurant and once again it didn't disappoint me. Wide selections of food whether it is sushi or thai or other Asian dishes, it was really wonderful. Service from start till end was very attentive and engaging. However, I think it is little more expensive as compared to market other restaurants pricing.

We had an evening meal with our friends at Bamboo lagoon yesterday.

We chose the alcoholic one. The selection of the drinks... More

If you are living in Dubai, you should definately try this thai restaurant which brings total authentic thai food along with other asian variety of food such as sushi. However, there are not much vegetarian option and buffet is little expensive. Service is very good, and I would like to go back again and again.

If I was rating this restaurant on its ambiance alone, it would be excellent. The restaurant is located in Dubai's JW Marriott Hotel and the decoration and surroundings are truly impressive: straw and wood huts, bridges, waterfalls and live entertainment with guest participation!
