This is defnitely NOT a FINE DINING restaurant. It's good for casual dinners just not special occasions. The food is good, the variety is GREAT......the polynesian band is pretty great too. Opt for a table by the band. it took about 25mins to get the cheque at the end of the night and 45 minutes for them to get a... More

Food was good. Wide selection, well cooked. Was stuffed afterwards! Unfortunately the drinks service didn't match up. I was sat on an area at the back of the restaurant, where no waiters passed. I thus had to go searching for a waiter on two occasions to get another drink / clear my plates.

One of the best dinner buffet I attended, with repeated visits, over the last years, when in Dubai. Tasty fresh sushis and sashimi, fresh seafood and giant camarons with fresh fish and vegetables cooked at your taste, Thaï and Chinese (small) buffet, nice dessert buffet. At reasonable price (with or without alcool option).

As soon as you walk in, the bamboo theme comes alive. There's ponds all around, with pretty fish swimming about, and there's pastoral greenery all around which adds to this gorgeous setting. The staff are lovely, and are welcoming, they offered us drinks, and explained the buffet. It's all you can eat, and there are numerous stations, Duck, fish, Chinese,... More

Location: the location is not an excellent one considering the busy saroundings of the J.W. Marriot in Dubai, and the traffic in that area. Decoration: it's a place not in Dubai, but a bit smaller than should be, so it gets congested. The ambiance: It has it's own atmosphere and a lovely lively band that involves the public. Food: fresh,... More

The restaurant itself was beautifully designed.the service was really good and attentive, the teppanyaki station with choices of seafood was a good one, it was busy for a Sunday night and it takes a lot of time to wait, since there's only one chef do the live cooking! The rest of the Asian dishes are mostly empty since I came... More

Various food but staffs really need good training! We did not get a proper table which I booked. Also we did not feel welcome at all from the beginning. I am not sure that why did not get an offer for welcome drinks. And no smile at all... wow!! It was my favourite buffet but not any more!!!
