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. The concept of dining around the 3 restaurants is great (Asian at Bamboo Lagoon, international at the Market place and German) There were 2 options available - alcohol package for 375 AED and 275 AED for non alcoholic. We chose the alcoholic one. The selection of the drinks... More

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! The large buffet offers a wide selection of Thai, Polynesian and Indonesian cuisine and, at first blush,... More

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.
