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!!!

Great place to eat inside hotel J.W. Marriot in the city centre. You are already in love when you enter the restaurant. It's like being in jungle. There is also a band in the middle of the huge restaurant which doesn't play too loud so you can talk with your frieds and enjoy the atmosphere. Middle priced even with wine... More

Thursday night & Friday Brunch. 250 without booze, 350 with a decent selection of drinks, from beer to cocktails. As well as the Bamboo Lagoon buffet, you are provided an arm band, which allows you access to a spread from The Hofbrauhaus German pub, including crispy pork belly & Bavarian fruity mustard, & even to The Market Place restaurant, with...
