Large Array of Very Tasty Food

Lunch at Danial consists of a large buffet of very good food. Most of the dishes are Iranian. I found everything I chose to be quite good, and some was great. The assortment is simply amazing and nearly everything appeared quite fresh. The restaurant is located inside a very small indoor shopping... read more

Best place for Friday post-church, post-prayer eats. A huge selection of persian stews and kabobs along with seafood, salads, desserts, and a torshi bar. Always well under 200 aed for a family of four.

Daniel boasts a buffet of unparalleled variety and value for money. I can only assume it is through the number of daily customers that they make any money. The sheer content of each station will shock you, from their salads and starters to seafood which includes crab, shrimps, and at least three different fish dishes, to their mains – they... More

Went during the week for lunch as one of my colleague. Was there slightly after noon and the place was nearly empty which means that the food had hardly been touched. Impressed by the selection of meat from kebab to chicken cooked in all sorts, grilled fish and prawns. Great variety of curries and Iranian specialties. Did not have much... More

This place offers a low cost buffet of Iranian food. The quality is average and so is the variety of food. It is ideal for a large group of people with children and limited budget. The place could do with improvements on choices, and quality of food.

This is a good restaurant for people who likes Persian food. They have a variety of food for everyone who want to enjoy a good meal while in town. My favorite drink is lemon with mint. Nice choices of sea food also.

The Persian taste that Danial Restaurant is offering is something a hungry customer would always long for. If you'd like to have another cuisine aside from Persian, they also have continental cuisine. The variety of menus will surely satisfy your meal. As I have mentioned in my post/review on my blog, Danial is affordable buffet kind of rest that is... More
