Visited a couple of times over the years.. and it's always nice to come here. It's pretty much packed ..great selections of asian delights... a bit pricey but you must expect it for a Buddha Bar chain! Enjoy!

This place is one of the best lounge and business dinner spot in Dubai. I was very regular to this place since last five years. but last week I have visited on a business dinner. Truly Buddha Bar maintained the same standards.

Our first time at the Dubai based one (have been to the one in Paris many times) and we had a blast! The decor is very nice and the ambiance as well. We only went for drinks but will go for dinner soon as I hear the food is delicious. Great place to unwind after a hard week!

although we didn't eat the place was packed. We sat at the bar and had drinks but the food looked great. The atmosphere was unreal along with the music. Pricier than most places in Dubai but well worth a visit.

Staying at Grosvenor, a visit to the Buddha Bar is a must. Food is excellent and a mix and fusion of Asian delights. Superfriendly service and really good for having either private or business dinner

We extremely enjoyed the Asian food served in Buddha Bar. The starters, mains and desert were all excellent. We particularly enjoyed the Peanut Butter desert which was very tasty! The service was of a very high standard and we would highly recommend eating at Buddha Bar!

All in all a great experience at the Buddah bar.. We do not eat fish therefore we ordered the duck and the beef and both of which where amazing.

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
