Cannot find fault

Great buffet choice, from roast dinner to pasta to fish and pizza. Our party was 2 adults, a 3 and 8 year old. Desserts were a little fussy for my boys, but the staff got them ice cream instead. The food was great, as were the staff and it was a cracking atmosphere.

Fantastic people!. We went for a soup close to our place and end up eating in the Buffet. Such a lovely people! Smiling all the time. Very simple food, but very good quality.

Living in the area I have tried all the hotel buffets but not his one as it always seemed hidden away. Went along on a Thursday night buffet and was surprised to see a Spanish duo singing live spanish and western pop songs live in the restaurant. It set a nice atmosphere and made the meal entertaining and more that... More

One of my favourite Friday brunch buffets in Dubai and without doubt one of the best. The al-Fattan building itself is a little soulless and sterile but once you enter Thyme you find yourself cocconed in a very warm and cosy environment with wooden beams on ceiling, whitewashed walls and archways and parquet flooring – very Mediterranean, very inviting.
