Description: Saffron presents dining drama within a vibrantly bold, contemporary setting created by award-winning New York restaurant designer Adam Tihany. Asia is a big place and our chefs thrive on the challenge of making sure the twenty theatrical cooking stations at Saffron offer a taste of every region. The preparation and presentation of international cuisine, with an emphasis on Asian specialties, becomes a culinary art form where diners enjoy an interactive dining experience as they sample food from open cooking areas throughout the restaurant.

Predominantly Chinese but all tastes catered for. Found it very pleasant and staff were excellent. No point in paying more to go to the posh places.

Didn't enjoy eating here, breakfast or dinner - too busy, it was like a cattle market! Many people pushing and jumping queues for food!

We went to this resturant numerous times whilst staying at the hotel, the choice of food was excellent, the Sushi was amazing and my daughter loved the Chocolate Fountain! The staff were incredible and nothing was an issue, my daughter was obsessed with the manager Raj and he treated her like a true VIP even going to get her breakfast... More

Went for a friends birthday there were 12 fo us for bunch. The music was excellent and all appeared quite organised and staff efficient. The food was barely average, yes lots of choices but that doesn't make the food good. The roast beef was chewy and tasteless, the beans weren't cooked and the roasted veg was mushy. The pork belly...

Book in advance because the famous brunch at Saffron gets full quite fast. Once you will go you will understand why. The great atmosphere, the vast selection of food (varying from several different cuisine types) and the various drink stations are fantastic making it an excellent place to enjoy with friends. Fun is guaranteed and the cool-easy-going vibe sets you... More

I met two girls at the Etisilat store at Dubai mall and exchanged contact info. I texted them on Friday morning asking about Friday brunch options. One didn't know but the other recommended me to saffron. She didn't tell me it was a buffet, as I am not a fan of buffets. I am glad she kept this a mystery... More
