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.

Had breakfast and an evening meal in the restaurant and as a fussy vegetarian found the selection great, very tempted to overeat due to the vast choice. Chocolate fountain for breakfast wow....... Top notch staff and beautiful food, definitely visit.

Enjoyed the meal, but I guess Friday Brunch in Dubai is more about the party than the food. The range of dishes was amazing and every dish was perfectly cooked. It is good value if you are going to have a full go at the extensive range of drinks on offer.

When you stay at the Atlantis Hotel you can opt for 'Half Board' (i.e. breakfast and lunch or dinner) - this means you can eat in pretty much all their top class restaurants. On site there are two 'buffet' restaurants and Saffron is one of them. I have to say that usually I'm not a huge fan of buffets only... More
