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.

This buffet's choices are endless. But in many ways overwhelming! We never were all seated at the same time as everyone was always going to fetch a drink or some bread etc. I think they do a good job of catering to the variety of guests with many ethnic cuisines. This part is great. Just go there if u r... More

Breakfasted at Saffron once, but found it a little more "hectic" that Kaleidoscope. Same quality and choice of food and the staff were just as attentive, but it just wasn't quite as relaxing.

Me and my wife had a great time and had a satisfying night on the Asia Asia themed dinner of Saffron. Since it's our first time there, we tried almost all dishes and everything is superb! We will definitely come back to try the other themed buffets! And we'll be recommending it to friends and family!

I've only been during their boozy Friday brunch but it was fantastic. Well beyond my expectations and I've been to many brunches in Dubai before. The food tasted amazing and the drinks were outstanding - very definitely the best drinks i've ever had. Often these places scrimp on food to showcase their drinks but this wasn't the case at all....

The only downside is the few pounds you'll add after dining in... More

it may be a good restaurant but not for breakfast. After paying a high price, I was not able to find healthy choices. Everyhing high fat, high calories, high carbs may have been on offer but if you look for a clean breakfast to start your day, you are left with eggs cooked at your desire... Not enough for the...
