My fave Resto

when you say Asian foods? There is no better place than a buffet at Saffron. You will definitely love the food and the service plus its located in an amazing hotel (Atlantis Hotel)

Decent restaurant, good food and good selection in the whole. Tables and chairs are not a great place to sit at though, not comfortable at all.

Buffet is too large to taste it all, quality of food is average and the service is also average. When you have friends visiting dubai you can take them there for an overall experience of hotel Atlantis & the water park.

this may not disturb a lot of clients however it did disturb us, On one of the counters where they prepare fresh omelettes the cook was using the same utensils to add Pork, and other ingredients to all the guests which is a No No for Muslims, we brought it to his attention however we cannot be sure that the...

It used to be really good few years back, but now seafood buffet night is awful. Sushi smells unfresh. Grilled prawns are semi-uncooked. Food is not attractive anymore. Besides that it's very crowded.

I really not a regular visitor to the notorious Dubai Friday Brunch scene however on a special occasion with friends they are a real blast. On this occasion my old shipmates from the Navy, Wives and Girlfriends went to Saffron, The champagne was endless and the food plentiful, exotic and excellent. The staff were fantastic and all deserved medals. The... More

BE CAREFUL what you eat here! The experience was ok, but the food gave me food poison and ultimately ruined my vacation. I contacted management OVER a month ago and still have not received an appropriate response. Atlantis & Saffron have displayed little concern for the issue (no customer service). Advice: Do not trust the food!! Because you will never... More

We have been going to Saffron since in opened...yes its that good. Located in the flashy Atlantis-it is always fun. The food ranges from sushi to rotis. I cannot imagine the buffet not having something from everyone. Food quality ranges from excellent to very good-a rarity for large scale buffets. The price is right and you will may between AED...
