The fresh cut fruits, the bread station, the cereal station and the various Asian cuisine choices make this the ideal place for breakfast. There is a healthy choice between Continental, Indian and Pan Asian cuisine here. Do not be late here as it can get quite crowded, I wish the crowd management were better.

If you are here on half board basis you now have to pay an additional 125 ADR (£20) for the privilege of eating here. The more upmarket sister to kaleidoscope with a wider range of pan Asian food, it still was not worth the upgrade fee and again felt like a cattle market to get your foods which again were... More

A crowded place with a lot of choices from Chinese and other Asian to Indian and your regular European fair. Always busy. Got to be careful as they sometimes clear your table by the time you get back from getting more stuff. Had some good stuff also some mediocre stuff. The Kaleidoscope is a bit better.

I visited the Saffron on a wednesday together with a business partner. The staff was really obliging, but due all the people and the complete open design of the restaurant it was extremely loud. We hat a small table for 2 persons, one had to sit on a chair, the other one on a bench. A normal conversation was not... More

It was our first dinner in Dubai. We have been charmed by the oriental meals choice and freshness. Outside seating is preferable because quite noisy inside. Our waiter Dinesh was very kind and available to us. Many thanks for this! We were though a bit disappointed not to be able to go back because of Chinese New year and related... More

This brunch has it all. So many different fusions of international cuisines. And the selection of alcohol is excellent. It's a great brunch and the music gets the party started. A great place to start the Friday off and end up at indulge which is also in Atlantis.

We only ate here for breakfast and the choice is overwhelming, but fascinating to see what some people will eat for breakfast. A bit chaotic at times, but all in all, very good.

I first visited Saffron 5 or 6 years ago with my husband and two daughters who were then quite young and in many ways it worked for us as a family; the girls loved the chocolate fountain and they could enjoy themselves without me worrying that they might be disturbing other diners. However, on each occasion that we have returned... More
