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.

Dining at the Saffron it was very evident as to why Atlantis is considered the best 5 star property in Dubai. The selection food was varied and plentiful. Loved the salads and the dessert selection .specially chocolate fountain. The Chinese section too was excellent and tasty (Wow Dim sum). Especially The staff (nadeen the smiley) and 'Anthony' manager on duty... More

At our recent stay at Atlantis the Palm, we particularly enjoyed the variety and the exotic taste of the food at the Saffron restaurant. In our opinion, the Saffron restaurant is the best in Atlantis because the staff and chefs were brilliant and they stopped at nothing to ensure that they catered for our needs. Throughout our stay the staff... More

Staff are very welcoming and tentative despite the crowds or shall I say 'hoards' of people in this place. We dined on the seafood night and the selection was excellent. Plentiful oysters, lobster and crab on demand, which can be grilled by the chef if you desire. The quality of the sushi was disappointing and the selection of Indian food... More

Went to this brunch on my first visit to Dubai. While there was an impressive array of food and beverages the brunch was overcrowded and could have done with more staff. The moment four o'clock came we were also hunted out the door, that wasn't a welcome experience. Good brunch if you're looking for a party atmosphere!

Saffron is the best place to go for breakfast. It has incredible selection of foods and I had a hard time selecting which one to eat. There was eight stations which offer breakfast from Chinese, Indian, Mediterranean, Arabic, Asian, American, etc. It has everything!!!! Definitely one of my best breakfast!

Good breakfast fare - long queues and some challenged front deskers - but overall good. the efficiency of table allocation was appreciated and the walkie-talkies were welcomed.

In the evening this restaurant is buffet style with at least six different food station themes. The place is ginormous. Food choice was excellent and made my wifes day by having a 'roast' section.

An absolutely enormous spread of food at the buffet. There's probably something for everyone. It's impossible to try everything here because there's really just a lot of food! Mostly good food, mostly Asian, mostly freshly prepared. The atmosphere is family friendly, not the place for a romantic date but great for bigger groups. It can get noisy inside and is... More
