Fantastic Buffet

Beautiful setting, able to dine inside or out but beware the large Black birds hovering for food to steal. Quite entertaining to watch but would understand some would object to low flying birds! Staff very attentive and super efficient.

Found a hair in the food. Luckily, the chef came out and personally apologized--which saved the situation somewhat, but we did not return after that.

Lovely brunch. By far the best variety of seafood we have seen. Staff were amazing! Desert (as it has with most brunches was a let down). The cocktail menu wasn't up to much either. Would definitely recommend though and would always return due to the seafood choice

My family and I ate here daily for breakfast but also had the international dinner buffet a couple of times. The food selection was excellent but the main draw for us was that the chef would prepare a fresh pasta dish for us exactly how we wanted it (and being veggies, that was important!) I ate a lovely gnocchi dish... More

I have just spent a week at the Zabeel Saray and the breakfast here did not disappoint. A wonderful selection of food to suit all tastes, fantastic decor and some of the best hospitality and service I have experienced. A special mention to Amro who is outstanding, and to Alex and Bob who served us throughout our stay. I must... More

My husband made a reservation for his staff and spouses for their Christmas party. It was for the 13th of December. Anyways, the place is definitely fab for a date- it is formal and elegant. But not so for a big gathering. The place was way too quiet. No music - not even any background ones.... Definitely not a place... More

Had brunch in the Imperium last week and what an enjoyable experience it was. We sat out on the terrace to take in the cooler weather and great view, however if you sit inside you will not be disappointed either - the Imperium is an absolutely gorgeous restaurant, with food to match. I am not usually a fan of buffets... More
