We went along to the Friday champagne brunch a couple of weeks back. The first thing that hits you is the surroundings, the restaurant is very grand with high ceilings and glittering chandeliers. We actually ate out on the terrace which was shaded and had a good atmosphere. We went for the full champagne package and the flow was plentiful... More

Went to Imperium for the first time recently for dinner as a couple. The setting and the hotel are simply majestic and the restaurant in particular is lavishly decorated to teleport you back to the 1900's aristocratic era. Simply amazing. The service staff were very friendly and attentive but it has to be said that it was late in the... More

Beautiful ambiance and decor both indoors and out. The food is very high quality in terms of the selection and catering for foreign guests (e.g. pork dishes). The pasta bar was very nice and there was an ample selection of seafood on offer as well. In comparison to other top-notch buffet dinner option in Dubai hotels this definitely ranks up... More

Saturday Jazz Brunch is well worth trying - restaurant is huge!! The buffet is excellent quality with unlike some brunches very few "overcooking in a heater" dishes and much more fresh!!! The beef and lamb were beautiful. Leave some room for the cheese!! The jazz group keeps the atmosphere alive (but I wouldn't get a table next to them if... More

My husband and I aren't buffet people but we have enjoyed our meals in Imperium. Breakfast is very good with a very wide choice of hot and cold dishes. The fresh fruit is a delight. We also enjoyed wonderful cold ham off the bone and bacon!!! This was a surprise and unexpected. We had three evening meals here too. Again... More

Myself and 10 friends had a Friday brunch at the Sabeel Zaray on Friday. The food was awsome as usual. The best part though were the staff. Every one of the staff were polite and extremely helpful. The drinks flowed freely and our requests were met. It has a great atmosphere whether it is the two of you or in... More

Wonderful decor Pleasant staff BUT - hot food quality poor. Nasty coffee (assume made hours earlier). Awful load music playing thru distorted speakers. Omelette station good but 15 minute wait. If not included in my / our rate I wouldn't bother.

I had visited this hotel prior to its opening to act as an extra for a Tom Cruise film which was hot, sweaty and ended up with only a fleeting glance of the back of my head, however throughout all of that I was intrigued to see what it would turn out like once opened. I have been to many... More

Most of the reviews of this restaurant focus on the Friday Brunch. We did not try this, but had 3 dinners here, using our half-board vouchers each time. There is an option to have what they call a "semi-buffet" dinner: you select your starters and desserts from the extensive buffet, but order a main course from the a la carte... More
