My family loves jello kebab, and me the salads and the meats. The buffet is more than enough and we visit often. When my husband wants to make us happy he takes us there. It is not a fancy place, actually very simple, and this makes it feel very comfortable. The price has increased this is the only negative thing... More

The lamb was excellent. Unfortunately my plate was removed before I was done. The good thing though, was that I didn't got the chance to eat my fries.

We have just eaten in the Sadaf Persian restaurant on the Marina Walk and could not fault it one bit. The only downside currently is that the roadworks really prohibit easy access to the Marina Walk for child buggies. Once on the Walk the plethora of available enticing restaurants could mean you wouldn't get as far as Sadaf. But believe... More

We recently ate at the SZR branch and once again found the food to be very good. Plenty of choice and good quality. What it lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in excellent and good value food. The staff although fairly friendly are not intrusive, merely leaving everyone to enjoy their meals without interruption. I would recommend this restaurant... More

Stumbled on this restaurant while walking along the Dubai Marina Walk, as have others. Initially unsure what to go for but then the waiting staff, who I must give credit to for the extreme politeness, advised us to go for the mixed seafood platter. Number 34 on the menu if my memory serves me right. This was a mix of... More

I had to eat at one Persian Restaurant while vacationing in Dubai so I decided to eat at Sadaf's Sheik Zayed Road location as it was near my hotel. This meal was the best of my entire 3 country trip. I didn't know what to order so I ended getting the Iranian traditional CHELO KABAB MAKHLOOT. The skewers and rice... More

On our last evening in Dubai (night 3) we went to the Marina in the late afternoon, took a Dhow cruise for an hour and then decided to find somewhere to eat. We walked around the marina for quite a while looking at menus and guests until I came across the Sadaf. Most of the guests were local Emiritians so... More
