Consistent

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... read more

So, when I asked for a white coffee at this coffee shop and was told that they don't do wjhite coffee, the alarm bells should have been ringing. The choice was Turkish coffee, nescafe or cappuccino. If you can make cappuccino surely you can make white coffee. My wife wanted English breakfast tea. Not possible. Only Turkish tea. The cappuccino... More

In the photo, you'll see how 16 people were sharing 3 platters that are made presumably for 12 people.

This is the worst restaurant I have ever been to. Horrible staff and order. we invited 35 guests to the Marina brunch and the food was not enough for 20 people and not ready on time as the people were fasting. They keep lying about what happen. We contact the manager of Sadaf and he was not ready to do... More

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

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
