Delight all your senses in Dubai’s only revolving restaurant. Located on the 25th floor of Hyatt Regency Dubai, Al Dawaar is the perfect way to experience Dubai in a little under two hours. Renowned for its superb international buffet, diners can indulge in a wide selection of tempting appetisers and main courses from Europe, the Middle East and Asia, all while enjoying the city’s skyline and previews of the emerging Palm Deira. Two live cooking stations for great sushi and meat, such as the signature US Prime Rib for dinner, as well as a circular dessert buffet centrepiece are just some of the highlights of this dining venue.
Price: Lunch AED 175 per person only for food
Dinner AED 235 per person only for food

The beverage menu provides alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks including a well selected wine list and international cocktails.

Manager Benny and his team will make you feel welcome and valued. The view over the skyline of Dubai is amazing. Unlike many buffets, the food quality and taste is outstanding. The French oysters, shrimps and sushi are always good, but so are the salads and oriental mezze. The huge range of hot dishes will please everyone, but leave room... More

Not as extensive a buffet as we expected based on some pictures we saw, but delicious food, including sushi and various International offerings. The revolving view was quite nice.

It is situated at the Hyatt Regency and the only revolving restaurant in Dubai and being at the top floor of the hotel offers exceptional views. We were there for a business lunch and the buffet spread was impressive and the food was delicious. Staff were friendly and attentive.

Exceptional food and fantastic setting. The restaurant revolution takes 90 minutes. It is the only revolving restaurant in Dubai and, being at the top of the hotel, offers exceptional views.

Came here for Friday brunch with friends. The staff were very good and attentive. The setting in the restaurant I felt was a bit dated and could do with some modernisation. I felt the food and drinks options for the brunch left a lot to be desired, I wasn't overly impressed with the limited choice and the poor quality of... More

Went on team lunch. The view is worth the visit at this revolving restaurant. The best thing about this place is not the food, but the view and the atmosphere. Good services and nice food. A turning restaurant gave us a 360 view. The food was good with excellent service. Mr. Benny is the man you should get in touch... More
