You need to pay this revolving restaurant a visit. Not only is it a unique experience which offers fantastic views over the whole of dubai. Also, the buffet was simply extraordinary supplemented by very well trained and attentive service staff. All in all, we would do this over and over again if we had the choice.

Definitely worth to go and have dinner once, if you are staying in the hotel. Buffet is great! Although service was good, it was sometimes too much as waiters were around too often... If you take big bus tour then you'll get voucher for 20% off, which is defo worth it! :)

Great and varied food (okay, this is not Michelin starred but, as buffets go, it was really great) and a ever changing view of the Dubai skyline makes this a must-visit. It also allows you to see the old city and the creek, so a very interesting part of the city.

Myself and my partner came here on Christmas Day in the evening and it was so lovely! I love the fact the restaurant revolves around slowly so you can see all the skyscrapers in Dubai, fantastic concept! The food was amazing! We traditionally had the roast dinner but also tried loads of other interesting things. The desserts were fantastic! It... More

After battling through peak our traffic to get to this location felt the interior could do with a little bit of a make over. Needs to open a window to the the stale smell of food out and some fresh air in. However, really enjoyed the food, a great selection of food from around the globe. The revolving was not... More

Visiting the revolving restaurant is a must, I hated the first 5 minutes as although it moves slowly you are aware your moving and found it somewhat disorientating however soon adjusted and it ended up a lovely evening with great views across Dubai.
