Had an expatriate 25 years reunion in Dubai. Organisers fixed up a Champagne Brunch, with Bollinger flowing for over 5 hours. Food selection and choice around the buffet platters was excellent, as was the choice of the A La Carte Menu if you preferred a different option.

We had a buffet breakfast each morning we stayed (4 nights) at Yalumba. The staff were wonderful, after the first day they remembered our drinks order each morning. The were kind to our 20 month old too, even when he was being a little noisy. Great pastries and nice fresh juices.

A truly excellent restaurant which is a "must" at lunchtime. The buffet is one of the best I have ever had and the experience is greatly enhanced by Mr. Nandana de Alwis and his team who are professional, friendly and maintain a high standard of service. First class experience, eating there every lunchtime for nearly a week !

Went to the Thursday evening brunch with a group of friends. It was an excellent night. Paid 249 dirhams for all you can eat buffet and alcoholic drinks. Hemal our waiter was brilliant and looked after us all night. Will certainly be returning next year.
