Been many times to this restaurant. Even had Christmas dinner once ( never again ) mostly a good place to eat , but service and quality can vary. On the whole as the title says not bad, but much the same as many similar places.

I got all appreciation for choosing Yalumba - Iftar Buffet for our office party. It was a short notice arrangement, but the hotel staff responded back quickly and arranged it for us. Good Applause for the Hotel & the Restaurant staff. They had arranged a separate area for corporate bookings; the tables were well placed and neatly arranged. Nice ambience... More

I stayed in the hotel where this restaurant was based and had breakfast there most mornings. Amazing choice of food and wonderful staff. They will pretty much get you whatever you want (within reason!) and are really sweet and friendly. Didn't manage to do Friday brunch here but I heard it is really good.

Having visited Dubai several times, I had never done the infamous Dubai Brunch. This one was recommended to me and I have to say, I couldn't fault it. As fast as your champagne glass is half empty it is topped up by attentive staff. The quality and range of the food is excellent. It ranged from lobster to roast beef... More
