I tried this restaurant couple times and still keep high quality of food and freshness plus the Multi selection Asian & western types. The service is very high and the staff are very helpful. It has Japanese, Indian, Italian America food. You never go wrong with this restaurant.

Delicious food, great variety, every detail is taken care of. You should try fish shawarma. Only on Tuesdays. You shouldn't miss it especially in winter when you can sit outdoor to enjoy the weather. I would try it again and again.

We have been travelling to Dubai and LM Dubai since 2004, and this breakfast is a reason itself to visit Dubai. Not only the amazing choice of food, homemade bread, pastries, juice, yougert a lot of hot and cold dishes etc etc, but there is also a very serviceminded, honest and polite staff/Yalumba family with de Alwis and Bandara in...

Its true to say the drinks didn't stop flowing at the brunch, high quality champagne at that, this was certainly a plus! However the area is very cramped and feels very old and I certainly felt over dressed in my usual brunch attire. The food was average to say the least. I ordered bruschetta for starter (they have a mix... More

Have been to brunch there a few times, the Friday brunch is a lot livelier than Thursday night! Staff are friendly-Vishnu was very accommodating to our large group.

A couple of girlfriends and I took off to Dubai on a whim for a girls weekend. We asked the front desk really late if they offered a brunch. They suggested Yalumba, we called for reservations, luckily got in because of a cancelation, and had no idea what we were in for. At first I wasn't too impressed. We were... More

A business lunch with obstacles. As we wanted to discuss rather then going to the buffet, we ordered (or tried to order) on the menue. Close to impossible. There were few people in the restaurant so we asked to put two tables together to have space for our documents - they had to find the supervisor of the supervisor to... More

A great place for dinner and Yalumba has a different theme every night and they are all good.In addition to the specialty of that evening, Yalumba offers an additional wide selection from sushi,seafood to other tasty dishes. You cannot complain that there was nothing that you liked!
