“Overpriced brunch, absolutely nothing special about this one.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for the standard brunch fair of mixed Asian cuisine and large joints of roast you can do much better than this place, Spice Island in Deira or Saffron at Atlantis do far superior food along the same cuisine with better service for a lower price.

The brunch here is also shorter than most, 12 till 3pm

The staff had to be asked to refill drinks every time.

There are so many better brunches that Spectrum on One in Dubai. For the same money you could eat at Traiteur, Zuma or Al Qasr.

“Truly International Fine Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I had 15 Business guests from various countries with different tastes and diets. This is the right place to go. Spectrum on One is located in Fairmont Hotel in Dubai serving a wide range of Eastern and Western cuisine including vegetarian dishes. There are several open kitchens marked with the name of the countries cooking their local dishes. The wine selection is also quite good. I've been at this eatery many times and it has never turned me down.
