We dined at Samba for a supposed birthday dinner party for our friend. The restaurant offered a good variety of food, being indian cuisine dominating the courses. Food is good however i feel it can improve, especially if one has to consider the value of the money. In one occasion, i feel that the lunch buffet fare better than the... More

Great Choice of Latin food options and good breakfast too, compare to Al Tanoor the choices are limited for the breakfast but the sea food buffet dinner is worth the money especially if you enjoy continental style shellfish options

Good restaurant which is offering breakfast and dinner buffet. In the evening different gastronomic themes are held depending on a day. Food is well -cooked and tasty.

The breakfast Shangri La style is good. Too much of similar products for example 6-7 types of mini pastries. They taste the same. A lot of Indian dishes with no Indian guests. The clientele was solidly European with a few locals. Arabic food and drinks were appropriate and well prepared. Service friendly and attentive.

We ate breakfast around 6:30 in the morning. Kids were very happy and excited to eat when they saw the different variety of cereals, juices, cakes, cheese, etc., and they have kids station. The breakfast was very good, enough to fill your day. We loved the egg cooking station, everything. The ambiance was quiet that time. The place was clean... More

We went 3 people for dinner one Friday. We arrived at 9 PM and there was very few options to eat. The few meat was already overdone, the pasta poor and overcooked, few cheeses and some slices of pizza left. At 10.45 they came to tell us if we would like something else because they had to remove all.....and we... More

Very delicious seafood and desserts in Saturday's night buffet. The buffet was very pricey though. Breakfast is very good. I only disliked their minestrone soup.

Whenever I dine here I always tell myself to take it easy. But it just never happen. The food selection is so extensive it is very difficult to take it easy. Middle Eastern, Indian, Italian... you name it. And the service is always impeccable.
