Eat here for breakfast everyday, 6 dinners and a few lunches. Always a good selection, very good standard of food. The selection of courses was also great, salads, cheese, soup and a range of hot main courses, followed by hot and cold puddings, we never went hungry. The staff were great two that really stand, out are Jovet and Asad... More

We visited Choices as we had an Entertainer voucher for the buffet. We went not expecting much but came out having spent one of the best nights of our holiday. There was an extensive choice of cuisine on offer which was all high quality and cooked to perfection. We will certainly return and would recommend if you are in Yas... More

Would recommend as the buffet had a good variety with themes every night. The beef wellington on one of our nights was one of the best ones I have ever had

This my first experience in choices and first impression is last impression and noticed: 1- we was setting outdoor and service was aggressive and unskilled at all. 2- This buffet contain no varieties and it did not worsed to pay single dirham. 3- Food is tastless and cold. I do not advice anyone to go this buffet.

We ate here for breakfast each morning during our stay in the hotel. The food was delicious and there were plenty of options to choose from in this informal, buffet style restaurant. They offer lunch and dinner too but we didn't partake in those. All in all, the food is good quality, the staff are excellent and the ambience is... More

The family and I have eaten here for dinner and lunch on separate occasions. Both times from the stand alone menus. On both occasion the food has been well presented and of good quality. The service has also been very good.

We were lucky enough to be placed in the Rotana many years ago when we first arrived in the country. We couldn't afford to eat there but our wonderful boss paid for us all to try the Choices experience. Since then it has been a favourite for birthdays, guests or other special occasions. This is not cheap. Get an Entertainer... More
