Despite the wide varieties especially on the main course, the quality of food is very low. An unrated restaurant cooks far better than this. Otherwise, Ambience and service are fine.

We visited few 5 star hotels for Iftar during this Ramadan. But the Iftar buffet at Cuiscene, Fairmont Bab Al Bahr Abu Dhabi was absolutely amazing. Starting from the delicious Sushi, Arabic Appetizers, Shawrma and the main Arabic dishes and sweets were all fantastic. Too many choices and live stations and plenty of scampi and grilled Shrimps which made the... More

The food here has a wide selection to choose from, Sushi is absolutely great, great choice of Arabic and International salads, lots of grilled food if like Shrimps, Calamari and Arabic grills as well. Finally some real lovely desserts to top it all up. Love this restaurant, love the food here.

Great selection, Sushi, Indian, Chinese, Arabian, European, Dips/tapas, desserts - ALL very good. Honestly I just went for a buffet in Dubai at a fancy 5+ place at double the price of Cuiscene and this buffet at Cui scene is waaayyy better.... More

I had gone for Valentine Day dinner today (14/2/2015). While we liked the ambience, the food was not to the expectation. Indian food preparation was below standard except the Lucknow Biriyani which was good. Naan was quite hard and stiff. No other choice of rotis as well. There was no vegetarian soup. We were promised of a mushroom soup which... More

We chose CuiScene for an intimate family dinner and we were very pleased with our choice. The quality and variety of the food available is fantastic! Even though it is a seafood buffet, the variety of seafood dishes is vast and every one delicious. With the cooler weather now upon us, sitting outside gives you a great intimate atmosphere. The...

We had brunch with friends. Food was good on the whole, the prawn Ravioli was to die for! How ever the afternoon was spoilt by the lack of service. Ordering drinks took ages, first finding our waiter then how long it took to arrive! My bottled beer in particular took the longest always last and the waiter seemed to be... More
