I must come back here! Excellent choice for adults and also for kids. Ask for Gilbert and Ian, best service ever and take their suggestions.

I have had dinner here many times over the years and the food is always outstanding with excellent service. The menu has changed several times, but the food is still imaginative with inventive creations. We were there during the lobster special and I had the lobster risotto which was outstanding. This is one of the my favorite restaurants in Abu... More

Took my mom - spectacular meal, service very attentive and catered to any requests. My mom had a cane and they ensure our seating was comfortable and acessible.

Fantastic restaurant - amazing food and lovely service. I ordered the Lobster and was offered the thermidor despite the fact it wasn't listed on the menu, and it was superb. The chocolate fondant was also excellent. They offer the Emirates Palace standard menu for kids, which my son loved. Particularly the mini burgers!

Sayad is a seafood restaurant in the Emirates Palace hotel and is absolutely fabulous....it's definitely a couples restaurant and totally unsuitable for children. It's fine dining with a superb menu and lovely wine, be warned tho you can't buy wine by the glass here it's bottles only and our fairly standard bottle worked out to around £90 so it's not... More

We ordered the fresh platter for 2. What the waiter failed to tell us was the scollops and prawns were from 3 days ago. They were frozen and thawed and were watery and no taste! Fish came with no lemon. Service was appalling and we were not offered a wine menu. Glasses were often empty and we had to ask... More
