If you want a show with your meal, book a table at the Tapanyaki tables at Sakura, based within the Crowne Plaza Hotel. It's more fun if you go as part of a group of 8, as you can all sit round the outside of the special tables. We had their buffet, which allowed you to have as much salad,... More

I am a great fan of this restaurant to the point it is one of my top 10 in the world. The quality of food and service is faultless. Go for the buffet and the set package and enjoy outstanding value for money!

Walking inside one of the oldest hotels in Dubai, I couldn’t help but feel a little too excited. Located on the busy SZR and among the fine hotels present along the same line, Crowne Plaza Hotel is easy to spot. While I would have loved to spend time looking at the pretty decorations lined up, we were there to try... More
