We visited Dubai at the end of our honeymoon. We booked the culinary flight meal with wine pairing on the Friday evening. From the word go we were treated like royalty, the best customer service we have ever experienced. As we were on our honeymoon they decorated each table with red roses which was a personal touch. The food was... More

Wow ! As others have said, a priced experience but in life you get what you pay for. This hotel is stunning, and as a surprise for my Mrs she looked very impressed. Be warned you will leave stuffed, as your constantly topped up with freshly made warm bread and butter, you get 3 starters in each restaurant before going... More

The Burj does a decent job in making the culinary flight a good experience. The venues are great (except for one, which seems more like an Asian cafeteria) and the food is good. The wines paring is okay and overwhelmingly overpriced. I read reviews that you should take care not to eat too much bread, I didn't listen and paid... More

We've always wanted to see the Burj so this was a great opportunity to celebrate our anniversary at the same time. Service was impeccable from start-to-finish and it's definitely a unique, amazing experience. Food was generally good as long as you know that you're paying more for the experience. Wine pairing is almost double the price with a thoughtful selection.... More

The culinary flight is a great opportunity to check out the majority of the restaurants at the Burj al Arab. The staff are extremely friendly and the evening was extremely well organised and we were made to feel really special. I think it is however overpriced and the food was nice but not wonderful. My suggestion if you want to... More

I am a little bit unsure of my dining experience at the Burj Al Arab Culinary Flight - overall the food was good but was it worth AED1075 / AUD 450 per person ?? Probably not. The meal we had in each restaurant was enjoyable, and our host did make us feel very special and made an effort to chat... More

The hotel and location is stunning, the service in the main is very good, the food is a bit above average, but not worth the cost. However if you are in Dubai, give it a try.
