I visited Al Dawaar for my birthday with 3 friends. The revolving restaurant has great novelty value with fantastic views across Dubai. The buffet had an excellent selection, especially considering it was a Sunday night and the quality of food was fantastic. A selection of sushi, arabic, chinese, indian and even a roast, followed by a wide range of desserts... More

After spending many days in the hot, Arabian sun, we wanted to just hangout at the hotel. We planned to go to Al Dawaar at lunchtime, around 1pm. However, after a buffet breakfast at The Kitchen (another one of the fine restaurants at Hyatt Regency Dubai), we decided to push back the time to 2pm. But, 2pm rolled around and... More

As Dubai's only revolving rstaurant, Al Dawaar has novelty value as well as stunning views. However the food, service and ambiance are also first class. As you arrive you will be greeted warmly by the manager Benny and his excellent team, who are extremely friendly and attentive. In fact the service at Al Dawaar is outstanding. The buffet is not...

I recently went there but it seems to be expensive if you compare the variety of dishes serve there in buffet, quality was good but not many choices of food. good for one time.

We visited during Ramadan and had a sumptuous buffet after sunset. It felt like a celebration and we had to book in advance as it was popular. We liked the many traditional dishes and tried many things we had not had before. It was all delicious.
