“Expensive buffet, awful food”
Reviewed August 22, 2011

We went for a dinner buffet hoping to see a wide variety of food and middle eastern specialties only to be extremely disappointed with the variety and the quality of the food presented. Considering that you get charged AED 180 per person (close to USD 50 per person) excluding drinks, I would say this is raw deal. Definitely not going again.

“One of the best brunches in Abu Dhabi”
Reviewed December 11, 2010

I'm not into Friday brunches but this place offers a great option.

They offer non-alcoholic package of AED140 and alcoholic package of AED170 per person. The non-alcoholic option is great as I don't drink.

The only thing missing on their buffet is fresh oyster!

“Lovely Iftar buffet in Ramadan”
Reviewed September 15, 2010

My husband and I went there to try the Iftar buffet (served instead of the dinner buffet in Ramadan) . It was the best iftar we went to . The salad bar was rich with great choices and the main courses were lovely . There was an oriental drinks corner as accustomed in Ramadan and a shwerma, pasta and grilling stations. The dessert was so great we were tempted to over eat . I really recommend this place .

“We ate but did not keep the food”
Reviewed December 8, 2009

It is a new establishment in the new Yas district, we thought we should give it a try. the verity was limited, when we tasted the main items we found the pasta - under cocked, the lamb chops tast plain, but the desert was OK. To start with that was not worth the 100$ we spent, and we did decide not to go there again, the ambience was lovely due to the fact the we were dining outside by the pool in November.
Finally, my wife did not keep the food she "returned" it all in the hotels' bath sink!!!
