“adding a stone of weight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

When people are taking photos of the food choices, it is an excellent restaurant. I'm eating here tice a day while working, and trying hard to not add a stone of weight. The food is that good. Samir is a wonderful manager who keeps a tight ship. The staff is friendly and helpful, especially Daniel and Lay in the mornings. Tonight is Mexican, tomorrow night is Asia, and on it goes. Even if you are not staying in the Rotana (a mistake in itself), come here for the restaurant.

“Different theme nights throughout the week - All excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

This restaurant is simply superb in the variety and quality of food served. The wait staff is outstanding. Each night of the week is a different regional cuisine theme - Sunday, International; Monday, British; Tuesday, TexMex; Wednesday Asian; Thursday, Seafood; and (my personal favorite) Saturday Arabic. Every buffet is accompanied by superior side dishes, salads and deserts. The breakfast buffet is also first rate.
