“Dinner Buffet with Good Food”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

I always am a bit skeptical when I opt to have a buffet meal. Thoughts of food that is not fresh and limited offerings are what I usually expect to find, but Fairways was a refreshing change! The display itself looks appetizing, with the types of food sectioned off well. The fresh seafood offerings and the salad section are what caught my eye. The ambience and friendly service, along with the tasty food, all contributed to a great night out with friends. We will all definitely return soon.

“Friday Brunch”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Awesome!! Food was outstanding. Food was plentiful, hot and tasted fabulous. There is a live cooking station for seafood and a section where the steak is. There were many desserts to choose from too, all small portions so you can sample them all!!
The entertainment was great, there was a guy with a falcon you could get your picture taken with, kids face painting and balloon modelling, a magician and great DJ. Service for drinks was prompt.
It was noisy in the restaurant but you can also sit outside. We throughly enjoyed the brunch and will be going again and again.

“One of the best buffets in town!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I should have reviewed Fairways earlier since I last visited it on August 2012 for an Iftar buffet, but the experience is still etched in my memory.
The buffet area is expansive, allowing diners to hover around the different stations without making it crowded. The variety on offer was overwhelming, and I wished that I could try a bit of everything. I remember the dim sums were great, as were the fresh grilled kebabs at the Arabic station. The desserts were also a high-point as there was an ice cream station and a chocolate fondue along with a horde of other options.
There's a similar buffet at Sofra Bld at the Shangri-La which I went to recently, and the latter is probably more grand, but I think overall, I enjoyed my Fairways experience more.

“Excellent Buffet Restaurant”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We have just returned from a long weekend break at The Westin and enjoyed a few breakfast buffets plus one evening buffet in Fairways. The breakfast buffet offers a good selection of food, especially healthy options. I can also highly recommend the egg station for wonderful omelettes. Breakfast was very busy at the weekend but the staff offered excellent service and there were no queues for tables. One evening we had the international buffet which offered an excellent selection of food which was well presented and delicious. Once again the staff provided excellent service with a smile.

“excellent food selection”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

What a really nice restaurant this is. It is big and open with nice soft tones, lots of large windows overlooking the golf course - there's also an outdoor covered seating area right on the driving range. The food selection at this restaurant is great and varied. There's an asian food station with sushi, noodles, etc. There's a middle eastern food station too with mezzeh, tagine dishes and kebbabs. There's a large international food station and a separate healthy food station with lots of different salads. And then, the dessert food station has a huge ice cream display - great! The staff was very good, service was excellent.
