A large variety of cuisine right from Asia to America. Lots of variety in individual cuisine. Did not find any chinese food though. But the continental, Indian, Sea food were good. Desserts so so.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding you experience at Saffron Restaurant on TripAdvisor.

We are glad that you enjoyed the wide selection of food that we offer.

We are surprised to read that you did not find any Chinese dishes during your dining experience and was not satisfied with the desserts that we offer in Saffron restaurant. Saffron presents an array of international cuisine and in fact emphasizes Asian flavors which includes Chinese specialties such as traditional Peking Duck, Chinese Szechuan spice and steamed Chinese dim sums. In addition with this, our dessert station, offers a wide variety of Ice Cream Teppanyaki, La Crêperie, including a selection of whole cakes, mini cakes, tarts and pie. The highlight of our dessert station is our huge chocolate fountain which is one of the biggest in the Middle East.

Once again, thank you for taking time to share your experience and we look forward to welcome you back at Atlantis, The Palm.

Sincerely yours,

Dirk von Kries
Executive Assistant Manager, Food & Beverage

“Brunch at Saffron - brings out the inner Chav”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Had brunch at Saffron with the wife and a friend when we visited Dubai. I should have got suspicious on what was about to come when there was a large queue to get in at 12:20 (it opens at 12:30). Most of the young ladies queuing up looked like they were at Ascot's ladies day, all done up the nines and rather orange.

As we went in we where handed a glass of champagne that was continually topped up for as long as you wanted to drink it.

There was a massive selection of food including sushi, sashimi, Chinese, beef & yorkshires, burgers, kebabs, omelettes, soups etc etc not forgetting a load of deserts *and Haribo!) as well.

Then the drinks stations, cocktails, Pimms, beer, shots (vodka, absinthe and others), vodka etc. The booze wasn't the best quality but what it lost here, it made up for in quantity.

By the end of the 'brunch' (some tables didn't even eat, they just drank!) it was getting a bit messy as people were absolutely leathered and dancing to the DJ (if you can't beat them, join them I say!)

We met some randoms and then went round to Ndulge, the 'day' club on the other side of the Atlantis which is worth a visit, and no you don't need a password to get in.

Don't go here if you want a quiet romantic meal for 2, do go here if you want some banter and / or to go on the pull and get drunk

“Excellent Brunch”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Saffron's Friday brunch is one of the pricier, but also one of the better brunches Dubai has to offer. Take advantage of the fantastic sushi, the asian food and the brilliant array of fun drinks on offer, and make sure you pop outside to the terrace to do a spot of painting on the canvas they provide you with! Great fun for a big group of friends.

“Excellent service”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a place with service from the F & B Service team (although one of the production team members showed a "tired of customers" attitude. His attitude couldn't overtake the rest. I made a reservation for our anniversary it was made perfect by the restaurant team including the hostesses, the Manager, Bandara & the rest of the team. Many parents will agree that dining with 2 kids below 4 is not something great to look forward to but the restaurant team kept them occupied & facilitated our dinner well. The food was good & liked the Mocktails in particular.

Nothing could beat the service of the F & B Service team!
