The food is a fine dining choices, and the best thing about it is that it is displayed on small not tiny portions just enough to keep replenishing it continuelly and keep it fresh for better taste. overall experience is excellent. The Chef Mr. Sulaiman was very kind to serve the food in our table, all the staff are friendly and full of smile in their faces. Thank you very much.

It's a good place for a chill breakfast or lunch specially on weekend. The staff was super friendly especially to the very kind waiter Edwin, who serves us and attended in all our needs, and the environment is very relaxing. Mocktails served to us was perfectly match with the summer weather of Dubai.
Thank you for the wonderful and luxurious dine in experience with a show a round tour with the tallest all suites hotel in the world.

Having visited the famous hotel before .. I was highly anticipating the bab al yam evening buffet ... And I wasn't disappointed !! A beautifully balanced set of stations .. Inventive crisp starters .. Leaves,halibut rices .. Perfect to open the appetite. A wide array of hot mains from paella, pasta , meat dishes .. And although diverse cleverly co ordinated to be complimentary. However the jewel in the crown is the live tapas station under the command of Chef Suleiman. From a family of chefs, one of 9 brothers you can just imagine the genes and the competitive drive to excel. Grilling from prawn to chicken on the hot plates it was like watching an artist at work ... The end result was beyond perfect . It was his touch and the spirit of the whole team that made this evening something really special

I decided to take my family who came to visit us in dubai to celebrate my husband's birthday in bab al yam restaurant. it didn't miss at all, it was excellent for a buffet concept which was really really tasty and well organised, plus THE AMAAAAAAZING STAFF staring from the lourdes the receptionist who was so pleasant, always wearing her smile and willing to answer your requests happily, to the waiters who were constantly present offering their services and suggesting special drinks to make your experience so special, a special thanks to our waiter JOMIN, very profetionnal and sooooo kind. the attention to details is a big plus in the restaurant. the food is a fine dining choices, and the best thing about it is that it is displayed on small not tiny portions just enough to keep replenishing it continuelly and keep it fresh for better taste.
overall experience is excellent, not a single complaint..even my daughter of 4 years old have requested if we can go back there for her birthday :-). and without forgetting the special birthday cake offered as a complementarty treat to make my husband's evening memorable
