You can't go wrong here. All you can eat and drink. Was here for well over 4 hrs with good service and food. I have been here a few times before and the food has been better, but it was still good today. There are so many international dishes to choose from you just can't go wrong. The deserts are immense and well worth a mention. Prices when I visited. 199 aed for soft drinks, 259 aed for house drinks and 329 aed for premium drinks.

I recently stayed in the Crowne Plaza Diera in Dubai as a stopover and it was perfect.

On my final night I decided to treat myself to the buffet at the local restaurant Spice Island.

There really wasn't much choice as there is nothing nearby but it really is a little gem.

The service was first class, silver service standard and the ambience was well suited for a buffet, spacious not too brightly lit and we'll decorated.

Most importantly tho the food was incredible! From the sashimi to the curries and dessert bar this buffet had it all. Special mention goes to the stir fry which was done fresh and made to order. It was even brought to my table. I personally chose no alcohol on the buffet as they have soft drink, coffee, juice and alcohol as an a la carte option...

If stopping over in Dubai I would recommend this hotel! If your staying nearby this restaurant will not disappoint!

Have been visiting this restaurant since I came to Dubai 7 years ago. Always been one of my favorite due to it's selection of food and quality. Perfect spot for celebrations with multy-national guests. Everyone can find something for his/her liking on the menu. Pleanty of beverage chioses as well. Favorite is the live cooking station with the chef, working there for the longest time. Great service. Thank you!
