I love their food and sitting area. The buffet has variety of dishes. Desert was amazing with chocolate fountain. They have outside setting area and garden with playing area. There is also next door free of charge playing room for toddlers. Suitable for families

The place is very open and the quality of the food was fantastic. The staff were very helpful at catering and I loved the restaurant's food quality, style and presentation. Also, relaxing music. They had plenty of international foods and I loved it! A bit too pricey though.

The holiday inn Salmiya is just close to my place. I tried the breakfast buffet and dinner buffet several times, and all are very good for values. Salad bar is really huge. But what made me write the review is the Saturday Seafood Brunch which was really AMAZING, from the varieties they serve ( most of them are really seafood)... More

On Thursdays, they serve Egyptian buffet, food quality is not bad but doesn't step up to the expectations and the price. The best thing about the whole experience is the artist who played oriental music during the night.

I went as family together to celebrate my parents anniversary. It was an open lunch buffet. There was variety of different kinds of food. The restaurant staff was poliet with exception of 2 chefs (who lacked patience and doesn't know how to smile to a customer). Overall still 5 stars...

Had a nice time having dinner with a dear friend of mine at Al Diwan Restaurant. I like the selection of all their food and of course the place itself. Good for family and friends to dine with.
