We were staying at the JA Oasis Beach Tower, and feeling lazy one night so called in at the Thyme restaurant. We were familiar with the place as this is where the hotel breakfast is served. We opted for the buffet, as the roast turkey and trimmings looked good. Unfortunately, it wasnt as good as it looked, and tasted like... More

We enjoyed a gala dinner here on NYE and I must say it was second to none. So much food to chose from and plenty to drink too. We also had breakfasts here too and every morning most of the items were cold!

This is just a cozy and nice restaurant. Fantastic service and good food. This is a hotel restaurant which means alcohol serving. Big plus! Special thanks to our waiter Glenn!

The Seafood buffet on Thursday was just explicit. The variety on the menu from sushi to dim sums, salads to fresh oysters, live cooking stations for the prawn and the chilli crab to dessert was utterly scrumptious. The ambience was fantastic with talented 2 piece latino band livening the evening. And to complete it all, the service from the staff... More

Went on a Thursday night for the seafood buffet. We chose the all inclusive food and drink package. Absolutely excellent fresh food and amazing choice. The staff were superb, as soon as my glass was half full the staff were topping it up. Special thanks to Mohammed & Srikanth who couldn't have been more helpful. Great place to spend the... More

Been coming here since arriving in Dubai and never disappoints. The new Colombian band are great, food and drink selection good, but what makes it most is the friendliness and service of the staff.

More of a Buffet style restaurant, good selection of food. Good value if on a budget... no comparison to the quality of Amaseena restaurant in the Ritz Carlton however the prices do reflect this. Breakfast is varied with good selection of pastries, fruit, hot foods, yogurts etc..

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
