This used to be a very good buffet in Dubai. I think that the FB team has some issues that they need to solve. The buffet is far from cheap and doesnt even include drinks. The selection of food is medium in size. Taste wise its not bad. We were there when the occupancy was not more then 25%. Even... More

We had our breakfast at the Kaleidoscope daily, it gets VERY busy but there are so many tables that it never seemed to be too long of a wait. Breakfast variety extensive. Service great especially considering how busy it gets. We also had a dinner here, they have theme's, we went on the Indian experience it was fantastic.

I visited here on 30th December with two friends. We couldn't get seated in the area we wanted but we hadn't specifically booked it so that was fine. The evening started off fine and the selection of food was excellent and of a good quality. I have no complaints about the food at all. My issues were with other diners.... More

The buffet was ok, but nothing special. Tea and coffee utterly overpriced. Lots of groups eating there. Atmosphere like a school cafeteria. Staff extremely unfriendly.

During our visit to Dubai we went to have buffet lunch at this restaurant with family. A fabulous hotel overall and u need to make prior booking for lunch here. The variety was amazing with various type of Indian, Italian and continental dishes and deserts. The only lacking part was the spicy taste which Indians like. I guess all preparations... More

I think this is one of the best buffets in Dubai! It has a wide selection in each of the sections and they are always adding something new! The staff is wonderful and sincerely tries to make their guests happy! If you don't see an item in the buffet, the chefs will go out of their way to prepare it... More
