My review for Seasonal Tastes – I cannot believe how long it took me to photograph the buffet selection at this restaurant for the City Brunch because it was literally the biggest brunch I have ever been to.
There were so many different cuisines served in the buffet and there was also chef who was a DJ preparing eggs benedict while mixing some beats!
My favourites from the buffet were salmon and tuna sashimi, cheese sushi roll, laksa noodles, shrimp dumplings, smoked salmon, king crab, oysters, and the amazing dessert items.
The sashimi at the Japanese section of the buffet was stunning for the presentation. The large tuna immediately caught my eye and it was the first station that I went to. The sashimi was definitely so fresh.
The laksa noodles was my favourite from the Chinese station but laksa is not a Chinese dish so that was a little out of place since it is a Malaysian dish. The laksa soup was delicious and it was close to the ones that I had in Malaysia.
I was drawn to the fresh seafood station in the buffet because there were so many different types of seafood present. I was impressed with the different flavours on the smoked salmon and they were all so perfect. The king crab was just falling off the shell, so it was steamed to the right temperature. The oysters were shucked on the spot which made them super fresh.
Finally, I was so happy to see how many dessert items there were. There were waffles, pancakes, different cakes, arabic sweets, a white and dark chocolate fountain, and macarons. I had no complaints at all with any of the dessert dishes because each one was just right.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 4.5/5.
I ordered the champagne alcoholic brunch package for 495DHS.
The pricing of the buffet here was excellent for the amount of items present in the buffet.
The service that I received here was amazing for the first bit of the brunch experience, but as the day went on and the tables were all getting filled up, the service started slowing down. We had to find the server ourselves to clear our finished plates and to get new cutlery.
The ambience of this restaurant was bright and the huge! The buffet was spread across the whole span of the restaurant because there were so many different food items and cuisines served here. There were tables along the window overlooking the Dubai Creek and the view of the JW Marriott hotel. It was nice to see a kids section in the restaurant as well so you can dine with your kids without worrying that they will get bored.
