This is one of those buffet restaurants that offer food from around the world. It works very well as the packages includes Beers and other choices. The best station is the seafood area with grilled Lobster and Giant prawns.

I enjoyed last Monday's buffet, the plates were really good. Mushtak, the live kitchen cook made a great meal for me; sea food with a spicy Pakistani chilly.

If your looking for seafood buffet this is one of the right place, cooked right infront of you, affordable price, good for group of people, family and couples. Make your reservation specially on weekends. Average AED 200 per person.

Although the hotel is dated and more of a business conference centre than a holiday hotel, the International buffet in the Spice Island restaurant is very good value for money. A wide range of food is available as well as live cooking stations.
