The best buffet in Dubai: the spots to never miss out on

Let us walk you through the best buffet spots in Dubai that should be on your list if you want to be treated to something special. Let’s get started.

1. Kitchen6

It is the highest-rated buffet spot in Dubai and consistently tops the list for many other food bloggers and personalities looking for a buffet that serves more than just food. Not only is it a chain of restaurants specializing in buffets, but it is also a restaurant that has won several prestigious awards. The best part is that they are not limited to a specific number of dishes or a singular cuisine; Kitchen6 serves everything from Indian to European dishes and Middle Eastern-style kebabs to Asian/ Chinese dishes. Couple this with excellent service and staff that is nothing short of sweet, and you can understand why Kitchen6 dominates this space. Located at the Sheikh Zayed Road in Business Bay, it is open till 11 at night, so this is the one spot you need to check out if you are a foodie.

2. Al Dawaar Revolving Restaurant

You might read the name and think, ‘Okay, the setting here will be incredible.’ And you would be right: Al Dawaar boasts great food and a setting unlike any other restaurant you might have visited. Enjoy international delicacies and up to six different cuisines as you sit atop the restaurant and peer into the incredible views of the city. With a full bar available and some great vegan options to cater to a wider audience, Al Dawaar is a must-visit in Dubai, and as far as buffet spots are concerned, not visiting and experiencing this place might be a gastronomical sin.

3. Saffron Restaurant

How do 200+ dishes sound? Crazy, right? Well, the Saffron Restaurant boasts around 220 dishes from different cuisines worldwide, so there’s never anything on ‘repeat’ when you try out the buffet at Saffron. And if that wasn’t enough, they doubled down and now have 20 cooking stations where you can request tweaks and additions to the dishes, thereby providing a very hefty level of personalization, even with 220 dishes. However, the star of the show at Saffron is the seafood. From a vast array of fishes to culinary delights, we’re certain you won’t be able to get anywhere else, Saffron is simply a dream come true for a foodie. Check them out at the West Tower in Atlantis Dubai; trust us, you won’t regret it.

4. Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope is another new establishment that seems to take everything by storm, and unlike other buffet spots in Dubai, which may be classified as ‘one-hit wonders’, Kaleidoscope is still going strong. That might be down to the fact that their range is truly global; from French cuisine that screams unique and bougie to Italian kinds of pasta and Indian curries that bring the flavor in with some heat, Kaleidoscope is truly a mashup of all the best dishes of the world. If heat and spices aren’t to your liking, try out their Chinese dim sum; it has been rated as one of the best in the city. All in all, the Kaleidoscope at the Atlantis is a big part of why Dubai is frivolously big on buffets, and food lovers consider it the holy land of good food and good portion sizes.

5. Barbeque Nation Dubai

All of the entries on this list have a pretty price tag on them, so if you want a buffet in Dubai that not only lives up to the expectations of a great meal in a great city but also provides a rich, flavourful taste on a budget, Barbeque Nation Dubai is like a dream come true. First of all, forget all that you know about your conventional, run-of-the-mill buffet in Dubai: Barbeque Nation introduced and perfected the concept of table-embedded grills, which means that you can cook and sear the meats to your taste and liking, and that’s not all. As you cook for yourself, you have an endless variety of amazing sauces and condiments inspired by Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine that further add to the zesty taste of the barbecue. Located in Al Barsha 2, Barbeque Nation has a vegetarian buffet, so nobody is left out of this incredible experience.

Buffet Spots

6. Al Hadheerah

The final entry on our list is a titan of providing good food and an incredible ambiance. Al Hadheerah is the signature restaurant of the famous Bab Al Shams Resort & Spa, and it combines the romantically traditional desert-night dining under the open skies, full of live music and live cook stations dishing out the most tantalizing Arabian food. The experience is unlike anything you might have had, and the combination of live music, sizzling and delicious food, and the open Arabian desert with a slight chill is something that should be experienced. With that said, Al Hadheerah might be a bit pricier, but for that price, it is all about savoring the food and the environment as something that’s truly special and one-of-its-kind.
