The restaurant is located inside Le Meridien Hotel on the airport road opposite the airport, at the back of Prime hospital and close proximity with the Albustan hotel. It was a special seafood night. Great food, unlimited seafood, lots of makis and sushis and green salads and fruits as well. We will definitely come back again for another seafood night.

We went there with some friends to enjoy "Noche Latina" buffet and we were really impressed with the variety and quality of the food. The ceviches are a must. The Sancocho and arepas were phenomenal. The Lomo saltado was delicious. I think I need at least three visits to try everything. The service was really good and all the staff... More

In my opinion this is probably the best buffet in Dubai. A huge selection of international foods, great service and very good value. On the occasion of our visit the outside buffet had been closed suddenly, due to adverse weather (highly unusual) so Yalumba was immediately swamped with additional diners. The way the staff coped with this was nothing short... More
