I've had several good lunches at Choices in the Yas Rotana in the past, so one Thursday evening we went along to try out their seafood buffet.
The food was fine, but nothing special. Maybe my expectations were too high based on the really excellent Thursday night seafood buffet available at sister hotel the Beach Rotana, but the price is similar so this seems a reasonable comparison to make.
All the food I had was perfectly OK, but nothing really wowed me. The dish I had from the cooking station where the chef will whip up your choice of fish, veg and sauce in a stir fry was probably the best thing I had. However while the food was nothing special, service was really excellent, and the friendly waiting staff kept our drinks topped up throughout the evening.
The venue itself is pleasant enough, but it's a brightly lit, reasonably crowded place - this is a place to go for a family dinner or a pre-drinks meal with friends rather than a more intimate setting.
All in all, I'd go back, but I wouldn't be in any particular hurry to do so. If you're looking for a great seafood buffet and location isn't an issue then the Beach Rotana is hands down the better choice (though you will need to book in advance as it is popular).
