The newly refurbished Bab al Yam is a great place to eat. On this occasion we ate breakfast there and enjoyed great views of the new terrace and the refurbished pool. Food choices were extensive as you would expect from Burj al Arab. Chefs at cooking stations prepared dishes to order. Main dishes included fillet steak, fish and omelettes along with accompaniments such as mushrooms and tomatoes. All types of hot and cold beverages were available. The service was impeccable. Thank you everyone.

The Restaurant is inside Burj Al Arab otel in Dubai at Jumeirah. Planned the Dinner Buffet with my wife so that we can see the Hotel also. Either you dine in or have a room booking, otherwise one cannot enter the Hotel Entrance.

The restaurant serves multi-cusine food including Indian Food. The quality of food is nothing amazing. It is very basic. It is just the experience one has to pay for such heavy price.

Dear Divay911,

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us.

I am sorry to hear you found the quality of the food not 'amazing' - please feel free to share some more detailed comments in regards to what they were lacking for you.

Your comment about the price as been well noted and I like to highlight that the new concept of Bab al Yam which is running since December 2015 is in line with many other hotel buffet restaurants in town.

Thank you again for your valuable feedback.

Kind regards,
Monika

The location next to the pool is superb and the ambience and decor of the restaurant first class. Service is good except for trying to get the bill which took an age. The lunch buffet I feel is not as good as it should be in a seven star hotel. The brick oven food was good although kept under hot lamps. The hot food was overcooked. The savory waffles were great but took forever to come. The beef tapas was not really tapas, but steaks cooked on a grill.The cold mezze was very good as were the desserts but the layout in two locations was not logical. It was very difficult to take the cakes of the serving platters as they spun around and the cake was stuck to the base staff looked on but offered no assistance. The ice cream selection was good but no individual labels meant you had to guess what was what and i ended up with green apple instead of vanilla (I am colour blind). I think the buffet needs a full makeover.
