“Best seafood buffet ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Delicious food, great variety, every detail is taken care of. You should try fish shawarma. Only on Tuesdays. You shouldn't miss it especially in winter when you can sit outdoor to enjoy the weather. I would try it again and again.

“YALUMBA BREAKFAST: THE BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

We have been travelling to Dubai and LM Dubai since 2004, and this breakfast is a reason itself to visit Dubai.
Not only the amazing choice of food, homemade bread, pastries, juice, yougert a lot of hot and cold dishes etc etc, but there is also a very serviceminded, honest and polite staff/Yalumba family with de Alwis and Bandara in front. They all manage to make a early breakfast to an daily happening. Take care of your back Indigia !!!, and we see you all in november.

“Great for drinks, food and ambience not my style”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Its true to say the drinks didn't stop flowing at the brunch, high quality champagne at that, this was certainly a plus! However the area is very cramped and feels very old and I certainly felt over dressed in my usual brunch attire. The food was average to say the least. I ordered bruschetta for starter (they have a mix of al a carte and buffet also a good point). I got a soggy bread roll with wet mozzarella, not a tomato in sight. I then had pasta which was edible but nothing to get excited about.

To sum up, if you are after drinks, then this is your place, if you don't mind out dated and a cramped atmosphere.

“enjoyable”

Have been to brunch there a few times, the Friday brunch is a lot livelier than Thursday night! Staff are friendly-Vishnu was very accommodating to our large group.
