The buffet is filled with variety, fresh food and good service. Family friendly. I recommend Saffron for your breakfasts when staying at Atlantis. However, they need to get their ducks in a row with the queuing aspect. They have a good number of staff and enough tables but tables are just not cleaned out quick enough, leading to unnecessary queues.... More

I had breakfast at Saffron on my first day at Atlantis. Well, they have a wide range of food selection, but for me it was suffocating. The place is huge and the stations are far from each other, and it was not pleasant to stay at Atlantis and dine in a place with no natural light. Food is good indeed,... More

There was a large group of us in Dubai for a friends birthday, therefore the Saffron restaurant was making a fair amount of money from us! Food was good and the atmosphere was good, however, I felt like we were treated like cattle. The 'security staff' were rude and unprofessional. Yes, there are people who have had a drink at... More

Unless you're from mars there is something here you will like. Korean, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, British roast beef. Something for all tastes. Loads of choice, loads of snacks, deserts, soups, cheese, bread and on and on. Whatever you like the chances are they have it. Meat Easter or veggie, fish, noodles and rice. Amazing variety. Constantly being refreshed. Super... More

The food selection is actually above my expectation for a buffet restaurant. They have Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Korean and western food and the quality is quite good especially the Japanese station. Again like other buffett restauarants, it is a big factory, loud and devoid of ambiance w lots of families w kids.

We had dinner and breakfast at Saffron. The food was good and the selection is amazing but the restaurant has a factory feel and no sense of luxury given the high prices. OK if you are after a big buffet

One of my favorite restaurants in Dubai, with a extensive selection of food, good value for money and beautiful surroundings. Some of my favorite dishes here: oysters, roasted duck, short beef ribs and Umm Ali.(traditional local sweet) A small selection from the Italian, Japanese, Indian, British Chinese and more cuisines that you find here.

Booked last minute for brunch following advice from the hotel concierge. The price was a bit daunting without knowing what kind of experience we were in for (£130 each) but when we were finished, we felt as though we got much more than that. Sparkling wine reception before being shown to your table. The usual photo session, but at £80... More

Love Saffron, amazing food and staff. Love rosted duck and dumplings, the sushi, coconut ice cream!!! And special thanks to Khalid, he is so nice. If you can add beef stir fried noodles and pistachio ice cream to the menu, it will be soooo great:)
