I am not a fan personally of 'all you can eat buffets, but they are everywhere, particularly if you want a glass of wine with lunch or dinner. This restaurant had one of the better buffets with a massive range of high quality food. The wine was good quality too. What made this place stand out from the crowd was... More

Just wanted to experience the revolving restaurant as not experienced anywhere else. Have to say i did enjoy the experience, although did not not have a wow factor. Went there for a buffet and they accept entertainer vouchers and was value for money. It was a buffet and the food was good. Would i do it again, probably no, would... More

Al Dawar is one of my favourite places in town. Whenever I have visitors , I can certainly recommend this venue for lunch or dinner. The restaurant Manager Rubel has a team of professionals that are taking good care of their customers. Qassim and Aslan did their best to make our dinner a memorable experience. The buffet selection is so... More

We had a family lunch party at Al Dawaar-Revolving Restaurant, to celebrate my father's 95th birthday. It was indeed a memorable experience and my father was absolutely overwhelmed by the arrangement, food and the scenic view from the revolving restaurant. The staff were very friendly and sang the birthday song while they brought in the complimentary cake. The main course... More

I had dinner here last night after years. Two former school mates were visiting the city for a day and I wanted to show them the stunning views across Dubai and Sharjah - their first time here. Al Dawaar is still the only revolving restaurant in town and has maintained its standards since opening way back in 1980. We used... More

Al Dawaar has a new manager and I am pleased to report that the high standards are being maintained. If anything the presentation of food is even better. This is a great venue for a special dinner, with a sophisticated ambiance and fabulous views across the city. Fresh seafood includes oysters king prawns mussels and sushi. Salads are excellent as...

You may want to have dinner in this restaurant for the great location: it's one of those restaurant that revolves (25th floor) and provides you a nice 360 degrees view of Dubai. So in terms of environment it's a nice choice. Food, instead, is pretty average. We went for the buffet formula and it was just ok. Sushi (although advertised)... More

This restaurant has an amazing concept. A revolving restaurant with a moving view of the Dubai skyline and city. The buffet has many different cultural tastes and flavors. Although I found it a bit pricey (8€ for a bottle of mineral water!) it can be affordable if you have entertainer vouchers. The quality of food is very good, but doesn't... More
