Al Dawaar at The Hyatt Regency (5 star) is Dubai's only revolving restaurant & is located on the 25th floor: It spins at a rate of one complete turn every 2 hours; just enough time to see it all during a unique & relaxed lunch or dinner.
This highly sophisticated venue's decor is chic and classy, with attentive waiters and soft background music. This is one of the city's all-time favourites, and not just for tourists - so it's highly adviseable to make reservations.
You get a great view of the airport, the never-ending traffic, the entrance to the Creek as well as the port and the sea. An awe-inspiring buffet allows you to choose from an extensive selection of food from salads to shrimp to lobster; with specialities from Arabic, Chinese, European and Novelle Cuisine... you'll definitely be re-filling your plate more than once ;-)
Dinner Buffet: AED 230.- per person (drinks charged extra)
Lunch Buffet: AED 165.- per person (drinks charged extra)
(Prices in year 2011)
1 US Dollar = 3.67 AED (UAE Dirhams)
TIP: Watch out for the cost of any extra drinks: they are at least 40% more expensive than in most bars & clubs.
TIP: Bring a light shawl or jacket, as the air conditioning can be arctic!
Open daily: For buffet lunch from 12:30pm - 03:30pm and
for dinner from 06:30pm - midnight.
Favorite Dish: You may also order items from their great a-la-carte menu, but this restaurant has gone down in Dubai's hall-of-fame for it's enormous, luxurious buffet and that's what I'm going to enjoy!
Special Offer for children: For Friday brunch, each child up to the age of 6 years dines free, and each child aged between 7 - 12 years receives a 50% discount when accompanied by 2 paying adults.
This is also a very nice place for Xmas dinner or Xmas-day lunch.
UPDATE early 2008: this may be one of Dubai's oldest hotels, but their recent rennovation work is now completed with a new, chic, modern and sophisticated luxurious look. I'm very impressed with the change!
--> Please note that since the beginning of 2008, this restaurant employs a no-smoking policy.
