Jumeirah Beach Hotel is home to numerous restaurants, but this beachside set-price buffet venue certainly takes the cake in terms of location. If the weather permits, you won’t have to think twice about sitting outside. Snacking on Malay and Thai buffet treats, your meal will be accompanied by Dubai’s most iconic guest: the Burj Al Arab. This restaurant sits smack-bang in front of the sail-like building and has perhaps the best view of the hotel in all of the city. The food isn’t too bad either (without being fantastic). There’s plenty of it, from prawn crackers and popadums to stir fries, curries and some rather tired looking salads. The beef and chicken satay is a must, as is the chicken laksa and roti canai with traditional Malaysian dal or chicken curry. Vegetarian options are pretty slim, but sweet-tooths will go nuts for the dessert table, which is stacked with everything from mango cheesecake to apple crumble, chocolate orange cake and a chocolate fountain.
Open daily 7.30am-midnight. Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Jumeirah Road, www.jumeirah.com (04 406 8999).
