In a tweet: There’s something fishy about the lack of fish at this aquatic affair. Best for brunch with more of a 'just lunch' feel.
The venue: At Sloane’s, it’s hard not to be overwhelmed with a feeling of being in the lobby. Coupled with closed blinds by the windows, from arrival the atmosphere is immediately lacking. Tables line the edges of the room, which also doesn’t help – wherever you choose to sit, you’ll never feel like you’re where the action is.
The food: Despite describing itself as a seafood brunch, the buffet doesn’t feel especially seafoody (there aren’t even any oysters, a disappointing omission, and apparently because ‘it’s too warm in Dubai at the moment’ to serve them), with mixed grills, chicken curries and cold cuts taking up as much, if not more, room. There’s a cold selection featuring sushi, crabs legs and a couple of fishy salads, plus a flat top where fillets of fish (including naughty hammour) are cooked to order. Unfortunately, these aren't cooked well on our visit - tasting overhwelmingly of acrid-tasting oil.
