In a tweet: A friendly and relaxed brunch with high-quality international cuisine. Best for a family brunch.
A bright, modern space that’s smartly designed around the extensive selection of global grub on offer. First on your right as you enter? The bread station, with wafts of fresh loaves drifting out enticingly into the lobby. Smart. Near the kids’ zone? The ice creams and chocolate fountain. Brilliant. The decor, meanwhile, is minimalist and shiny without ever feeling cold.
The food: Suq delivers in a big way on its international promise, with great dim sum, lovely Indian curries that aren’t afraid to pile on the spice, a good old British roast and more. Plus points for a fantastic seafood station that boasts spiny legs of Atlantic crab, massive prawns, middling (but plentiful) oysters, fresh and fantastic sushi, and all manner of seafood salads.
The crowd: A chilled-out mix of families, swimsuited people fresh off the beach and friends out for a relaxed meal.
The dress code: As varied and relaxed as the sentence above would suggest. Come as you are.
The service: Simply extraordinary. Friendly, attentive and brilliant with the little ones. Faultless.
Extras & entertainment: A jazz band noodle in the middle of the room, while a widescreen TV (with the sound off) plays Pixar next to a drawing table for the kids.
Highs & lows: This is a wide-ranging, quality brunch with some of the friendliest staff in the city. The food is top quality and generous. No one-oyster-a-head lark here. Disappointingly, for something that bills itself as a family affair, the selection of ‘kids’ food is very limited. Though they’ll happy knock up some nuggets for fussier small folk.
The after party: The Four Seasons is stuck out a bit on its own, but in the hotel you’ll find up-market British bar Hendricks and the chilled out Mercury Lounge.
