Let’s get this straight: Junsai isn’t cheap but it’s probably the most affordable way of eating at the iconic Burj Al Arab. Located on one of the lower floors, the white and diamond-inspired buffet restaurant is actually fairly restrained compared to the hotel’s lobby areas and a low ceiling, marbled floor and different sized rooms make for a smart, enticing restaurant. Even on weeknights Junsai’s busy and has a welcoming buzz to it – a similar atmosphere to a brunch.
The restaurant offers sushi, sashimi, seafood, dim sum, wok dishes and more, with the obligatory mini dessert selection and chocolate fountain to finish. There are also a number of live cooking stations: teppanyaki, Peking duck, noodle dishes and satay can all be conjured up before your eyes, whilst if you get too lazy to actually walk to your food, overly polite waiters will hustle it to you. Service can be over attentive at times but is only a small niggle in the face of an otherwise outstanding meal.
