This modern steakhouse has rediscovered its mojo: the food is spot on, and the attention to detail ensures that Hunter’s offers that little something extra. The sleek, neutral décor is a refreshing break from many of the city’s manly red venues, and the menu is surprisingly easy to navigate, with steaks categorised by cut, rather than grade of meat. The chefs demonstrate their flair in the kitchen by turning out expertly cooked steaks, accompanied by thoughtfully prepared sides. If we had to pick faults, it’s that the staff can be over-attentive – after the fourth time of asking, surely they’d realise that yes, the food is fantastic and yes, we’re enjoying it very much, thank you. Rein it in a little and leave diners to tuck in – after all, the first-rate food speaks for itself.

We went to Hunters after hearing great reviews and promising steaks but were sorely disappointed. The service was very good, our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu etc however we waited over 30minutes for our mains to arrive. When the steak did eventually arrive, one steak was burnt and both very chewy.

A 100dhs steak at the mall is much better than this 300dhs hunters steak!

Great service and great food overall. The place was very cold which turned our steaks colder quickly. Expensive but pays what it costs.
Very friendly staff. I'd definitely come back, is the best steak in Dubai.

Today was the first time I visited this restaraunt and the hotel itself.

Well what can I say the food was certainly delicious, and we were welcomed in a friendly way and showed to our table, which was good, the selection is a bit small but everything we tried was good.

But the restaurant lacks decor and/or athmosphere, this is something that should be reconsidered, I mean it's very basic, they should improve it.

The welcome was very good. The waitress allocated to our table was cold, arrogant and matron-like. The steaks were excellent and the side dishes were well prepared. The service was disastrous - my daughters meal came first and she finished before the adults main courses were served. The waitress mixed the drinks up, yet apparently she knew better than my guests as to what they wanted to drink.
The side dishes were cold and were reheated, which when they returned the steak was cold.
I certainly would not recommend this restaurant.

Robotic service usual hotel style without personality.
Served by about 6 different staff no continuity.
Average food - steak was OK nothing special, very dry for med-rare.
Not good price points considering the quality.
Overall, did an OK job but certainly wouldn't rush back.

the only thing that was good was perhaps the manager of the F&B who some how paid attention and try to fix things but even though the selection of wine was very minimum and the food didn't give me any spark in my taste buds. i wouldn't deffenitly recomend this restaurant a whole new evaluation. for failier

i happened to go to hunters for the celeberation of my husbands birthday.it was a mind blowing experience for me as the waiters and managers everyone took their interest on celeberating it with great enthusiasm.they arranged surprise cakes and wines for the party.another excitement was the "bubbalicious" which is the new venture of westin.it was full of fun and entertaintment with chinese circus,petting zoo etc which are the added attractions.really it was full of bubbles plus delicious moments.and ofcourse the steak was really great.the service and the ambience of the restaurant was indeed excellent!!!am looking forward for eating out there in most of the precious moments in my life as we get the full value for the money spend.

I never ate though not for want of trying! I have tried twice and on both occasions have been told to book early or come back at 22.00hrs. The staffs attitude was not good at all. Having eaten all over rthe world and hundreds of places in Dubai they appear to have attitude.

My wife and I decided to have dinner at Hunters as we both are steak lovers. After reading about the fantastic steaks i decided on the 20 oz Porterhouse and my wife opted for the strip loin. The sides were pricey but hey, when in a touted best restaurant why not splurge. The service was very good. When the mains arrived I was disappointed to see what appeared to be about 14-16oz Porterhouse steak that was slightly charred. I spoke to the manager and he assured me that the 20oz precook steak is what I recieved. I told him I have been eating steaks for over 30 years and the steak was not close to 20 oz pre cooked. The steak was not exactly bursting with flavor either. My wire's experience was the same. The sides were small and the mashed potatoes were more like potato soup.We will try another steak restaurant next time.

Though i was staying in Palm i never got a chance to visit Westin. Now i regret that its too late as i had a wonderful evening at Hunters Room and Grill. Service was exceptionaly great and friendly and our waiting staff helped us in choosing the steaks. She made sure she got the right details and the food quality when came out was the best. Though on the expensive side you get the full value for moneuy.

We've eaten here 3 times and each time it has been superb. The portion sizes are just right and the meat so so tasty. The side orders (albeit a bit overpriced and we had to chase some of them up) are lovely and everything is so well presented. The menu size is not overwhelming and so you know that what the chef cooks will be superb as he's not trying to create a vast array of dishes. They seem to stick to a manageable menu and they get each dish right. The staff are friendly and the ambience very pleasant. I really look forward to eating here. The fillet steak I had was stuffed with all sorts of delicious things and all four of us loved our food each time we have been there. It's not cheap though, so we keep it for special occasions.
