International buffet with good deals and regular theme nights

Time Out Says

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
We’re not quite sure what to make of this restaurant, and neither do the staff who are clearly confused at the best of times. Interiors change based on theme nights on – when we went it was Far Eastern with lanterns and bright table runners, with the buffet (unlimited house pours) costing a reasonable Dhs149 per person. The menu, however, sticks to Arabic, European, Indian and Italian staples including curries, pizzas and pastas, right to burgers and sandwiches and yes, steak too. There’s a fair bit to choose from. Start with the mezze – we have been genuinely impressed by how fresh the houmous, mutabbal, kibbeh, tabouleh and fattoush have been in the past. Stay away from the grills however which tend to come out overdone. A chicken makhanwala, on the other hand, was delightful, although rather spicy. Mix it in with the rice and it’s fine, but there's usually quite a lot of basmati accompanying it. Desserts like the cheesecake and crème brulee are good – just not astounding. If you’re in Bur Dubai with friends who can’t reach a consensus on what cuisine they’d like to savour, head to Senses. Next time we’ll opt for the buffet and keep our fingers crossed.
