Wonderful dinner buffet and show. Worth the drive even if some of your party think it's farther than the moon. Roast lamb is fantasic. Try the sheeshah, it is really good. An evening to remember.

A highlight of our month's visit to Dubai family...we relished the desert 'fortress' ambiance and the varied, multiple cooking stations...serving ample portions of freshly-grilled fish, kabobs, chicken, steak, etc., and salads galore for dedicated vegans. The entertainment of live Arab music, Turkish-style twirling dancers, and a curvaceous belly dancer, also featured a moving tableau camel 'caravan', Bedouin horsemen, and a... More

We arrived early and strolled through the gorgeous Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa (which is now on my bucket list as a place to stay) Its a welcome relief from the glitz of inner city Dubai. Its a short stroll through the desert to the restaurant which... More

It was a long late afternoon drive to the hotel. It was however a pleasant drive as the weather was cool. Quite a walk from the parking area to the restaurant as well. I have been here on 2 other occasions around 5 years ago and do not recall having to walk so far. At the restaurant, they seem to... More

As I entered to a warm welcome in the fantastic al fresco restaurant, it was surprising to see that most of the tables were taken. Tourists revel at the fine food that is available in the buffet. The experience was special with the chef and the staff explain about each dish. The entertainment show including darwish dance, belly dance, camel... More

Worth visiting it you haven't experiences one of these tradition evenings but a bit pricey for what's on offer. Food wasn't that exciting - buffet with a good selection. The best part was the 'caravan' performance of camels, riders etc moving across the top of the restaurant and making a beautiful backdrop in the night sky.

Be entertained throughout the evening as mesmerising dancers weave their magic beneath the stars to the sounds of a live band. There is also no mistaking the mouth-watering aroma of Arabic cuisine as it drifts from the live cooking stations, wood-fired ovens and spit roasts.
