By far the best breakfast choice we have ever had. You can sit in the window area where the sun streams in and is quieter but you can also sit on the far side, near the chefs cooking area...this is very atmospheric and the chefs remember what you like to eat, even though they may only have served you once....

We had the crab at the Dunes Restaurant and it was very good. There were three choices. The chef cooked up all three for us to try. The staff were amazing, they gave us 5 star care.

All you can eat buffet was nice, a good selection and presentation over all. Lovely friendly waiters and hotel staff. Added bonus was the live background Jazz music. Was not very busy and would be a good place for business dinners.

Lobsterlicious night at Dunes Shangri La Dubai, is as the name suggests a lobster fest. Bisque, grilled, Thermidor, hot cold...you name it, they can do it. An excellent offering currently served in one of the ballrooms while the lobby is being renovated. Fixed price buffet menu, with many other options available if anyone in your party isn't partial to lobster!

Excellent choice from the business lunch & a la carte menu. Great service with helpful staff. Good choice of freshly prepared & appetising food & good value given the poor exchange rate at the moment
