Saffron, Atlantis the Palm jumeira

It’s been 3 and a half years since i moved in to dubai and i have experienced most of what dubai has to offer and as a foodie everything i see was foodilicious. Am not sure if that word exists in the dictionary but dubai is what brought out the food blogger in me. I have been to the ferrari world and taken the ride on ferrari rosa the worlds fastest roller coaster and i have had a very unforgettable experience at the wadi adventure park by going water rafting and almost drowning on the second round. As a person who knows no swimming it was a bad experience but a memorable one as am still alive πŸ™‚ trust me it was not very bad finally. So the only place that kept me wondering and thinking was the atlantis the palm jumeira. I heard people say that you need to dine or stay in to have a look at the hotel so i was waiting for a chance to dine to have a look. Finally i was glad to have won a dinner at saffron from there instagram reposting contest and it was a complimentary seafood dinner for two. It was on a weekday and we drove in straight to the vallet parking area and entered the hotel. It was nice looking around. It was big and the saffron was near the pool side. Am not a restaurant reviewer and dont much enjoy dinning out especially with a toddler so we usually prefer take aways or cooking at home and don’t think fine dinning is a good idea at this stage.

We decided to go to the saffron dinner not just yo eat but to tour the atlantis hotel at palm jumeira. Saffron was huge and they had 7-8 stands of food.
A bread stand
A dessert stand
A salad bar
A sushi bar
A section for indian
A Chinese section
A section for main course
Another section for asian stuff
I was given a tour by a lady who explained what’s special and we were seated along the pool side door which was a bit quiet.
Yes they did have a bar for drinks as well.
I loved the bread stand which had a very delicious cheese manakish. The dessert stand was outstanding. They had candies to icecream and creapes to canape style desserts. I was tempted to try all the desserts. Loved the small cake like pastry stuff. My boy enjoyed the lolipops and marshmallows. He also kept some waiters entertained and had fun running around πŸ™‚
I forgot to try the salad section but they had a wide variety of salads and they all looked beautiful and appetising.
I would say the price for this seafood buffet is well worth and they do have a good selection of food.
Thanks to saffron for having us and hope you can drool over my images πŸ™‚
