A restaurant that offers a sumptuous spread of delicacies located on the quieter side of Satwa, Dubai.
We always wanted to check this place out as it is conveniently located close to our workplace and also it’s a buffet restaurant, who doesn’t want to visit an all you can eat buffet place but our plans were never materialized. Fortunately, we were treated to lunch by our boss so yay! for us.

The interiors have a royal touch to it with elegantly lined pillars and excellent lighting which gives it a majestic feel. It is quite spacious and can comfortably accommodate parties or family gatherings.
Private Dining Area Available
Golden Treasure : The Everlasting Chocolate Fountain
Lunch Buffet [AED 59]: A lavish feast for the eyes as well as our growling tummies.
Soup & salad: Soup options were limited to one for vegetarians and one for non-vegetarians. The salad bar consisted of the usual salad options as well as signature salads served with a variety of dressings. All the items presented were fresh.
Chaat Counter: Yes, you heard that right. They have a live chaat counter that offer pani puri, bhel puri, dahi puri etc. We tried the pani puri and it was as close as it gets to the street chaat available back at home.
They have a gola (crushed ice) counter as well that offers a range of different syrups but unfortunately, no kala khatta which was quite disappointing.
Starters: The non-veg starters were definitely more than the veg options. Some of the dishes served were tandoori chicken, chicken malai kabab, murg hari mirch tikka, mutton seekh kabab and hot garlic fish. Among the vegetarian options, we were served hara bhara kabab, crispy corn, gobi manchurian and paneer tikka. All of them were impeccably delicious! Some of them being top notch while some just average.
Main course: Lesser options as compared to the starters but hey we aint complaining. Equal amount of options were available here for both vegetarians as well as non vegetarians. The plethora of food consisted of chicken dum biryani, chicken fried rice, jeera pulao, veg hakka noodles, butter chicken, paneer tikka masala, dal makhni, veg malai kofta and more. The main courses were a perfect blend of spices, deeply aromatic and rich in flavour. Indian breads such as naan, roti etc can be requested and brought to your table by one of the servers.
They do have a live pasta counter that includes red as well as white sauces and different kinds of pasta so that the dish prepared is exactly as per your customization.
Desserts: Oh oh! They have a chocolate fountain!! The chocolate was a perfect blend of belgium chocolate with an assortment of dippings such as wafers, marshmallows and strawberries. YUM! And this doesn’t end here. Oh no we have just begun. They have an ice cream counter with a great number of rich flavors including sinfully good dark chocolate and lotus flavors. The dessert spread includes both Indian as well as western. The desserts offered were strawberry jelly, mango pana cotta, cappuccino mouse, phirnee, shrikhand, gulab jamun and gajar ka halwa. They do have sugar free desserts as well. Most of the desserts were yummy but some were just at par.
In addition to the above, they also provide fresh juices and different kinds of lassi which is a must to try. All the juices that we ordered were quite fresh.
The servers were extremely helpful in explaining the dishes offered as well as catering to our every need. A staff would always be around to assist us at all times. It was our boss’s birthday and it was so sweet of the management to give us a complimentary cake on the house!
The prices for the buffet vary based on the time (lunch/dinner) and the day (weekday/weekend) but overall the price set is relatively reasonable and a definite value for money. We strongly recommend walking into this place on an empty stomach. Trust us on this one! The numerous assortment of delish dishes served leaves your head asking for one more bite and your stomach begging, ‘Please no more!’
