Very Good the Sea Food Buffet, we went there for celebrating birthday But something about the white wine Sauvignon: The 2 first glass of Sauvignon were very perfect, but after change of bottle (same wine), it was a disaster. I try to explan this to the guy, but he cannot understand. For him, a bottle is a bottle of wine and who can make the difference. Said this, Im not sure next time I will enjoy the place. Sea Food suppose to have a good white wine along the dinner.

we enjoyed a lot the food the service of all waiter waitresses and even their on duty superior. it was a great place to stop and dine with the family or some friends the money you will pay will be worth it. im surely to recommend this to some of my friends and co workers.. such an amazing choices of food from starter to dessert..

Recommended Dishes: eat all you can all are taste good especially live cooking of your choice menu...

the food was variety and quality was under our expectations

Good but after 10 pm the services bad

Recommended Dishes: salamon

Delicious food,wide variety,amazing ambiance,friendly and professional staff.

Wish they would have the love cooking stations during Ramadan iftar. Was dissapointed to see lack of seafood prawns, no lobster.keeping that aside, overall experience was pleasant

Recommended Dishes: sushi, bbq

Great experience!

We were there for the Arabic brunch and the food variety was enormous! They have the typical Arabic dishes all delicious. But Anise also gives you the classic dishes with a twist like the harrira soup, meat sambousek and the fatteh...The service is also friendly, helpful and unobtrusive...would definitely recommend Definit

Recommended Dishes: fatteh chicken, harrira soup

staffs, taste/selection of food, atmosphere --- BEST!!! 5 stars, cheers :)

A very enjoyable lunch buffet. Excellent quality food plus very courteous and attentive service.
