YALUMBA – LE MEREDIEN
Yalumba has a reputation for being a rowdy party place.Diners are given the choice of buffet and à La carte options. Starting with the delicious eggs Benedict from the à la carte menu, served with salmon on brioche, or the traditional English fried breakfast with all the usual trimmings, including black pudding. The seafood is incredibly fresh, the highlight being oysters served on a bed of ice.
For mains there is a selection of international dishes on the buffet, including Indian and Chinese, or roast dinner.
The small and cozy indoor restaurant is far from the most exotic venue in Dubai, but things are livened up by a cheese-tastic DJ, which can have punters on the dance floor by 3 pm on rowdier days. It’s better in winter months when the pleasant terrace becomes a bearable place to linger throughout the afternoon.
Yalumba features modern eclectic cuisine with a unique blend of flavors from the East and West. The restaurant, famous for its themed bubbly Friday brunch also offers a lavish breakfast and lunch buffet with à la carte options.

We get a huge section to choose from the MAIN COURSE which includes Lamb shank with tomato & coconut flavor, Baby chicken skewed on top of green peas, Fish fillet, Wanton noodles, Wok fried prawns with rice noodles, Tuna steak etc,,,The huge section gives us the choice of choosing our own best dishes but i recommend to taste every bite of it all as all of it are so freshly made with homemade sauces and homemade spices and herbs.
The food display section itself increases our appetite and we couldn’t resist our self to start of.
