We had a lovely dinner at Arabesque Cafe at Arjaan by Rotana in Dubai Media City. We arrived on a Wednesday night and found out that the buffet spread highlight had a barbecue theme.
Arabesque Café offers buffet theme nights from Sunday to Thursday where every night has a different type of cuisine. The friendly staff greeted us upon arrival and brought us to our table.

Having tried a number of buffets in Dubai, whether it be during brunch or dinner, we decided to take our time instead of heading to the food area right away. At around 7pm, there was plenty of time available since the buffet closes at 10:30pm. We ordered a pot of Moroccan tea.

Spacious Restaurant for Private Dinners and Small Events
This was our first time to visit Arjaan by Rotana hotel and we were delighted by the ambiance of the restaurant. Arabesque Cafe has very high ceilings which makes the place very spacious.
The staff mentioned that some areas had long tables prepared because of a number of guests they were to serve the next day. The restaurant can handle private dinners and small events as needed. Better call them if you wish to reserve.

Arabesque cafe is a family-friendly restaurant where you can bring your family and friends for a good time over sumptuous food.
We noticed a Kids Zone area where children can hang out and play before or after they’re done with their meals. This is great for adults who want to have more time for good conversations over lunch or dinner.
