From £126pp (with free flowing bubbly)
Bubbalicious is one of Dubai’s most popular brunches. Three top restaurants combine to provide the spread, so you can guarantee that just about every dish is covered. There’s succulent steak, Arabic meze, traditional roasts and even a dedicated chocolate station. Brunches are as much about the drinks as they are about the food, and Bubbalicious doesn’t disappoint with its laboratory-style drinks station. ‘Scientists’ create radioactive-looking glow in the dark concoctions in test tubes and drinks are made with bubbling liquid nitrogen. Entertainment comes in the form of a three-piece band and a troupe of acrobats, just to add to the spectacle.
Best bit: the cocktail lab.
From £65 - £115pp
Zuma is a sushi lovers’ dream. Much more than your standard Japanese fare, it offers endless platters of exquisite high-quality sushi, a range of Japanese yakitori, as well as salads, noodles and meat dishes. Foodies will love the delectable black cod and the elegantly thin-sliced sashimi, and you can even order á la carte to avoid queues at the buffet. The chic Japanese-style décor is classy and minimalist, and the dress code is ‘elegant’, so this is the venue for a sophisticated soiree.
Best bit: the black cod.
From £90pp (with soft drinks and selected house beverages)
This ultra-glamorous brunch has been described as ‘a huge birthday party’, so if you’re up for a big Friday celebration – Saffron is your place to be. The opulent venue is huge, so it’s a great option for big groups, and there’s a brilliant range of food to please everyone including fresh seafood and Asian dishes. When it comes to drinks, the creative beverage options include giant watermelon cocktails, shots of sake in pipettes and mini bottles of bubbly. And it wouldn’t be a birthday-esque party without entertainment, which comes in the form of magicians and DJs playing the likes of Michael Jackson and Beyoncé.
Best bit: the party vibe.
From £131pp (sparkling wine package)
If fine dining and a banquet fit for royalty are right up your street – you’ll love tucking into the likes of foie gras, Fine de Claire oysters and charcuterie platters at Traiteur. Tailored to the serious foodies, the buffet spread isn’t as diverse as other brunches, but the mouth-watering menu has been carefully put together by top chefs and the emphasis is on quality over quantity. Highlights include a 'Temple of Cheese' with ports matched by a resident sommelier, delectable seafood platters and live dessert stations with homemade ice cream and a chocolate fountain.
Best bit: the Temple of Cheese.
From £92pp (for the bubbly package)
This extravagant brunch has been around the longest and is still going strong. Yalumba is known as the biggest party brunch in town – and you’re suitably provided with party hats, balloons, streamers and whistles on every table, just to make this abundantly clear. The spread includes seafood platters, Asian fare and grilled meats, and once you’ve had your fill, the tables and chairs are moved to make room for the dancefloor and the party properly begins. The main highlight here is the free-flowing Champagne – the waiters are extra attentive, ensuring that your glass is never empty from start to finish.
Best bit: Bollinger on tap.
