Recently we Dine in style and enjoy sensational views of Burj Khalifa over an international buffet restaurant, It’s in Dusit Thani Dubai, the hotel is an exciting and exclusive addition to a sophisticated global group. For over 25 years, Dusit Thani hotels have offered travelers exceptional luxury and classic Thai elegance and refinement in a number of exotic locations around the world.

We have been invited to enjoy Tandoori Night at “The Californian”, which is available every Sunday Night. The restaurant plays host to tantalising dishes from across the globe with its theme nights which change from day to day to offer diners an endless amount of choice, satisfying any taste. The relaxed space offers stunning views of the tallest structure of the world and downtown Dubai, making it the perfect place for a relaxed breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Some of the highlights of the themed night dinner were:

  1. Pani Puri & prawn curry
  2. Tandoori station with delicious kebabs
  3. Rasmalai (dessert)

We loved the view on Sheikh Zayed Road but that won’t be enough alone to send us back to the place so let’s talk about the main thing i-e FOOD. The menu selection was not scarce & their BBQ items and Tandoori Chicken is unbeatable very tender and juicy at the same time rich in taste. They offer much oriental fare. I must commend on their kindliness & courtesy of the staff however they need some refit in ambiance and lighting through the restaurant.

I was actually confused on what to eat all items look so tempting, with in the capacity of the same buffet I loved the selection of the salads, and my favourite was mushroom and potato cold salad. The waiter introduced himself and took the order for our drinks and special starters – yummy pani puri. While we were scanning the buffet area, the Executive Chef Tissa Kuragodage described to us some of the mains on the buffet. Californian has a simple menu but simultaneously caters to different tastes. Chef Tissa has indeed brought a lot of variety and fusion to the menu at the same time. We chat long about his expertise and journey in the region and the kitchen challenges of day-to-day allocation. He has been so gracious in his gestures and serving both, we heard some great stories of his kitchen pickets and guards, it was indeed a lovely afternoon very well hosted that we dint feel our 3 hours there.


Each of the mains and desserts were tasty and delicious, and also replenished swiftly by the chef at live counters. The only thing I wasn’t satisfies was the light at night time, I am sure it must have been great natural light in the day time which might have been enough to brighten the area however there is nothing to complain about the food, we liked it alot.

Astounding views of the surrounding area made our dinner even more interesting at this novel vantage point. I can’t wait to explore more if the other restaurant’s offerings are relatively this adventurous in Dusit Thani; this all in one buffet is a reasonably-priced desi menu with some interesting Chat/Pani Puri Trolley alongside the spreaded menu items. There Tandoori items are indeed much to stand out about the Californian.


If you’re in the market for fuss-free, frill-free lunch/dinner and a reasonable buffet deal, you could give this a try and will not be disappointed. You may also enjoy their Mexican night on Monday (Being famous for Quesadilla) & New Orleans on Tuesdays. (Must try their Chicken Jambalaya)
