All Day dining, A colorful environment straight out of Paul Gaugin’s Tahitian paintings, ‘Manava’, meaning "Welcome" in Tahitian, provides all day dining, offering a succulent buffet selection of international cuisine. Striking a perfect balance between fresh and peaceful, guests are invited to bask in the ambience either inside amongst the tranquil sounds of flowing water, or out on the terrace. Adorned with the artistic masterpieces of the esteemed Paul Gauguin and Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Manava engages guests with a vibrant surrounding of Tahitian inspired Art Nouveau mastery, dedicating a separate room for each artist’s work.
The service was excellent. The staff were friendly especially Srikanth who was serving us took special care to ensure that my guests’ specific requirements were met... in fact even for the children’s special requests to him for ice cream (outside the menu). Ambience was great and the food served had variety.
Buffet asiatique très varié Savoir de quel pays provenait chaque plat aurait été sympa Desserts un peu moins bien que le reste du buffet Personnel agréable et efficace
I told the stuff that my wife’s birthday is today, they told me okey okey we will arrange but no action was done, it was so disappointed 😔
Dinner Buffet was amazing. Thank you for the surprise cake requested for my wife’s birthday. Will definitely come again.
The food was great & good value for money. Definitely recommend.
Food not suitable for foreigners. Fruit, dessert and juices are not up to standard.
Had an amazing experience dining at Manava Sofitel the Palm. You can really enjoy as the venue was quiet and posh. The staff were very friendly, polite and their service was really good. The food was great as well! 😄. Shout out to Mr. Kundal for an exemplary service.
The choice of food was amazing. Staffs were friendly and polite.
A great dining experience, very good value excellent food, service attentive and friendly and wide choice....will be dining there again.
I keep coming to Manava because of the quality service and value for money. The food is great but can be improved a little bit more. The atmosphere is really good, just a bit crowded on my last visit. Service is always exceptional and the place is clean and comfortable.
More veg options needed
Der Service war exzellent. Ich war im Zuge eines Iftar Buffets dort. Da es traditonell arabisch gehalten war, hat trotz der großen Auswahl vieles ähnlich geschmeckt. Noch dazu hat ein Buffet niemals die Aufmachung und den Charme eines a la carte Essens. A la carte kann ich mir aber 5 Sterne für Speise & Getränke durchaus vorstellen. Einzig die Atmosphäre hat mir nicht so gut gefallen, wobei dies nicht an den Räumlichkeiten gelegen ist (diese waren auf höchstem Niveau), sondern zum Einen wieder am wuseligen Buffet Charakter (laut, ständig laufen Leute herum) und zum Anderen, dass der ausgegebene Dress-Code vollkommen ignoriert wurde (jeder ist irgendiwe erschienen; hätte auch das Publikum einer Ballermann Kneipe sein können.) Soetwas hat so ein elegantes Hotel / Restaurant nicht verdient. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis war aber trotzdem sehr gut und ich würde jederzeit wieder hin hingehen.
We booked a table on the understanding that it was Italian night!! It was not to our taste at all & we barely ate anything, what we did try was inedible for our palette. We only booked as our children love Italian food. When someone has pre booked on the understanding they were getting Italian then that’s what they should get or at least get a message to say “unfortunately due to Ramadan we are not serving themed nights” then we would have re considered & booked else where as we totally respect this time. Very very disappointed. Waste of a nights holiday for us.
All was great enjoyed every bit of it thanks a lot
My wife and I had an amazing time.
We dined on 21st May for the first time at Manava and found the food to be very average. The food was ordinary buffet and there was only 1 ‘cooking station’ and the server looked very bored. Disappointing to be charged a mammoth 25aed for a single espresso too! There was absolutely no atmosphere and it felt like a kids club.
Towards the end of the lunch buffet, the waitress who I asked for coffee/tea for my guests (28 people), was very disinterested and did not take the order from my guests! Rather, she stood watching while I went around asking my guests on their preference of drink!
I thought my lunch experience was very pleasant, and great options of food. However I felt they could be improvements mades to some selections. Overall would visit again and was a great experience.
Bad service! Drinks were included nur no waiter to serve drinks. Table full of dirty dishes. Took too Long to clean table! Bad service for Sofitel!
it was a great experience and all the staff were fantastic, i had booked a table for 6 and even thought it was a busy week for them and we were a bit late, they did accomodate us pretty quick and i even sent the voucher by email as i had forgotten in the car. great staff and fantastic food
Choix limité mais la nourriture est de bonne qualié. En revanche la salle du restaurant est trop grande et impersonnelle : on dirait une cantine.
I feel you need to have a selection of vegetarian foods that are hot! Maybe Indian or Chinese or Mexican! Not just pasta!! It made for a Very expensive brunch only to be able to have salad and a plate of pasta! Also I feel you need to have live music to create more atmosphere!
