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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!
