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 venue, staff, service and food surpassed my expectations. We were celebrating my Husband's birthday and they made it extra special for him. I would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant, it was amazing. Thank you to all the staff, especially the lady who seated us and arranged a special birthday treat for my husband.

Asian Buffet was good, but food was not kept warm enough. Service was very slow.

Food ok, poor choice. Very difficult to find something for our children to eat. Needs a pasta and pizza station. Starters and desserts very limited selection.

Extremely excellent experience with all meaning, only service staff should pay more attention when you sit far from the buffet, we were asking many times staff to clear the table or serve hot drink, but it is perfect

Hi I booked a dinner with my work team, some of my colleagues are from Belgium and were not too impressed about the quality and variety of food from the evening buffet. There was no meat (beef), no fish (apart from sea food lasagna and fish burgers) , very poor selection. There was only a meat loaf that I would not eat. One type of curry (Korma), the quiche tasted like plastic. I have to say I did not have bad food like this for a long time. Very disappointed about the evening.

The ambience,food and drink was amazing.We were very happy with our choice to visit Sofitel for our birthday celebration.The only thing that I wanted to mention was even after emailing that we were celebrating our birthday when we asked for a cake the waiter said that we had to tell 24 hours in advance.I thought it was understood that when a person is celebrating birthday we were expecting a cake.It would have been nice if we had a cake to celebrate.

Was emailed a dress code but many people wore shorts and flip flops. Only 1 person manning 3 cooking stations. Very limited selection- no sushi. Kitchen 6 at the Marriot is a lot better. Beautiful hotel with Urban garden but the quality and food was a big disappointment for a 5* hotel in the Palms.l

The restaurant was kind enough to answer my request by serving a cake with "happy engagement" note on the top. The service was excellent.

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.
