    Overall was very good. Was unable to use entertainer for seafood night even after calling ahead and confirming that I could. Also no cocktail options with the house package was disappointing.

    Had some of the best food and service when I went there for dinner with my family. It was a pleasure to be there and meet with such friendly staff.

    Thank you very much for the exemplary service. Kudos to Nilam and Victoria and their Head (sorry didn’t get his name) for going an extra mile in assisting us on my daughter’s birthday celebration. We had an amazing time! Service at its best! Food selection was not wide, Wednesday was only chicken in the menu but would still choose KHAYAL over any other 5 stars all day dining in Abu Dhabi. Special thanks to Manager Irene for the consideration and her management of an amazing team. God bless everyone!

    Khayal is at the top when it comes to food quality. We came to celebrate my mother’s birthday and it was awesome. Thanks to those who assisted us. Will definitely come back ❤️

    The whole ambiance is relaxing and perfect to enjoy a quiet dinner with family and friends. There's a wide variety of dishes plus there's a live cooking station for pasta and noodles so your visit is really worth it. I've tried many buffets at hotels, and Khayal is by far one of the best restaurants in terms of service, food quality and variety. I particularly loved their creamy Tuscan chicken and grilled beef with peppercorn jus. The staff are also very accommodating, especially the receptionist and the servers. Will definitely go back there when I get a chance.

    The staff was absolutely amazing! They sang Happy Birthday to a member of my group which was great and took me by surprise, and was very much appreciated. They served us their signature welcoming drink which was an absolutely amazing gesture (and had a great taste!) I’ve been coming to this restaurant for the past 3 years and it never fails to amaze me.

    Add bbq in the menu having kebabs. Add custard in the desserts. Ice cream bar should be available to pick at our own instead of calling someone and fetch a scoop for us
