Burj al Arab Junsui Restaurant review

The Burj Al Arab’s Asian restaurant, Junsui, has participated in Jumeirah Restaurant Week. Junsui is located just off Jumeirah Beach Road. I booked a dinner buffet on a Thursday to celebrate Mum and Dad’s silver anniversary.

We were warmly welcomed by the staff dressed in a golden Asian dress. You can sit and relax at the lounge with a few drinks while waiting for your table to be prepared. After a few minutes, we were called and introduced to the 12 live cooking stations of the rich flavours from the Far East. So much for this culinary journey, the dining rooms were very stylish covered with Swarovski crystals. The table was arranged with a stem of rose as the staff accompanied us.

We started the journey towards the cooking stations. I opted for the Chinese foods first including my favourite ‘Peking duck’ and wanton noodles, steamed in front of me by the lovely chef. The Peking duck was tender and rich in flavour while the wanton noodles are warm, perfect to start the evening. The vegetables were fresh and portions are well distributed.

The journey continued in the Japanese station. I was delighted to see fresh foods waiting to be put on the plate. You name it, sushi, maki, seafood, shellfish and more. I took a portion of each sushi and then asked the chef to prepare the octopus for me. It was my first time to eat such and it was really challenging. Sushi was fine and the ingredients were well distributed. As soon as I munched, the flavours burst in my mouth. It was delicious. The octopus was tender, it tasted like crab sticks and I thought I liked it.

Two hours had passed and all of us were already full. We couldn’t stop eating so we opted for some desserts like the home-made ice cream. It was not too sweet and tasted really good. The staff prepared a sumptuous cake and some sweets to celebrate the occasion. We were very happy to have dined at Junsui restaurant. Not to mention the eye-catching, beehive-like architecture inside the Burj Al Arab or the gigantic aquarium were the marine life welcomed the visitors, it was indeed a memorable night.

If you have guests in Dubai, you can give them a chance to dine at the only seven star hotel in the world. The dinner buffet costs around 500dhs and it’s definitely worth-visiting.
