So it was my birthday and I wanted to do something different this year. I headed to Fairmont for their Thursday Dupper. At first I was confused whether it is the right choice or am I gonna be bored to death with food and atmosphere. So here I was entering in Spectrum on one, decor is smart and the lights are just perfect enough to darken the dining area (my stuffed plate specifically). I was given a tour of the place where they serve various kind of cuisines on offer for the evening. There was Indian, European, Thai, Mexican, Arabic appetizers and my favorite desserts section with toffee on dry ice and chocolate fountains. The music was catchy and it did get me in the right mood.

As my three guests and I had a seat, we were offered some amazing cocktails and beers. They do offer non alcoholic beverages but you have to specifically ask for the same. As far as food it concerned, they have a good variety but my vegan guests didn't have much on offer and we had to ask at every station if they had anything vegan. I will divide my review on basis of cuisines that I tried. This will give you folks a clearer view.

Indian :
The Dal bhukari from the Indian station was too salty!
tandoori prawns/chicken were delicious
wide variety of chutneys were at offer
Tandoori Rotis were fresh, light and crisp
No vegetarian starters

Arabic
- Vegetarian and non vegetarian mezzes were kept together.
- Hummos, moutabal which are basics were great.

European
- Great flavors in ever dish
- loved the hash browns with boiled vegetables

Mexican
Yes fresh Tacos! YUM YUM YUM. We loved every bit of it..delicious dips with chips.

Thai/ Far eastern
Fresh salads
Great dimsums.
Worth a try!

Desserts
Small chocolates cones were out of the world..
moist cupcakes were just too good.
toffee on dry ice, nice experience but not the taste
I want to live in their dessert bar..

Overall we enjoyed the atmosphere, very courteous staff , great drinks and good food. All this fun was worth 350 per person and I would say its really worth the price.

Having had dinner here a number of times we have never been disappointed. The food, ambience & service is excellent! Best of all is the selection, there are dishes to suit every palate; each and every one very pleasing.
So, we decided to go with 2 other couples to sample the champagne brunch. (There is a plethora of brunches in Dubai and most are well attended!)
As with the evening dinners the food, service & ambience were excellent. The seafood is really something else; the choice is never ending as is the supply, thanks to the continuously replenished food stations, with live cooking! The waiters were all very enthusiastic and ever-willing to help and to make sure everyone was happy, indeed the atmosphere was extrememly "happy"!
Highly recommend

Went to the Mama Chef promo on Thursday. I must say the front desk was a pleasure, but everything went belly up from then on. The food was not as expected, the curry was all water and the rice tasted like plastic. Service was also very slow and sloppy, a simple drinks order took 15 mins to get to the table. I heard the brunch is great but this one was not what i expected, A ruined date it was.

Did brunch here...again. It was fantastic as always. They've added a Mexican section with tacos, chips, salsa and guacamole. The station is also lined with an ice box full of Sol, so that's nice. The Manager let us know that they'll be dedicating one of their kitchens to Latin American cuisine, so look for more "South of the Border" offerings in the near future. AED 395 for "hops and vines" and AED 550 for Moet...

This place does a kick ass brunch. It has a tremendous selection of food, and they don't skimp on the booze. They are a bit tight with there timing 12-3. So, get in and get it on!

They're celebrating their 10th anniversary, so they discounted the Moet brunch, which is usually AED 550, to AED 395. Definitely a top-notch brunch in terms of selection and quality. Call me crazy, but the butter chicken was awesome. So was the live-cooking scallops and beef tenderloin in the Asian section. You really can't go wrong here. There's something for everyone, and as many times as I've been, the consistency is ALWAYS there...

i am still crowing this place as 'Best Brunch' in Dubai. Went here last weekend with a big group of friends and its always a good time. I am a big sushi fan and the sushi spread is awesome, and if they don't have anything you like the chef will just make you whatever you want. They cover everything from Japanese, Chinese, Indian, English, and so on.... there isn't anything they do no serve. it is definitely one of those brunches where you end up eating way to much and leave really uncomfortable.

This is my favourite brunch - it blows other brunches out of the water. What it lacks in outdoor space and views, it makes up for in sheer size and quality. It is such an occasion - with a complimentary glass of bubbles on arrival, and huge ice sculptures brimming with fresh seafood. The food is presented in such a way to make it mouthwatering. Even the roast beef is wagyu. There is a smoking bar area and a huge cheese room, sushi section, live cooking, desserts... I love this place!

Took advantage of the 50% off dinner deal they have going on this summer. Drink prices become normal and the food isn't so unreasonably expensive when it's half the price. The menu is really extensive, featuring appetizers and mains from Japan, India, China, Thailand, Europe, and Arabia, plus a raw bar. I had the Spicy Duck Salad to start and the Crispy Chili Beef for a main. Some of the others at the table felt like I out-ordered them, and I'd have to agree. Other menu items are hit or miss...

Great indoor brunch. Huge selection of different foods. I especially like the Asian section, and the shwarmas are fantastic. Also, I won the weekly draw for a free night's stay at the Farimont, so it was worth it.

Spectrum on One at the Fairmont Hotel is fast being appreciated by more and more poeple in Dubai. The reason is a wide menu of choice items that appeal to most visitors, and the fact that the food is prepared according to your taste. The place has no less than 8 kitchens that bring out the best in everything they do.

Spectrum on One is a one of a kind dining locale. Tasteful but not too extravagant, this is my favorite place to be at least 2 times a week when I want to be spoiled for choice and experience dining at its best.

For the food connossieur, dining in Spectrum on One at the Fairmont is a unique exeprience. Its not often that the chefs cater to your own tastes, or offer a special twist that only you like. Spectrum allows the diner this luxury, that is why it is so well regarded among Dubai hotel goers.

Can you imagine having kitchens that serve personalized meals to a demanding international crowd? I means some of the guests I could see were clearly at home ordering things just as they liked them, adn getting away with it. It only happens at the Fairmont Dubai, trust me. Outstandingly good.
