The Gem Garden

At the far end of the Holiday Inn Al Barsha's open plan lobby sits this buffet restaurant. Although the quality is not as great as the impressive Thai restaurant (The Royal Buddha) across the corridor the regular meal deals and promotions make this worth considering. Call ahead to discover the evening's theme although Asian specialties seems to be the default. Although you're likely to find many similar quality restaurants across the city Gem Garden is one of few in this corner of Al Barsha offering all-you-can eat deals at quite this standard.
