“Saturday morning dawned on us and after a night out on the town, brunch was the only thing on our minds. With the weather as perfect as it was, the Saturday Picnic Brunch at Iris, Yas Island, seemed like the best option. So, we made our way there.
With the sun in our face and the wind in our hair, we dug into the bite-sized food that was available at the many cooking stations. Sushi, tacos, mini burgers, crepes, waffles, kebabs, chicken wings, shrimp, shawarmas and so much more, was exactly what we needed to fill our stomachs and lull us into a food induced coma. But the one station that caught my eye was the ‘build your own creation’ style salad bar that had you putting it together in mason jars!
This brunch is perfect for a family day out. With a massive grass area that is chock full of games and arts and crafts, children are thoroughly entertained through it all. And even with summer bearing down upon us, the location at the Yas Marina meant we were as cool as cucumbers through the afternoon. This is definitely a place we will be coming back to soon.”- said SC.
“It was not our first visit to Iris, Yas Island, however the day vibe was refreshing mainly due to the weather. The location chosen by the franchise could not have been better, the views from anywhere within Iris provide greenery to children running around with yachts gliding along with the waves in the marina.
The service was consistent, staff swiftly moving from table to table on the lookout for any customer requests. On arrival of the drinks, we were pleased to find out that they were not watered down, which is a common find across various brunches.
Multiple live cooking stations gave us a drool sensation; from the scent of freshly cooked crepes and waffles to mini burgers and not to forget scrumptious sushi which melted in our mouth. The highlight was the staff’s flexibility to create a customized your dessert with multiple ice cream scoops and strawberries layered!
We found this brunch to be among the top five in the country for choice, service and ambience. Highly recommended towards various age groups planning a birthday or a special event, since it is the most family friendly brunch I have been to. Even with summer around the corner the brunch will go on since Iris ensures their guests leave happy and come back for more!”- said CR.
