Friday brunches have been a bit tricky and most often you don’t get to find your seafood expectations. So here’s a safer bet where you are assured to find all that you need to satisfy your seafood cravings. Seafood Brunch at Na3Na3, The Address Dubai Mall is every Friday from 12:30pm to 04:00pm. AED 320 per guest inclusive of soft beverages but interestingly on the same line they have mentioned you get one seafood brunch on their compliments when you purchase one which means buy one get one free!
The interiors are tall and airy. You could also sit outside which is also not a bad idea. There is LIVE singing at the restaurant. The music is played from her laptop. The restaurant is not crowded. I never had to wait in the queues at the buffet counter which is a good thing.
For the drinks we could pick any of the fresh juices. All of them were freshly made. If you wanted something fancy like a mocktail it would come with a separate charge. You can also order hot drinks such as tea/coffee at the end of your friday brunch which we did. I went for a lime tea which I thought was the perfect ending to my heavy brunch here at Na3Na3, The Address Dubai Mall.

They say the first impression is the best impression. And these guys really impress you with an amazing array of salads. One of the best Arabic Mezza you can also ask for. The salads were so good that I kind of over ate the salad and so I had to reduce the intake of the mains. It’s not often you find a lot of choice with consistency in taste and quality. Na3Na3 Friday Brunch really excels in the salads department. The vegetable shooters were really nice. The taste is a little different but you can begin to appreciate the new taste considering the healthy ingredients.
- Lobster tail grill
- Tiger prawn Cajun
- spiced calamari
- Mix sea food skewer
- Shish tawok
- lamb kofta
I don’t have to tell you but you know the crowd puller is always the charcoal grills. From the seafood surely the Jumbo sized tiger prawn were hell of an attraction. They also tasted fresh and succulent to be precise. The Mixed sea food skewer was a nice combo of tantalizing starters. The most I ate today from their seafood brunch would be their outstanding Marinated Nile perch baked in banana leaves.The fish was well marinated and along with quality of fish, it truly was a delight to my Friday brunch.
From the non seafood section, the Shish Taouk would be my pick. You can find hot breads being made as well as the grills which are constantly delivered as they get empty. Fortunately the crowd were in limits and so there wasn’t much waiting for any of the grills. I thought the vegetable stuffed chicken was unique, it looked like a giant ginger from a distance but it turned out to be chicken and vegetables.
- Fried chicken strips
- Veal and potato croquettes
- Baked macaroni
Kids were not forgotten here. They had their favourites like the chicken strips and fries. Here’s one item I thought that needed improvement which was their salmon burger. It looks great from a distance but I wasn’t really convinced after having my first few bites. The salmon that is served separately in the Grills section is much better. The roasted lamb leg was ok in taste even though it looked very enticing.
There were freshly shucked oysters served with different kind of toppings and sauces. They also had a neat collection of assorted Sushis. You would find seafood as well as just vegetable stuffed sushis. They are cold and very well made Sushi.
Whole cake and tarts
- Chocolate mousse cake
- White satin cake
- Pear almond tart
- Pecan caramel tart

- Lemon meringue tartlets
- Coffee eclair
- Pistachio cream Brule

There is a big fat collection of desserts for the seafood brunch at Na3Na3. Desserts from different region and the good news is they excel in most of it specially the Arabic desserts. I still can’t forget their lovely Mafroukeh and stuffed cream pastries. The Macaroons were luscious. Plenty of Indian sweets were also available. Cookies were soft and chewy.
At the end of our brunch, we ordered our hot drinks such as tea and coffee and winded the day at Na3Na3. Click here to visit the official website. Click pictures below to see them in full screen view:
