Like us, you’ve probably done countless brunches, each one more overwhelming than the last.
Fear not people, Medley at Pullman Deira City Centre has come to the rescue. Offering a more chilled out, relaxed vibe, it’s the ideal place to unwind after a stressful week at work with friends and family alike.
Rich mahogany wood tables and marble flooring throughout gives Medley a more sophisticated vibe. The lime green and white leather chairs add a colour pop to the minimalist décor, they’re also super comfy.
There’s plenty of floor space to navigate around, so no elbows in other people’s food or tripping over handbags, making this brunch a stress free experience.
Modern light fittings dotted around the restaurant generate enough wattage to tell your fruit from your veg, but no headache inducing full beam like many other brunches.
For starters, everything is in one room, making it easier to see what’s on offer before loading your plate. Our eyes were instantly drawn to the bread selection – we may have overdosed a little, but it was well worth it.
For you sushi fanatics, there’s a great choice of Maki and Nori rolls as well as a Raw Bar complete with beef carpaccio, tuna tartar and sashimi.
Pay a visit to the live cooking station for the grill and grab some sweet potato fries to accompany your chosen dish – delish!
