Dubai: The first thing that strikes you as you walk into the Metro restaurant at Deira’s Hues Boutique Hotel is the cool ambience of the place.
Modern and contemporary in look, the frosty white-coloured walls and the black and white furniture exude a sense of serenity. The soft lighting adds to the tranquil mood.
Accompanied by a colleague, I was there to check out the all-day buffet. A staff told me that Metro has the ‘all-day dining’ tag because it’s open from 6.30am until 10pm and offers buffet breakfast, lunch, dinner and also a la carte options for those who are buffet-shy. The buffet menu changes daily.

So it was no surprise to find items such as paella, medallions of salmon in saffron gravy, chicken with tarragon sauce and Greek salad, besides varieties from the Levantine areas.
