The Yas Hotel’s restaurants are often lambasted for their sterile interiors and flat atmosphere, but Origins manages to avoid these traps altogether. The buffet restaurant has plenty of bustle and is lively, while the superb spread is décor enough as far as we’re concerned. A nice balance is struck between the international and Arabic dishes, and while plenty of the predictable offerings make an appearance – mezze, meat and rice dishes – there are plenty of more unusual dishes to keep your meal interesting. The salads are inventive and kept ultra-fresh (you won’t find any soggy fatoush here) while a wide range of main courses will suit all tastes: spicy fish, creamy chicken and all sorts of fresh and healthy vegetarian options are laid out. Origins doesn’t put on a huge spread by any stretch of the imagination, but the space is well-used and the preparation thoughtful. Just make sure you leave room for some chocolate fountain fun at the end of your meal.
