Good Food but a little pricey

In this area there aren't too many options for restaurants so it was nice to have a few restaurant options right in the hotel. Royal Orchid has great food but it's a little pricey if you are budget conscious. We had the shrimp dumplings and they were REALLY good, very well seasoned and the filling... read more

A wonderful dinner experience. Great wine selections, appetizers, main course and most importantly service by one of the assigned server Ali. Restaurant strength would be in the varieties it offers. The freshness and taste of the dishes selected were awesome. Not a connoisseur of desserts, hence unable to comment, but certainly enjoyed the rest. Need to comment on Ali the... More

We do not have had the full board and we used to have dinner in this restaurant. It's small with nice atmosphere and the personal is really very nice. We eat there 3 times and we really enjoy it! If you like asia food, you need to go there sure!

My husband, cousin and I recently visited the Royal Orchid in Hilton, Abu Dhabi. We were pleasantly received by the courteous and friendly staff and our request for a corner table was readily granted. The restaurant atmosphere is cosy and conducive to a relaxing dining experience. Our waiter Ali was extremely helpful and polite; recommending the day's specials as well... More

I loved this restaurant but sadly will not return. Our main courses were cold- not warm- cold... When we told the manager this, our food was taken away and warmed to the extent that my prawns disintegrated and my rice was crispy and dry. Despite this, the starters were excellent and i many have forgiven this. However, when our bill... More

Visited the Royal Orchid restaurant after quite a few years. Lots of changes since our last visit but all great ones. The staff were wonderful, attentive and happy. Ambience was great and the food absolutely fresh and tasty. Social mention goes to our server Ali, who was all smiles from beginning to end. Very knowledgable on the menu, quick on... More

Nicest Chicken Sate I ever tasted, several stunning dishes and the service is absolutely charming. On only my second visit (3 weeks after the first) they clearly recognised me as they asked me if I would like to sit at the same table and commented that I had mentioned I liked scallops on my previous visit. Not cheap but few... More

I have enjoyed eating there every time I visit the restaurant. They have great food and quality standards. When you want to eat Asian food this is the place. Recommended for dinner as ambience is really nice.

Nice restaurant attached to the Hilton hotel on the Corniche. Excellent service from very attentive staff. Food very nice and well presented. However, £60 for two main courses, a bottle of water and a carafe of wine felt pricey.

I had dinner there last year and I would try it again because I loved the experience. But this time, I don't know what happened. There was a desk where the matradee would meet you but no was there for 12 minutes. Finally we walked into the restaurant where we saw guests leaving saying we could have their seats, but... More
