Nice food but at a price!

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 went to Royal Orchid for my Asian food fix and enjoyed the charming service of Ali who gave me information on current events in Abu Dhabi. I ate delicious broccoli and almond dumplings, followed by chicken with oyster sauce, mushroom and bamboo shoots accompanied by stir fried vegetable noodles washed down with a Singha beer.

It is my favourite restaurant in Abu Dhabi and I use to go there every week. The food is excellent and the waiters very kind and professionals. I would like to mention especially the waiter Ali who is really excellent. I highly recommend the restaurant. Alex

Five of us ate dinner here on a Friday night in January. We booked in advance for 7 PM, which was good, as the place was packed. Nice environment, very good service. Most of our dishes were decent (not great). The cashew chicken was good, as was the shrimp dish, and spring rolls. Not so good was a Pad Thai... More

Had our Christmas dinner at the Royal Orchid, and it was divine! Excellent food, course after course, topped off with a fabulous creme brule. Our waiter, Basit Ali, was most courteous. A night to remember!

Didn't book but was pretty full I guess arriving there pretty late on a Friday, we were seated immediately. The nibbles they provided at the begging were great (hot roasted peanuts and some sort of cabbage dish). We were not overly hungry and so divided our starter and main course between us. We had the mixed assortment of dumplings for... More
