Great food and no smoking so the lack of smokes makes it one of the best places in Abu Dhabi perfect as well for a couple of cocktails or beers

Good variety of Asian food. Happy hours from 4-7 are great. Food is priced at 50%. Design is nice as well. This place is always full because it has a nice bar area as well.

Found this interesting Thai fusion restaurant in the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Abu Dhabi. Excellent food lively vibe, boisterous but pleasant, Not the place for a quiet romantic meal. Very popular with the ex-pat community. Very busy but service was excellent. Fairly expensive but then so is Abu Dhabi.

First time in this lounge/restaurant. It was busy and atmosphere was great. Every time when we asked for drinks It took a long time to be delivered. Service was friendly... Food was ok, we had a few snacks from the menu, I found it overpriced for the portions size, quality was fine.

Was staying in The Crowne Plaza and used this restaurant for one of our evening meals rather than go out. The meal was excellent and the value was good as well. Staff were good and service was quick and efficient. The Asian influences were some of the best flavours I have had for a long time. Well worth the visit... More
