This visit included a birthday celebration, happy hour yummies (Bombay Cosmo) and AMAZING Gluten Free dinner options: satay and Thai salad. Our waiter, Albert, was again wonderful, helpful and remembered us. I love this place mostly b/c it's NON-SMOKING environment. More restaurants in the UAE should copy this model. It's lively and filled with other happy patrons.

Also had Cahsew chicken..extra spicy! Only issues sometimes can be getting tables, they have a seating area as you enter but wait can be annoyingly long.But... More

I used to go there at least once a month when I lived in Abu Dhabi. The service was always great and the food even better. I usually had the fish of the day or the red duck curry. My favorite drink was the Cho Gao Cinto - a cocktail made with rum, lemongrass and ginger. And you should try... More

Chef Sontaya is one of the best Chef in town. He proved with his menu and make us felt that transported to Thailand without flying. We will definitely come back again and will recommend to our friends. Keep it up!!
