Great food Great service

Despite being in very busy area in Abu Dhabi (Hamdan Street), this restaurant is on my top list. Great food selection and I appreciate the great effort from their staff - especially when it's crowded. Nice cozy Chinese/Asian theme.

So we went to this restaurant and the ambience was great. Then it came to the food; the food wasn't that great, and I mean the main courses. The appetizers were great! I'd rather have more appetizers than the main course. The one seafood selection really smelled so we didn't really want to eat it. Also, this place is very... More

Massaman curry and an ice cold Guinness, what more could you want. Well cooked food, nicely spiced, well presented. Just what was required before a 7 hour flight home. it went down well.

Great spot for drinks and bites, warm vibe. I can't wait for Cho Chill sounds like a cool addition to the concept post ramadan. The service team are welcoming and accommodating. Always look forward to spending time there with friends and family. Would be nice to have longer service hours in the rest of the year it's a cool spot.

It's a good Asian restrant. They have one of the largest menu I've ever seen. Tasty food. The whole atmosphere looks like a bar, it's not a fine dining restrant. Everything is wooden tables and chairs and walls. It's giving warm, friendly feeling. They have a DJ and small lounge area were you can have a drink with your friends.... More
