Great Place, Great Food, Great Service

The restaurant was classy, the food was excellent and the service was just as excellent. Basanta took great care of us and made sure that we had any and everything that we wanted. He allowed us to order items that were not on the menu. I will be going back again.

As a vegetarian I eat a lot of Indian foods, this was by far the best Indian food I have ever experienced. The staff are well trained and friendly, they are happy to offer recommendations on the menu or just to chat in general. This restaurant was so good we went back the following day for lunch which didn't disappoint!

An outstanding restaurant. Can't fault the service or the food . With limited spice options in the UAE . This restaurant really satisfied the craving. Ordered a 5 on the heat scale ( 1 been mild and 5 very hot ) Definitely hit the spot . Our waiter Basanta added to our great night out .

The ambience was inviting and intriguing. The restaurant overlooked the creek with a splendid view of the mosque and the Ritz Carlton which was really picturesque. The service was warm and friendly, with enthusiastic and accommodating personnel. We met the Manager and the chief Chef whom we complimented on his culinary accomplishments. We were especially impressed with the coconut prawn... More

Lovely fine dining restaurant with delicious food, beautiful views of the Grand Mosque and outstanding service. With special recognition to Basanta, who always has a smile on his face and constantly delivers top class service, the best service I have received in Abu Dhabi by far. We look forward to our next visit.

Ushna overwhelmed us with their personal service and excellent hospitality. We did not just have one person waiting on us, but a well-coordinated team of people! Even the manager visited our table, and surprised us with a complimentary dessert at the end of our meal. Even a complimentary photograph was thrown in! It was really an experience to remember!

Lovely restaurant. The hubby wasn't dressed appropriately (came in shorts and apparently they have a dress code) but they still accommodated us. Excellent food. Great ambience. And customer service is top notch! And enjoyable evening overall. If we are in the area again will gladly go back.

Nicely set indian restaurant with outstanding ambiance. Food was equally impressive though the menu is small whatever is offered is done and presented well. Try this place if you would like to enjoy Indian food in a royal set up.
