I visited the Ushna resturant by chance having walked past along the board walk, between the Shangila and the Fairmont hotels, the previous evening and attracted by the aroma of spices. I must say the food, portion size, complimentary wifi, fantastic location and very attentive staff make this a winning formula. Visit this resturant and you will not be disappointed.

This is a lovely Indian restaurant in the Qaryat Al Bari Souk just across the water from the grand mosque. We went for dinner. The place was crowded but we were offered a table outside which was just perfect bearing in mind the view of the Grand mosque illuminated as it is at night. The service was attentive (which a...

Restaurant looked spotless. Staff attentive and efficient. Menu explained. We sat outside and they even supplied torches to help me read the Menu. Good selection on offer. Enjoyed the food so much, went back a second time. They even spice the food to your personal taste. Reasonably priced. Would eat their again.

Ushna serves excellent Indian cuisine in a lovely location overlooking the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque (ask for a table outside). As well as the food and location, the other thing that makes this a very good place to eat is the attentive service (staff will explain the different dishes and constantly ensure your needs are being attended to). Ushna is... More

We went with another couple on their recommendation for my birthday. Living in France I really miss Indian food. We were not disappointed . Fresh, tasty food cooked to order. We even got bhajis and samosas that were no longer on the menu!! Delicious wines - plenty of choice, too. Booking is a must. The views over the bridge, water... More

I had dinner at this restaurant on my birthday this year while staying at the Traders Hotel in Abu Dhabi. This restaurant is one of many located in the souk on the Shangri-la property which houses both the Traders hotel as well as its sister The shangri - la.

Fantastic restaurant in the souk across from the Grand Mosque. Beautiful setting and views, great service and reasonably priced. The food was the best we had all holiday - freshly cooked breads (the best we've ever had); amazing curries; great grills. Also we enjoyed the fact, that unlike the hotel restaurants that seemed to be the focus of a lot... More

This place is in the small souk between the Fairmont and the Shangri-La hotels. Not a huge menu (which I like) but what there is, is excellent, packed with flavour, and a good portion size. Add to this first class service and the view over to the grand mosque and I highly recommend it.

Ushna's Indian restaurant was recommended to me before our trip to UAE, and we were not disappointed. it's in a lovely setting on the edge of the sea, and with magical views across to the illuminated grand mosque. the food was excellent, and although quite expensive was worth every dirham! great service, tasty food, and beautiful setting

Ushna is one of the best restaurants we have visited. The food and the view are sublime, but it is the staffs attention to detail that makes it so special. From remembering our choice in wine to welding us by name, they make you feel very special. Ann is just amazing!,
