Excellent, great personal service and care

We were recommended to book but on arrival and during the evening only about 6 to 8 tables were taken. Food was very good though not excellent as expected. Tastes were good food was freshly prepared. They recommended an Austrian wine, we wanted French or New Zealand but followed their recommendations, wish we had stayed with our own choice. Starters... More

Had the nicest table with an excellent view across the water to the grand mosque. Basanta looked after us and had great knowledge of the menu and made some good recommendations. Nice touches like amuse bouche before our meal and a lovely strawberry and lemon drink to cleanse our palettes in between. Food was stunning, especially the Hyderabad fish curry... More

The food here tastes super fresh, very delicately cooked. In particular incredible seafood, scallops were my personal highlight and the fish curry was so perfect the fish was delicate and well seasoned. Service matches the caliber of the food. The recommendations of the waiter were on point. The if you like spicy food then ask for you dishes hot- their... More

Anyone staying in Abu Dhabi should give this restaurant a try. Reasons to go - amazing butter chicken, beautiful view of the water and Grand Mosque, excellent service and swinging chairs. My sister and I were sitting in a bench like chairs that you can slightly swing in back and forth. Pretty interesting. There are other sitting arrangements both inside... More

We were looking for a restaurant in the souk and didn't know where to go. Then we met Nigil and we had an amazing night at the restaurant. Always ask for him when u come.

Ushna was excellent! The restaurant is clean and comfortable, they offer both indoor and outdoor seating with views of the Grand Mosque, and the service is by far some of the best that I have ever seen in a restaurant. On top of all that, the food is absolutely amazing. I’m not even a huge fan of Indian food but... More

During my trip to Abu Dhabi, we stumbled across Ushna as we were strolling through the Souk at Qaryat Al Beri. This restaurant was an amazing find! The atmosphere was picturesque from both inside and out on the patio. Perfect skyline view of the Grand Mosque and the Persian Gulf channel. The waiters were really friendly and took the time...

Me and my husband visited this lovely Indian restaurant few day ago. This restaurant was suggested as one the best Indian restaurant in Abu Dhabi by consierge from Anatara Eastern Mangroves. We loved everything: our table outside with fantastic view to Masque Zayda, our waiter Basanta, who helped us to make a choice regarding the food and atmosphere. The food... More

Ushna at the Souk Qaryat Al Beri is on the water and the serving staff I found to be excellent (great job team). I had the multi seafood platter it was delicious with a kind of tandoori bite to the flavour. Husband had the chicken biryani which was also very enjoyable. We didn't have reservations but were easily accommodated by... More
