I have been twice to Ushna. First time, because we heard a lot about this Indian Restaurant. A good place. Nice ambiance, good service and if you sit outside you get a very nice view of the Grand Mosque. I personally don't like the inside sitting much as the seating is very closely arranged. Food is good. Chicken Kurchan is... More

The Souk at Qaryat Al Beri in Abu Dhabi allows diners to have some of the most sumptuous views in the city while dining. Restaurants on the banks of the Al Maqta canal have an opportunity to offer something really special. At night time when the lights shimmer on the water and views of glorious Shaikh Zayed Mosque are offered... More

Indian food eaten al fresco, mid June in Dubai! Are you mad? Apparently, we are. Friendly staff who provided drinks quickly. Beers served in chilled glasses which is necessary in this heat and humidity. Starters of large deep fried prawns and potato cakes were very good and simply vanished from the platters. Mains of Cauliflower and potato curry, prawn curry... More

It was not a visit for lunch or dinner as we don't eat indian food, but we went to sit outside for a drink in the evening. My friend ordered a mojito and me I had the rose lemonade. The waitress told us that we cannot find most of the drinks they serve outside, but it is not true. I... More

My husband and I constantly rave about this restaurant to our friends. The meals are good. The service is great. The view is fantastic. The atmosphere is just right. There is nothing much more you can ask for.

Wow! Some of the most fantastic Indian food I have ever had. The service was also impeccable. I had the prawns wrapped in banana leaves for a starter. The butter chicken was the best I've had and the garlic naan was deliciously fresh. Wine list had some reasonably priced options for the region. Look forward to returning during my next... More

Service was a bit iffy at first but after a quiet word was immediately corrected....an extremely small price to pay for the outstanding meal. A leg of lamb that not only fell off the bone but was so delicately spiced and flavorful like nothing I've ever had at an Indian restaurant. Great veg biryani, interesting bindi, wonderful bread and a... More

I recently dined here with some friends. We had a drink in Shangri Las and then got the complimentary golf buggy ride across to the Restaurant - which saved us teetering along in our high heels. We had a tremendous meal. Well cooked, non greasy spicy Indian food. What a treat. Each dish was well presented and tasty. The Rogan... More

Ushna is an Indian restaurant featuring dishes from North India. Its located in the Souk, Qaryat Al Beri, (going out of Abu Dhabi, take 1st right after Maqta Bridge, proceed to 3rd roundabout). The food is slightly expensive, compared to regular Indian restaurants, but the quality more than justifies the price. Be sure to specify your desired spice level to... More
