“Good food but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

For a person living in the UAE for the past 9 years, I consider Ushna, a very good place to eat indian food, the varieties are there, the taste is good and the seating is very nice. I do recommend the Mutton Biriyani and the butter chicken Massala

During the cooler days, it has a nice outdoor view of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque.

Top 3 in Abu Dhabi after Indigo then Indian Palace.

“Good food and ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

A nice indian restaurant with good service and ambiance. It is alreadymy second time here and i enjoyed both. The restaurant is situated in a small new souq, where you can have a nice shopping walk. Try the duck masala.

“Classy Indian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Ushna is a classy Indian restaurant in every respect. The restaurant is located inside the Souq next to the Shangri La which is lovely itself. The location within the Souq, setting and fixtures of Ushna are great. it was too hot at this time of year to sit outside ,but we still had a lovely outlook with a view of the Grand Mosque. The service was very efficient but also unobtrusive, all the waiters were really well presented and friendly. The food was superb! Everything we tried we loved, our mains of lamb curry and my husband's ever favourite butter chicken were in the best ever category!! Ushna also provide lovely little extras - chippatis with a range of accompaniments to start, warm hand towels and a small chocolate sweet at the end. They also serve a range of beverages, we enjoyed a very good bottle of wine. All in all a great dining experience.
