“Recommended by a friend, and absolutely brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Everything about this restaurant was pure class. The ambience was wonderful, the staff were extremely attentive, and helped with menu choices, and the food was out of this world. Definitely the best Indian dining experience we have ever had. Will definitely be going back...

“Brilliant Indian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

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.

“Excellent Indian cuisine, excellent view,excellent atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

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 small torch provided to read the menu). Staff are happy to explain the dishes and nothing was too much trouble even asking how spicy one would like the food. The food is heavenly and coming from Birmingham UK I am used to a good curry (home of the balti). The tandoori prawns were particularly memorable and the breads were perfection itself. The atmosphere was also great and if going I would take the precaution of booking an outside table.
If in Abu Dhabi and in the area give this place a try, it will not disappoint.

“Very Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

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.

“Excellent Food and Very Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

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 also frequented by the local population (always a good sign), and offers the opportunity to observe the lively night life at the Souk Qaryat Al Beri.

Prices are reasonable compered to other local restaurants. So if you like Indian food this place is well worth visiting.
