“Are there other restaurants in AUH?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I always eat here when I am in Abu Dhabi. Great food and great staff. Great setting with a view of the beautiful furniture store. Love THE One Junior for my kids.

“Simply good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

It is a bit quirky to have a serious restaurant in a furniture shop. This is not just a cafe, although it is good for coffee and cakes. I have been to this cafe/restaurant dozens of times. I have also ordered the cakes for take-away for office celebrations. I used to go when it was located out of town, so I have been a regular for the last 13 years.
Open early enough to have breakfast at the weekends, this is will not disappoint any family or friends however picky. They can have simple food (soups and roasts) or complex dishes (with spices and unusual ingredients). Vegetarians are well catered for.
My favourites on the menu are the salads or pastas wher eyou choose your own ingredients. Portions are very generous and prices are good value.
I see in the reviews that someone wants a smoking section, well this place used to have one a few years ago and it was really not nice at all in the furniture shop or in the restaurants. So the smoking section closed, thank goodness and it is all non-smoking tehse days!
Service is usually friendly but a little slow (speed of service is much like the rest of Abu Dhabi really).
There is a busy atmosphere and sometimes it can be a bit noisy - and even difficult to book a table.
I am looking forward to their Iftar again this year as it is usually well priced and a delicious buffet. Be sure to book a table for Iftar!

“Good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

I ordered the steak and swiss panini (essentially a glorified cheese steak) and it well exceeded my expectations. The restaurant had a cozy and inviting atmosphere which I wasn't expecting from an eatery located inside of a furniture store. The chairs were heavenly to sit on, and the service was fine. I look forward to going back in order to try more of their extensive menu!

“Nice place for soup, sandwiches, and salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The one has good food and great bread with lots of healthy/tasty options. I would prefer to go there in the hot season since it is inside the store with no natural light.

“tough place to find but great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

if you dont know someone who knows where this place is it will be tough to find. the food was great . .. the service was spot on . .. the only draw back to the place is the parking, good luck finding one a spot.
