“Not as good as it was”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner with my family. The kids meal was nice. Food was not as great as I remember as I didn't dine in TGI Fridays in ages. Chicken portion was extremely small. Mashed potato just on. No major complain but nothing outstanding as well.

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

This is a TGI's by name only. No decent food or drink and the staff have no idea of the TGI concept. Save your money and go elsewhere as this is not up to the regular TGI standard. Boring.

“Their goal is mediocrity”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

With a chain, their goal is to be the same. They have cooks not chefs who are allowed to create & make amazing food.

This is mediocre food, nothing more, nothing less. If you want uninspired chain food all the Fridays are the same all over the world. Just please don't think this is an example of good American food. It's not.

If you need basic, boring, & easy go here. I strongly suggest that you find better places to eat in Abu Dhabi though.
