“Good breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Certainly a good breakfast and good service but there is smoking allowed in one part of the restaurant but as any non-smoker knows - the smell does spread

“Staff, Food, and Atmosphere - Citrus Restaurant in the Millennium Hotel, Abu Dhabi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The FIRST impression I had of Citrus was the warm and sincere welcome from Krishna, Manager, and Su, shift captain. They sustained a high level of service and friendliness throughout my long-term stay. Saima and Ma Aye contributed to my well being by being helpful and attentive. The team created by Krishna really works well together to showcase the fare created by Chef Carlo Cirone. The world is represented through the menu. I expect every visitor will find a favourite dish or two on the menu.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner. Iftar buffet or al a carte. Every meal is great and every staff member ensures each guest is satisfied. Delicious! Delightful!

The smiles and service provided have far exceeded anything I have experienced in any other establishment. Thank you Krishna, Su, Saima, and Ma Aye!

“Guaranteed to Satisfy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I'm a regular in Citrus restaurant. Dining here is a special treat. The choice is superb and the quality is excellent. The range of starters, main courses and deserts is such that the most finicky of diners will be satisfied. The biggest problem in Citrus is being able to stop eating.
The restaurant is managed day to day by Krishna. He is the most impressive restaurant manager. Somehow, Krishna manages to combine a high level of professionalism with good humor, a pleasant manner to all diners and to waiting staff and a calm but efficient demeanor. Without exception, the waiting staff are attentive without being overly fussy, warm, welcoming and always with a smile. Special mention goes to Sue....a long time staff member and exceptionally good.
A tip! If you come here, try to have time to linger. Citrus is a top class dining experience, it needs time to fully enjoy it. The staff are happy to have you linger as long as you wish.

“5 Star Restaurant at an Affordable Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

I enjoyed the hospitality and quality of the Millennium Hotel (on Khalifa Street) during my recent visit to Abu Dhabi. I found the accommodation to be excellent and an even higher caliber than most 5 start hotels in my travels throughout many European or American cities. While in Abu Dhabi I experienced a number of local restaurants which were all very good however the greatest discovery was within the Millennium on the main floor, called the Citrus. Upon entering the magnificent front foyer with gold columns and grandeur chandelier you are welcomed by an exceptionally hospitable, courteous staff. The menu presents a fresh arrangement of local and world items with reasonable prices and comfortable proportions. The presentation and flavor of each meal, was exceptional. The Citrus is a 5 star restaurant with incredible service, where everyone greets you with a smile and the chefs are world class. But it doesn’t stop with being the best, then there is the buffet including the finest IFTAR. One of the best compared to any other venue in Abu Dhabi. The selection is massive and each traditional dish is prepared to perfection. You will not be disappointed with the variety, the quality and the service at the Citrus.
Thank you to Krishna for his welcoming and sincere hospitality, to Sue for her warm and friendly smiles and to the team of chefs for their exceptional culinary skills. Mr. Ray
