Recently tried this place. Awesome place for after work drinks. great happy hour deals and a great menu in place. Simple, light and yum food. Best part about it is its location. Right in the centre of the city. Crown plaza hotel. So works great for most people to reach. Have been there with my family as well. Would definitely... More

I probably come here once a week with my friends. It's just such a lively environment. I love all the various types of Asian food here and find myself craving it when I miss a week or two. Make sure you make a reservation. it fills up fast most nights of the week.Enjoy!

I always visit this place since it is so accessible, with smiling staffs that provide thumbs up service. It offers a variety of Pan-Asian dishes that is delightfully cooked from the heart. I cannot resist the barbequed spare ribs and mei goreng. Wasabi prawn is a super favorite too, with a sip of frozen margarita. I would love to be... More

We were recommended this place and it lived up to our expectations. The food and the service was fantastic. Was busy for a Friday night was our food came very quickly. The atmosphere was wonderful & the staff very attentive. A must visit restaurant when in Abu Dhabi.

We don't mind busy, or loud, but this place (it was a Thursday night) was screechingly loud, a table full of extremely drunk people had a huge argument next to us (at 8pm!), it... More
