Jude and his staff treated us to the most wonderful gluten free Asian food we have ever had. The service was remarkable and wish that this restaurant was on our door step. Will be back as often as we can and highly recommend it to all and anyone with a gluten intolerance. Many thanks .....👍

Service is always good and we enjoy their ladies night. Get the Wasabi prawns. Their excellent. The paella is better than what we found in Spain. Their red curry dish is also very good. Vibe is good. Wish they had more more comfortable chairs!

Love this place so much. The service was wonderful and they were like family who knew what you wanted to eat without you telling them. They read your mind perfectly. Specially the handsome guy who always wearing a white tshirt and a pretty lady, Janice. I will always come to this restaurant during my visit to Abu Dhabi.
