My wife and I went there yesterday for a meal after a recommendation from our son. We were seated outside the Souk and had a lovely view of the gulf and the Central Mosque, which at night is even more stunning than during the day. The waiter, Basanta (I think) was very attentive and friendly - our order was placed.... More

We went there one evening not knowing what to expect, especially as we are vegetarians. The food did not disappoint and in fact we found it very tasty and different flavours to most places we had eaten at previously. The portions were very good and the service friendly and of a high standard. The location is great too.. sit outside... More

From hearing about Ushna over the past five years in Abu Dhabi, we finally managed to try. Food was disappointing- everything tasted the same, no proper flavour differentiation in between the dishes. Service was OK, but we won't be back as the food wasn't good quality.

Ushna was the best Indian restaurant in Abu Dhabi by far, then the head chef hopped across the water to the Punjab Grill. Last time we visited Ushna we were not aware of this. We ordered the same dishes we had loved previously and they were nowhere near the standard we had come to expect. It's very sad as the... More

Incredibly disappointed based on expectation from other reviewers. We has chicken korma, lamb rogan josh and saag paneer. All of them were bad. The sauces were tasteless. Literally the Korma could have been a few pieces of chicken in a soup from a can. The saag was watery and too salty. Looking for positives the rice was excellent and the... More

We went for a dinner based on the many excellent reviews, however it didn't "float" my boat. Don't get me wrong, the food was nice, the service was good but the prices are a bit on the steep side for what it was. Personally...I wouldn't go back.

I"m not a fan of spicy and they always make sure to serve the food just right. Super yummy, great outdoor seating, and service is speedy.

Upon entering Ushna, we noticed the calm atmosphere and nice bar. The bartender opened a fresh bottle of wine for us, upon request, and it was lovely! There were rooms to the side of the front bar area with what looked like rockers to enjoy a bit of a swing before dinner. There was also a sitting area beside the... More
