So we were staying at ST. Regis (home of Sontaya) and we had read so many good reviews, of course we had to try it.... Ambience...our table was in the corner and not much to look at or be taken by....boring...save a few statues behind us that were shortly used for conversation pieces... Appetizers were ok...nothing great...we ordered 6 Dinner... More

My wife and I have stayed at the St. Regis, Saadiyat four times now - and each stay wouldn't have been complete without at least one visit to Sontaya. While the menu isn't the most extensive Thai selection we've seen, the food is by far the best we've ever eaten. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful - ready with... More

This was a last minute booking when looking for fine-dining in Abu Dhabi. Food, cocktail and tea were wonderful. The view is also beautiful. I would definitely return.

Unparalleled setting and atmosphere, at least as of yet in my native Abu Dhabi :). Beautiful venue with stunning views on the serene beaches of the Saadiyat island and the Persian Gulf. Haute cuisine of the Far East, mostly Thai. Tasty! 😋 The restaurant is quite upmarket, so is the pricing. However, the venue is quite worthwhile enjoying the sunset... More

At the St Regis in an absolutely beautiful setting. Not cheap but SE Asia fusion that's hard to top. Sit outside if the weather allows.

Been here twice for dinner. My conclusion; food is average and overall pricy. (gyoza was super disappointing, Fillet Seabass was average. Cozy seating, decent atmosphere but thats it. Looks nice from outside only i can say. If you stay at the hotel can give a try once unless if you dont have any other choice. For same or lesser budget... More

We ate here whilst staying at the adjoining Park Hyatt hotel. Brilliantly looked after by all the team, lovely waterside table, and a broad menu choice of lots of thai favourites.Food was beautifully presented . Bill at 1000 dirhams was a little steep, but all in all a very pleasant experience.

I travelled to the restaurant for my last night in Abu Dhabi with high expectations (it isn't cheap!), but I certainly wasn't disappointed! The satay skewers and the massamam and red duck curry mains were amazing, just the right amount of spice and flavour. But unbelievable, the best thing about the evening wasn't the food but the service, our waiter... More
