After our poor experience in the Shang Palace, we were hesitant to try the Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri Hotel's other East Asia dining. However restaurant manager Rashida Jumali not only listened to our complaints (and said she would pass them up) but ensured that if we came to her restaurant that we would not receive such poor food. Such an... More

Great authentic Vietnamese food cooked by Vietnamese Chefs. I've worked in Vietnam a lot and this was authentic as you can get. The only criticism is the restaurant was a bit dark.

Having informed the restaurant that it was a special night for us, we were given the best table in the place, with our table scattered with rose petals and over looking the gardens. A lovely start to our experience. The service was excellent and the food authentic and tasty. We will be going again!

Although a little quiet and sedate, this restaurant has very good Vietnamese food. As expected the cold shrimp rolls were excellent, signature beef noodle soup with mint great and all other appetisers well served and authentic. By far the best dish this night for a light meal is the sea bream served in a lotus leaf (I think), superbly seasoned... More

Dear Woodentopper, Thank you for reviewing Hoi An in such a positive light. The food is indeed tasty and freshly prepared. The chefs and team are all Vietnamese and take great pride in preparing authentic dishes. Just so you know the sea bream is steamed in a banana leaf and is favourite with many of our regular guests. The team... More

This is my second visit and the menu had changed and there was no soft shell crab, which was a shame. However, the Devil Crab Cakes and Seafood Curry Soup more than made up for that. The rotating ceiling fans and delicate lanterns provide a calm and perhaps with the right company, a very romantic atmosphere. The food comes very... More

Having visited Vietnam, this food took me back in memories.. Over delicious and rich flavored food.. great selection.. Reasonable prices. Set menu options seems good. The staff were generous enough to offer try samples of their dishes and desert. Chinese beer is also fantastic and well served

An excellent vietnamese restaurant right in the heart of abu dhabi. I recommend the lamb cutlets and noya chicken. Reserve your tables in advance and ask for an outdoor seating if the weather permits, you won't regret it.

A great place for a special dinner, especially if you like Asian food. The prices are reasonable given the food quality and portion size. Service is attentive without being overbearing and the food is really delicious. I have dined both outside on the terrace and inside, within the beautifully furnished dining room. As near to authentic Vietnamese food as you... More

This was the stand out restaurant on a recent trip to Abu Dhabi. We had a very pleasant table outside; service was friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. Highly recommended.
