Description: Cho Gao which means “rice market” in Vietnamese, combines the creativity, energy and senses of ancient Asian culture. Guests can experience an adventurous culinary journey through Asia with a menu that takes its inspiration from Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, China and Japan. The restaurant is an escape for all the senses as it blends the sights, smells, sounds and contrasting tastes of East Asian streets. From its dark wood décor reminiscent of a Hong Kong market, to its authentic cuisine, infused with the freshest herbs and spices, Cho Gao is one of Abu Dhabi’s favourite dining destinations.

I stayed in the Crown Plaza hotel for more than one month and ate at this fantastic restaurant many times. I always found the service to be just right and I like the ambiance. The wasabi prawns are out of this world and the duck salad is very special. I go back frequently with the family and everyone really enjoys it.

The food portion is really small but there is happy hour promotion from 5 pm to 7 pm which you can u pay one get two for any beers.
May ask for reservation to get private nice place. Try to go early. And we are pleased as even given with voucher of AED 75 for AED 350 spent.
It is the one and only lounge which is a non smoking lounge in AD. Will go again and love the atmosphere and environment so much.

The food at Cho Gao is one of the best far eastern you would find in Abu Dhabi, the portion size except for the side dishes is fine and can be shared by two people however if you plan on having rice make sure you order a bowl per person .

The cashew chicken is a delight with mild spices and a sweet flavor and the two recommend starters for the venue are Wasabi Prawns which hit you with the horse radish sting instantly and chicken dim sums which are pretty much bland however flavorful and enjoyable with the sauces.
