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 regularly visit this Restaurant and can say many positive things about it,
Staff are very attentive, personalilsed service and can even remember preferences of my friends and I.
Food consistently tasty, good portions, special menu items explained to customers
Plenty of choice,
It can get very noisy at weekends but thats due to it being popular, generally great ambience

Went here for a dinner with some colleagues. Food was excellent, quite large portions, nicely spiced. Service was friendly and attentive. Drinks were averagely priced for Abu Dhabi but although I did not try the mocktails looked very watery - one of my colleagues also said they were also very sweet and sickly - think Benylin cough mixture - and also expensive for what they are.

A good atmosphere prevails and it is not difficult to see why this restaurant is so highly rated.
