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.

The word 'Cho Gao' does mean 'rice market' in Vietnamese.
I visited this premises to celebrate the birthday of my friend.
I was warmly welcomed there.
I highly recommend the families to try 'Cho Gao'.
Thanks to the crew.

Cho Gao was always one of our favourites while living in Abu Dhabi, and the crispy duck pancakes are always worth a return visit.

Part of the appeal was the non smoking environment but the smiling staff who always go the extra mile have often made our visits more memorable.

Take our visit this Friday when we turned up out of the blue having driven over from Dubai as part of a day trip. While they were only technically serving brunch Thin the manager was kind enough to prepare one full crispy duck (delicious as ever) and their excellent Beef Rendang, melt in the mouth beef in a spicy sauce.

As per previous visits we left stuffed to the gills and freshly impressed at the service, the opposite of the ‘computer says no’ that you get at many places where they can only follow the script.

Top marks.

I visited Cho Gao on a date and was met with warm service from Alyssa and the restaurant manager. The selection of sushi for the sushi buffet was nice as well.

As we all know December 2 is the National Day in UAE and that’s a special day for me. I wanted to just be with my close friends and family and I always love Cho Gao’s sushi. So, I decided to host my little celebration with them. Sonai and Tin are always amazing. Tin especially as everytime I come with my friends she always recognizes me and asks how’s everything. I couldn’t thank them more as they always give 101% of the service that’s expected from them. Thank you so much to Sonai and Tin for making my night amazing. ☺️
