“Exceptional Cusine and Service”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Exceptional service and the many Asian themes are presented with wonderful innovation. Pricing was high but worthy of what you received -- loved the constant attention to detail. A great place for a "date night" in Abu Dhabi! Is truly a top rated restaurant in Abu Dhabi -- a must if you enjoy Asian cuisine.

“nice view, good service but average food”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This restaurant has an amazing view but the food didnt match its status. Its expensive and the food is average although they are proud to say they have a very good chef from Singapore, personally I do not rate him. The service is good and the staff are lovely

“One of the best dining experiences ever. Great food, amazing service!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

What can I say about this place? As the review title suggests, this was one of the best dining experiences of my life!

We were staying at the hotel and booked a table via the concierge service. Upon arrival to the 63rd Floor restaurant, we were greeted by staff as soon as we exited the lift and then shown to our table. Our waiter Hiren was introduced and things only got better from there. He set the tone for what was to be an excellent evening. He was very professional, always on hand for any questions but never intrusive in any way. I mention him by name as his service throughout the evening was exceptional and made the experience even more special.

Our table offered superb views of the Corniche on one side and the Abu Dhabi Mall on the other. Upon being seated we were offered the menus and advised that the Sommelier would be available should we have any questions relating to the wine. When you open the large food menus, they light up; the wine list is provided via an iPad. The Sommelier offered assistance and explained that whilst there are over 1,000 different types, not every single bottle may be available. With such a huge choice it was difficult to make a decision but we eventually opted for a bottle of light French red. Upon ordering our main courses, the staff checked our wine order and suggested an alternative to better compliment the food choices. The staff really demonstrated their knowledge and this was another example of the fantastic service. A selection of breads was offered prior to the starter being served and a small portion of nuts was also served to the table.

I ordered the hot and sour seafood soup as a starter which is served with just the fish in a bowl and then liquid poured over the top, at your table. The soup was spicy and rich with flavour. For the main courses, we ordered chicken and beef from the speciality wok menu. Both dishes were great, full of flavour and the beef cooked exactly as ordered. The portions were sufficient and there was little room for desert. I thought to order a sorbet but unfortunately a particular flavour was unavailable that evening. This did not distract from the experience as I was rather full anyway. A small portion of sweet snacks were also provided at the end, which was a nice surprise.

The restaurant atmosphere was great, it was relatively busy with a number of tables occupied but it was far from loud. There is low lighting and a lot of space between tables which created the feeling of dining in private despite being in a big restaurant – the perfect ambience. As mentioned before, Hiren was an excellent waiter and his services are a credit to the restaurant.

The restaurant is not the cheapest, but then you don’t expect it to be. This is fine dining, encompassing exceptional service and fantastic views! I would recommend it to anyone visiting Abu Dhabi and looking for that something special.
