“Guaranteed to Satisfy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

I'm a regular in Citrus restaurant. Dining here is a special treat. The choice is superb and the quality is excellent. The range of starters, main courses and deserts is such that the most finicky of diners will be satisfied. The biggest problem in Citrus is being able to stop eating.
The restaurant is managed day to day by Krishna. He is the most impressive restaurant manager. Somehow, Krishna manages to combine a high level of professionalism with good humor, a pleasant manner to all diners and to waiting staff and a calm but efficient demeanor. Without exception, the waiting staff are attentive without being overly fussy, warm, welcoming and always with a smile. Special mention goes to Sue....a long time staff member and exceptionally good.
A tip! If you come here, try to have time to linger. Citrus is a top class dining experience, it needs time to fully enjoy it. The staff are happy to have you linger as long as you wish.

“5 Star Restaurant at an Affordable Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

I enjoyed the hospitality and quality of the Millennium Hotel (on Khalifa Street) during my recent visit to Abu Dhabi. I found the accommodation to be excellent and an even higher caliber than most 5 start hotels in my travels throughout many European or American cities. While in Abu Dhabi I experienced a number of local restaurants which were all very good however the greatest discovery was within the Millennium on the main floor, called the Citrus. Upon entering the magnificent front foyer with gold columns and grandeur chandelier you are welcomed by an exceptionally hospitable, courteous staff. The menu presents a fresh arrangement of local and world items with reasonable prices and comfortable proportions. The presentation and flavor of each meal, was exceptional. The Citrus is a 5 star restaurant with incredible service, where everyone greets you with a smile and the chefs are world class. But it doesn’t stop with being the best, then there is the buffet including the finest IFTAR. One of the best compared to any other venue in Abu Dhabi. The selection is massive and each traditional dish is prepared to perfection. You will not be disappointed with the variety, the quality and the service at the Citrus.
Thank you to Krishna for his welcoming and sincere hospitality, to Sue for her warm and friendly smiles and to the team of chefs for their exceptional culinary skills. Mr. Ray

“So Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

While in Abu Dhabi on business, I had the incredibly good fortune to pay a visit to the Citrus Restaurant in the Millennium Hotel conveniently located in a central area of the city. My colleagues and I enjoyed the traditional Iftar buffet which signals the breaking of the fast at sundown during the holy month of Ramadan. I have long been a lover of Arabic cuisine, and the choices offered at the Citrus exceeded my expectations. We took our time as we wound our way through the Arabic specialties including delicious soups, salads, schwarma, meats and deserts. Flavours are fresh, well seasoned and beautifully prepared, and i particularly enjoyed the lamb. Service was prompt, friendly and professional. This is one restaurant I can't wait to visit again.

“VIP Treatment And Delicious Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Dining at Citrus begins with the warm welcome. Citrus staff and management go the full nine yards to ensure each diner or party receives exemplary service. As for the food, it is of the best quality and they provide a diverse and delicious buffet. Middle Eastern or European cuisine are well presented and plentiful. If in Abu Dhabi, this is a stop not to be missed.
