Having lived in Germany for 4 years I have to admit that we took advantage of the American chains while in the Emirates for 5 days. They got old quickly and I was glad we found al Mayass. we made a reservation for 5 and decided to split a mixture of 7 hot and cold mezze dishes and two grilled meat main dishes. The waiter offered to make a selection for us but we made our own selections, not an easy task. He did talk us into a few extras but I am glad that he did. Our menu was more than enough food for 5 people and based on prior dining experiences in Abu Dhabi I thought the check was going to be pretty expensive. To my surprise the check ended up being about $25 per person including service (water only)...one of the best dining deals we found on our trip. One tip, make sure you inform your taxi driver that the restaurant is in the Sheraton Corniche, there are two Sheraton's in the city. We made it the first time with a little bit of guesswork. The restaurants website looks great, but there is no menu, which I selfishly want to view now so I can remember the dishes we had.
