“Chinese Delights”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

If you ask for the peking duck ask them to shred the meat not slice it. If they don't know how to do it, get two forks and show them. Extra pancakes and cucumber/spring onion will be a must at some point but very charming and the tables on the terrace are great!

“Great flavours worth the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Our second visit with friends. The seating outside is fun and discreet. The staff are unobtrusive, patient and know the menu.The menu is extensive and different. The flavours reminded us of being back in Vietnam. We found it more impressive than the Hoi An in Dubai, which had a different menu. You will not be disappointed.

“Excellent food but mediocre service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

The food is amazing along with the menu selection. Situated in the Shangri La, it has indoor and outdoor seating with a beautiful view which is specially great during the winter months. The staff was friendly. We had just finished ordering and within five minutes the starters arrived. I was already impressed thinking that the service is amazing. However, in between starters and the main course, there was a gap of approximately half hour and we kept wondering whether they had forgotten our order! Summing up, food amazing, setting top notch, staff friendly, service scope for improvement.

“Great food and a great setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

I've been here on a number of occassions and I have yet to be disappointed and this visit was no exception.

Situated in the Shangri-la hotel it has a great outdoor eating terrace looking out over to the Grand Mosque.

The waiting staff are the most friendly I have come across and nothing is too much trouble for them. Smiling faces are the norm and they are not forced; completely natural.

The food again was excellently prepared and using the best quality ingredients ensures that the taste is fanstastic.

I wold recommend making the effort to visit as you will not be disappointed.

“Best food in Abu dhabi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Best food we had on our trip - try the warm (hot!) beef salad and the salt and pepper prawns! Great service and a nice setting if you sit outside
