Visited here solo in July. The food and service were great, I would particularly recommend the crispy duck for the main course. It was a bit pricey, but so is everywhere in Abu Dhabi!

Didnt like the fish sauce on papaja salad. Its fruit..meant to be sweet. Loved the little bit of papaja salad on the chicken roll plate. What an amazing peanut sauce with the rolls. Loved the panacotta leechee desert. My first panacotta desert.

Decent Asian food with a relaxed atmosphere. It's also one of the few non-smoking bars in Abu Dhabi.More
