If not for the attentive service of the staff and the Location, I would not give this chain of restaurant an Average rating. This is a Japanese Restaurant and for some reason, it lacks the authenticity of the cuisine being served. Yet again, Sho Cho...More

Sho Cho Abu Dhabi cannot be compared to the same restaurant in Dubai, the location is great, nice music, but won't go back there for the food. Presentation of food is not special, portions are very small, no value for money.More

The blue-tinged lighting inside is lovely at night, but if the weather is right, dine outside over the water. Cocktails are inventive. The agedashi tofu was nice, as was the mushroom salad. Both suitable for vegans. I visited on a Thursday evening. There was a...More

We visited, found the food to be OK, portions small prices high. The Shang Palace in the Shangrila is much better for quality and price and only a 2 min walk from there.
