We were staying at the Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri and as others have said this restaurant is a very convenient place to eat. But it's more than that - we were in Abu Dhabi celebrating my wife's birthday with a couple of friends and this was the chosen final night meal for our week long trip. It was a great... More

The food is amazing, the staff are friendly and graceful. Go here Everytime we go to Dubai. Worth the effort as its a little out of town centre.

Very nice setting and excellent service. Food was delicious. However, I didn't have a starter - only a main, as I have quite a small appetite. Usually a main and starter is too much for me to finish. I had Wok fried scallops, which although wonderfully tasty, was such a tiny portion - and not cheap - I think it... More

Our first meal here 2 years ago was stunning. So going back this time with my daughter and a friend, we were expecting a lot. It was fine but definitely not stunning in the case of the sunset menu. No surprises in the food, and it could have come from any basic Vietnamese cafe. It seemed expensive for what was... More

Went there last week , the waiters where clueless about both the food menu and the wine , food was not impressive at all . I got extremely frustrated when the main course started to arrive while the starters are still on the table ,, never again will go there ,,, I will spend my money somewhere else👍

There was little atmosphere as restaurant very quiet, we were then served so quickly we really didn't get chance to enjoy our meal. The food seems to have gone downhill since our last visit, and dishes were served straight from the fridge, so they had little or no flavour. Lamb chops were the only high light , but everything else... More

Visited on a Friday night and amazingly for Abu Dhabi all tables were full and there was a nice buzz to the restaurant. Admittedly it is small but it was nice to visit somewhere with other diners in! Would recommend to book just in case. Waiting staff were unwaivingly polite and attentive and the food was fantastic. Amazing flavours and... More
