Loved the atmosphere, service, food, and staff. Sushi was terrific and they had wonderful selections. Showed up for their “free flowing Pro Seco/margarita” evening which was great! We will definitely be dining here again!

The sushi buffet is an all time favorite. Good selection of various japanese food. If you fancy a wine or cocktail with it, definetly go for the “beverage included option”, otherwise you will find your bill pretty high!

We decided to try our first (2018) Japanese buffet dinner at Sho Cho Abu Dhabi. Good ambiance, impressive service, many choices of food and reasonable price. Our favorite were beef teriyaki, tempura, sushi and green tea pannacotta. Definitely will come back again.
