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 isn't solely a restaurant but a bar. The staff and service is a different story... 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.

Had the fixed price Friday brunch menu and I have to say that the quality was good but the quantity was almost overwhelming. Something like 9 or 10 plates of food, admittedly they were small plates, but still... Highlights were the rock shrimp, the tuna sushi, and the lobster in yellow chili sauce. In addition, sat outside on a beautiful... 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 Dj playing good electronic music. I'd definitely go back if I was in the area.

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.

Told we had to be out by 9am. When booking but staff didn't seem to care and at 9.30 no one had arrived but we didn't risk it and left, which is a shame as we could have stayed. Food was ok nothing exceptional. My dish was too heavily sauced and spice. It should have been more subtle. Prawns with... More
