The food was reasonably good. However the food was extemely late. Fortunately, there was a large window through which we could see how hard the chefs weren't working. After an hour we received what was an suprisingly small meal for the amount of money we paid. We left the restaurant still hungry. My garlic Nnan was never made until I... More

Amazing food, really good service. Place is a bit pricy but totally worthy for special occasions. I personally love their sofa area the most! It's really comfortable and you have your privacy. I had different things from the menu there and I was never disappointed. Portions are quite substantial and there are vegetarian options available on the menu. Enjoy!

Excellent Service and friendly staff and the quality of food. However, i suggest that they should add on to some variety in selection of the A-La Carte Buffet on Tuesday night. The Food Menu seems to be very limited if compared to the House Beverages. Soups no variety, also the starters are very limited and missing the king of seafood... More

Great flavours. Third visit. Fairly quiet but nice and relaxing, with table overlooking the pool. Felt very full at end.

Maybe it's common in Abu Dhabi, but this place was the most expensive basic Indian food I've ever had. I had Chicken Tikka, sauce was great, chicken was very strange, rubbery texture. Grateful I don't live here.

I had dinner tonight with my friends and it was memorable. Food was very tasty food and reasonable price. Garlic butter naan and butter chicken was amazing and waiter Raji and hostess sanjita was very friendly and attentive. I can't forget One of the best desert called coolfee and I will be back for sure again.

This Restaurant is located in the Rotana at Yas. So the price is more touristy than going out to other locations within Abu Dhabi vicinity. However, the staff is very caring and the food is really great and authentic.
