Dined at the Sayad restaurant as part of a recent trip to Abu Dhabi. The restaurant itself is comfortable enough and the tables are well set out allowing privacy and a sense of space. Menu had a decent choice and not all seafood. Quality of food was beautiful and well presented which made the visit more worth while. Wine list... More

My husband and I visited Sayad Restaurant for dinner while we were in Abu Dhabi for the first time. Restaurant staff from the hostess to the manager were very friendly and accommodating. We had to move table twice due to the wind. We did however, enjoyed watching the sunset on the patio deck before moving inside of the restaurant. Food... More

The restaurant including the staff, the atmosphere and the quality of the food made our evening to a special one. The staff was very friendly and courteous! They were competent and the way of presenting and filleting the fish in front of us make it to a memorable event. Thank you! We can recommend this restaurant up to 100%.

Fabulous setting, food and service! Perfect romantic dinner. Would recommend the food and the ambiance! The Emirates Palaces is a must see and even luckier if you get to stay there.

We visited on a cool and windy day and therefore missed out on al fresco dining which I gather might make the ambiance of this restaurant since the interiors are a bit cold and bland. That said we enjoyed our experience, the food was expertly crafted mixing genuine inspiration to the odd fancy pants chef licence which, perhaps in tune... More
