I came back to town and was desperate for some Sushi, a friend suggested we do dinner here. I wasn't blown away by the sushi options but I liked that the service was very thoughtful and deliberate.

This was right opposite to my work place, used to visit here after office hours. They also have happy hours (50% off) and great food servings. Have a lot of memories with this joint, plus it is a non smoking.

Cho Gao which means “rice market” in Vietnamese, combines the creativity, energy and senses of ancient Asian culture. Guests can experience an adventurous culinary journey through Asia with a menu that takes its inspiration from Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, China and Japan. The restaurant is an escape for all the senses as it blends the sights, smells, sounds and contrasting tastes of East Asian streets. From its dark wood décor reminiscent of a Hong Kong market, to its authentic cuisine, infused with the freshest herbs and spices, Cho Gao is one of Abu Dhabi’s favourite dining destinations.
