Amazing service all over the place. The buffet is superior to anywhere else in UAE. Great Chinese and Lebanese restaurants too. A good choice to stay if you are visiting Abu Dhabi either for short stay or on business.

Once again the staff at the Shangri-La Hotel excelled themselves. The Pool bar staff were thoughtful, friendly and generous, the Beach staff attentive and the Horizon Club Lounge girls were so welcoming, nothing was too much for any of them. Another excellent stay.

We visited the Shangri-la buffet on 4th November for a special family birthday and although it's a little on the expensive side, it was worth every penny. With everything from smoked salmon and sushi to live cooking stations for steaks, prawns, chicken etc. An enormous salad bar, a mountain of cheeses and pastries to die for. Everything cooked to perfection...
