It was very good experience, delicious food and staff, but prices are little bit high. Quality is good but I think it could be really cheaper. The overall experience was anyway amazing. Value for money: is worth of it !

Visited here solo in July. The food and service were great, I would particularly recommend the crispy duck for the main course. It was a bit pricey, but so is everywhere in Abu Dhabi!

Didnt like the fish sauce on papaja salad. Its fruit..meant to be sweet. Loved the little bit of papaja salad on the chicken roll plate. What an amazing peanut sauce with the rolls. Loved the panacotta leechee desert. My first panacotta desert.

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.
