A friend and I recently made contact in Abu Dhabi and went to Gao Cho for lunch. My friend had been there several times, but this was the first time for me. I was not disappointed. There are a variety of sushi combos from which to select. I enjoyed a tempura shrimp maki sushi with Jasmine green tea. Yum!

Every time we are in AD we make a point of visiting Cho Goa; it never fails to impress. It is always full of ex-pats and one of the liveliest places in AD. The food is always great. Well worth the taxi fare if you want to avoid 'stuffy' hotel restaurants.

It was dinner time when we visited during the weekend and so it was crowded! Cho Gao is ready to showcase to you their flavorful dishes from Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, China... More

The food is superb! The place decor and sitting are cozy and very warm. Good for group dining. However, since it is also a bar, I became uncomfortable when my male colleagues were chatting about how much staring they were getting from the ladies seated in the bar. They seem to be looking for a date (paid for s-x). It... More
