This is one of our favourite restaurants in all of Abu Dhabi!
Claypot to-fu (Good, but not spectacular - Especially when our taste buds are now so acute with the excellent to-fu we had in China recently) and ... Stir-fried beef with bitter melon in black bean and garlic sauce (80 AED - Beef was soooooo tender!). Seems that we had to call ahead to get the kitchen to prepare the Yong Tau-fu we so craved (and enjoyed on a previous visit here), we shall next time!
Shrimp with XO Sauce, 78 AED. I didn't find the XO sauce tangy enough, and bbG found the prawns (which I thought were really plump!) to be of the frozen and thawed variety. I couldn't tell, heh heh! Other items we had was steamed rice (10 AED per person), and jasmine tea (28 AED for the two of us).
Verdict ... the food is good, in fact very good by Abu Dhabi standards, but what sets this restaurant apart is the Customer Service ... quite possibly the best in Abu Dhabi! Emily, you are a star :-)
ps - Yes, you can find special buy-one-get-one-free offers in The Entertainer for Shang Palace :-)
