Pan Asian cuisine in the heart of the city - Cho Gao at Crowne Plaza, Abu Dhabi
The crowd, meanwhile gathers momentum and by 9, the restaurant is 90% full. There is a genuine vibe - it feels like a real Thursday night! The service, on another note, is quick and no fuss, with staff very active in the restaurant. I glance to the lounge area and I see that it is quite busy too. I have actually tried the lounge before - a decent bar bites selection and an option of seating on the comfy lounge chairs and sofas make this a desirable option too.
As my daughter and I are finishing up, DJ Hysteria, the new resident DJ who takes Cho Gao into its weekend evening concept, Cho Chill. You will enjoy his beats - The music goes up tempo, the volume picks up and the ambiance becomes even cooler. New branding, a new menu and you are in for a different evening it seems.
Overall, I really liked my Cho Gao experience. In offering a variety of Asian dishes, there is something for everyone, but it is more than a place where you come for food - you come here for the setting, atmosphere and ambiance. It is festive and lively. A very good night out.
