Asian

A modern Southeast Asian restaurant with an open kitchen, Li Jiang whets the appetite for all things spicy, authentic and Oriental. Meaning “beautiful river” in Chinese, Li Jiang reflects resort’s location on the Grand Canal. An open kitchen, where diners can watch the chefs create homemade dim sum as well as authentic rice and noodle dishes is the centerpiece of our modern Southeast Asian restaurant. An outdoor terrace tucked away in the olive grove affords spectacular views of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

    The service at Li Jiang was very good, but since we ordered a special all-you-can-eat menu, I would have appreciated a few more checks for drink refills. The sushi was absolutely terrible. 1/10 do not recommend. The chicken katsu was juicy but basically flavorless and the ramen was also lacking seasoning. The ambiance was nice and the shisha was the best on our trip.

    There was a nice wine list with nice wines at reasonable prices and a selection of Asian beers. However, the food, in our opinion was very tasteful. All 3 of us loved it!!! We had the soft shell crab starter, seafood spring roll starter, wasabi prawn starter, half crispy duck, miso soup and laksa soup (this was the highlight for me). We could not find anything wrong with anything we had. We would go back. It was a very quiet restaurant but we like that so not a problem for us. We sat in a booth that had beautiful crafter wood separators.

    Went for the sushi and sake night and it was very underwhelming. It's one set plate of basic sushi followed by non-sushi items like Ramen and katsu. There was no information in the sake, and no choice. Overall a very mediocre experience.

    We had dinner in Li Jiang for my wife's birthday. Food was amazing from starters, mains all the way to deserts. Good selection of cocktails and extensive wine list. Service was very good, not intrusive but always there when we needed something. Nice ambiance with a view to a Grand Mosque from the terrace. We'll definitely come again...

    On entering the fabulous hotel we had high expectations and we weren’t disappointed. The restaurant is lovely with open windows to the chefs. We went on ladies night and had free bubbles all meal which was great. But. Then the food arrived and it was delicious. The wasabi prawns for starters were gorgeous and large. I had green curry again delicious, one daughter had the scallops which she said were lovely but wished she’d had the curry. Our other daughter had the slow cooked lamb which she could cut with a spoon - hubby was jealous he only had noodles although again said they were lovely but the lamb was fab. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient too. Would definitely recommend

    We have been to this restaurant before but in the summer when it was too hot to sit outside . We booked outside as it’s a pleasant temperature now it’s winter . We came with 2 friends ( couple ) The outside area is beautiful with an amazing view of The Mosque which is very pretty at night light up but it is more of a bar/ lounge area rather than dining . Not many tables mostly sofa areas . The service was very slow to start with as in waiting for our order to be taken so my husband had a quiet word with one of the waiters as we did not want this to be the theme for the evening . The food was very tasty ! And the service level picked up however the music was like a disco !!!!! Not like a sophisticated restaurant , fine if you just want to lounge and n the sofas and drink but not if you are out for dinner with friends and want to chat . We would eat there again but as the food was worth it yum yum !

    I’ve had better tasting food from takeaways. The quality of food has definitely come down. It used to be pretty good, however I was very disappointed on my last visit. Also the service has to improve tremendously. The girl serving us was very apologetic and she tried her hardest to do her best. The restaurant needs more staff as they couldn’t handle the crowds and we were kept waiting with the used plates in front of us for over 15 mins. For the prices charged, its definitely not worth it.

    We had a great night at Li Jiang for my husband's birthday. I had mentioned the occasion when we reserved on OpenTable and even if we didn't mention it while we were at the restaurant, the staff brought us a lovely chocolate cake with candle when we were finished our meal. It really shows true attention to detail and great service that they picked up on that from the reservation note! They also had a ton of vegan options or dishes that could be customized to be vegan. It's nice not to be limited to the same selection or be forced to order side dishes. We'll definitely be back!

    I have travelled the world, but must admit this was the best resturant. We were celebrating my wife’s Birthday with the kids who all summarised the experience as priceless. Chef Lee and his team were awesome and took time to meet and connect with the guests.....the hospitaility was amazing with the Food and Beverage Manager, Mr. Hussain, who also engaged to ensure everything was up to Standard. If you want personalised service, this this is definitely the place to be !!!!!! We have tempura crab, duck with pancake rolls, seared tuna, Tom yam soup, Thai green curry, wok fried lamb, black pepper beef, vegetarian pad Thai and vegetable egg fried rice. The dessert was a special creation that evening made up of Thai rice and coconut ice cream. The wine was Red Matua Pinot Noir. So if you’re ever in Abu Dhabi, don’t miss this place, it’s awesome, a place which leave you with lasting memories !!!!

    Although it was Friday evening, the place was not crowded - around 9.30 pm. It is an asian restaurant where you may find thai cuisine as well. They offer signature dishes which are recommended to try.
