Cooking at Ushna has always been an inspirational affair. Fresh ingredients, high quality produce,consistency in every action and an open attitude to cooking are the four virtues that form the soul of the Ushna Kitchen.Our menu encompasses regional Indian classics presented in contemporary style that are best paired with wines or with one of the many Ushna Signature cocktails. Ushna has been awarded the coveted ‘Time Out Best Indian Restaurant Award’ for 4 consecutive years, the ‘What’s On Favorite Indian Restaurant’ and has been the recipient of three consecutive ‘Gourmet Abu Dhabi’ awards too - testament of its consistency in delivering excellent dining experiences over the years.

During our one-month stay at the Fairmont, this was the best restaurant we found in the area (taken if you like Indian food of course...) Food quality is excellent, portions are really good and the service is great! Highly recommended

Had a fantastic meal out, catered very well for two gluten free diners, as well as a range in spice preference from very mild to spicy. Roshan(our waiter) was fantastic and very attentive and helpful towards the gluten free diners. Wholeheartedly recommend, we’ll be back
