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.
