Time Out Says

Located in the Diar Capital, one of Abu Dhabi’s older hotels near Zayed Port, Shanghai Surprise doesn’t score highly on first impressions. But when you open the menu you’ll see that this is most certainly a place to try Chinese cuisine. A meal kicks off with a complementary kimchi salad and an endless platter of prawn crackers with sauces. Most of the starters are divine, but main courses can be lacklustre. Vegetarians will be pleased with the excellent array of options.
