Time Out Says

Sontaya, Thai for sunset, is a place for the capital’s diners to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy the intimate setting offered at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort. Its unique charm and exquisite menu cements its status as a top restaurant in Abu Dhabi – we’re big fans of this South East Asian eatery. Enjoy the sleek, contemporary décor while you sit on floating pavilions and take in the beach and Arabian Gulf views. Sontaya’s design lends itself wonderfully to a romantic evening, although families equally fit in. Offering appetisers, herbed and spiced salads, soups, seafood, meat and poultry, curries, rice, noodles and more, choosing your meal here requires more than just a quick perusal of the extensive menu. Every dish reflects a mixture of unique, key ingredients and distinct cooking styles from various South East Asian countries. With attentive staff, mouth-wateringly good food and a picturesque setting, a meal out at Sontaya will leave a lasting impression.
