This is definitely one of the best turkey takeaways in Abu Dhabi. The turkey is juicy enough but what really swings it from good to very good is the quality and variety of the vegetables. There are three different kinds of potatoes, all beautifully cooked, as well as numerous other vegetables. The gravy is a game-changer: it's thick, dark and rich - just the way we like our men ;) This fed four of use 3 times, so would easily feed 6 in a sitting.

We can't recommend this whole meal enough!
