Oasis - If only the restaurant was as good as the band.

Oasis is a restaurant that was a favourite for my brother and I when we were kids and back in school, after which we shifted to India for a few years. We are both back to Abu Dhabi now and decided to go to Oasis yesterday for lunch and were quite excited about it because we had shared some great times here in the past and absolutely loved the food at one point of time.

Unfortunately we were not aware of the standard of the food deteriorating and falling down and decided to call for the Chicken Wanton, Chicken in Hot Garlic Sauce and Chicken Schezwan Noodles.

Starting with the chicken wanton, this was torturous; it was fried in oil that was probably years old. It wasn't crispy either. It made us feel sick and we left the entire plate as it was.

Moving on to the main course i.e. the Schezwan Chicken Noodles and Chicken in Hot Garlic, this was dreadful too.  Not only did its appearance disappoint us but the food taste as well. The chicken used in the noodles seemed stale, the noodles weren't cooked well either. The chicken used in the gravy dish was very rubbery and was tough to even chew.

You know there are times something is wrong with the food but the friendly staff makes up for it to some extent? Here the staff as well seemed rather arrogant except for the two Indian restaurant managers I think.

The restaurant interiors are decent, not too bad. Area wise it’s huge though.

However I would definitely not recommend this place to anybody until they change their food quality and the staff brings alters their attitude.

I would rate this place a 1/5
