Based in the picturesque Venetian Village at The Ritz-Carlton, Punjab Grill is Abu Dhabi’s only 4.9 rated restaurant. And I just had to find out why. Locating the place is dead easy thanks to Zomato and Google Maps.

I’ve enjoyed several breakfasts and dinner there but not lunch or brunch. This review is about their breakfast. You can … Continue reading Ewaan, a palatial buffet
