Ok people, I HAVE FOUND IT ... the best Pad Thai in AD! None of that yukky, gluggy mess where they stand on Jebel Hafeet and throw in the prawns, this was choc full of prawns and was just outstanding. In the end I had to have it taken away because I couldn't stop eating it. Thai chef, I tells ya - a GOOD Thai chef too! I'd already had appetizers - the chicken siew mai were delish and the sushi was also noteworthy - in fact, the crispy caramel maki was absolutely incredible. Im thinking I may have to swing back there for lunch again this week. For me, Cho Gao is a kind of hidden gem. Decor is cool and kind of cosy and service was very, very good. I absolutely loved it. Yay!
