The Foundry is a fine dining restaurant tucked inside the very sophisticated 4-star but 5-star looking hotel Southern Sun in Abu Dhabi. As soon as I entered the hotel, I was already impressed at the minimalistic design and interiors. And when I finally found The Foundry, I was more fascinated at how good the overall design of the restaurant was.
The Foundry is an intimate and stylish Abu Dhabi steakhouse serving the finest tender cuts of meat in the city. It has won a lot of awards and has been recommended by foodies and is arguably the best steakhouse in this part of the UAE.
It was almost the weekend so they were having the Thursday Steak Feast. It means that you can indulge in a collection of signature dishes served directly to your table. The promotion entitles diners to multi servings of a delightful selection, including freshly-shucked oysters, crisp salads, and top-quality cuts.
Driving all the way from Dubai, I definitely had huge expectations about the food. And add the favorable reviews online, I thought to myself that this should be good. Luckily, it was.
The food was not just good, it was excellent. From the scrumptious starters all the way to the steak which was tender and juicy, I truly enjoyed myself. The steak alone was a reason enough to have a drive down to Abu Dhabi.
Also, being a steakhouse, I was amazed by the fact that they present a selection of knives to the clients first before the steak is served. And then the diners can choose which one they like to use and that I think is a good touch of personalization.
As with any other fine dining restaurants, I think it’s almost always noticeable that they have highly trained waiters and knowledgeable staff that are able to give excellent customer service to clients. The waiters here were no different, we experienced nothing but impeccable service from the team.
With prices starting at AED 199++ for the soft beverages package and AED 299++ for the House beverage package, I believe this is already a great deal. I also have to mention that if you like a certain food, you can order as much as you want and the price stays the same. I’m so glad I discovered the Foundry. With a classy interior + succulent steak and mouth-watering dishes + faultless service, this restaurant is definitely a must-visit.
The Steak Feast is on every Thursday from 7.00pm to 11.00pm.
