Ushna at The Souk at Qaryat Al Beri has been named winner of Best Newcomer at the Time Out Abu Dhabi Restaurant Awards 2009.

'Ushna was welcomed by the judges as a remarkable discovery; the food is impeccable, the setting irresistible and we expect it to challenge very strongly in future years.' said the judges of the winning restaurant.

Winning a Time Out Abu Dhabi Award is no easy feat. The magazine's team of food critics visit each restaurant in Abu Dhabi, dining anonymously and paying for every meal, in order to arrive at their conclusions. The judging process takes into account not just the quality of food, but presentation, service, ambience and value for money. The Time Out Abu Dhabi awards are 100% independent - the only awards in the city that can make this claim. To obtain recognition at the awards ceremony is to achieve something outstanding.

The Time Out Abu Dhabi Restaurant Awards 2009 were presented at a glittering ceremony at the Le Royal Meridien on Wednesday 4th November. Leading General Mangers, Directors, Head Chefs, F &B directors, marketing directors and managers from many of the city's top restaurants gathered in anticipation as Time Out Abu Dhabi delivered its verdict on the best venues to eat in the city.
