We went more than ten times and our favourite foods are Pani Poori, Bhel Poori, Bhav Bhaji, Aloo Paratha, Schezwan Fried rice, sambar idly and rava dosa. Hotel is very close to our home so frequently we are visiting.

I had lunch in the outlet at the Abu Dhabi world trade centre. Nice, small place. Service is good. Good food with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. Slightly on the higher side in terms of cost, but still acceptable. Good for family groups.

Used to be our favourite especially the fish biryani & yellow dal. We went to the old one on A/port rd which despite some renovation still looks like a down & out grubby joint; poor lighting, damp floors & freezing AC. The fish tikka was...More

Restaurant with terrace behind Mercure Central Hotel in a pedestrian street. The best rava dosa of Abu Dhabi! Friendly and quick service (even on the terrace!) and cheap! A must in Abu Dhabi if you like Indian food.
