“Great for a quick, Indian Lunch at a great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Located conveniently in downtown Abu Dhabi, Salam Bombay is a small restaurant which serves traditional Indian dishes. Service is quick and courteous. Our waiter was kind enough to steer us away from certain dishes explaining that since the hour was late for lunch - about 3.30 pm - those dishes might not be the best choice. We selected a couple of curries, a dal fry and butter nans. The meal arrived in about 10 mins and was delicious! Not just because we were ravenous - the food really was good. A meal for 3 cost me AED 78 which is very good price in Abu Dhabi.

Recommended for lunch at least. I have never visited the restaurant for dinner but am told that it is good.

Salam bombay is exactly what its suppose to be! Great Food collection and quality but unfortunately the service time is horrendous. Overall it has been a good experience.

“One of the best Vegetarian corner in Abu Dhabi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Usually we leave our country for our professional career, but still keep missing our own home land and of course its specialty of food too. Once visiting Salam Bombay at Abu Dhabi we felt like getting taste of Mumbai as it is...........vada pav, samosa pav, chat items and ever green pav bhaji and ....and....and...

Well, the team of Salam Bombay and their tasty food verities made us impressed and we never have to think of any thing to enjoy our pure 100% vegetarian taste.

Now being more popular sometimes we face problem with waiting in queue and delayed services but the fun is to start enjoying the chats even when you are waiting for tables to be available for you.

We recommended many of our friends and all have appreciated Salam Bombay food....now I request our friend of Salam Bombay to not delay a corner somewhere on Khalifa Street so we can have home delivery as and when we want rather than visiting the restaurant each time.

“Great food of Indian taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We have tried almost everything from their menu, the food tastes really good. Food is little spicy for non Indians. My fav. Items are chees pav bhaji, vada pav, veg lollipop, schezwan noodles, bhiryani. I would surely recomment if someone wants to go for typical Indian food.
