“nothing great”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

I've eaten here a few times. First thing you notice is the complete lack of atmosphere. It's like dining in the lobby of an office tower after everyone has left for the day. The staff are however fairly helpful. The buffet isn't great. Limited choice and not all that fresh ime.

“Bland food & poor service”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I tried this restaurant twice just to sample different foods from the menu. Regretfully the food is very bland and tasteless. The restaurant feels sterile and the service is quite poor. The price is higher than other better Indian restaurants in Abu Dhabi. I will not return here as the food is not good.

“Authentic indian food served here!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We love dining in Foodlands with family and friends especially for special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries etc.. We even conducted my son's birthday party here and it was arranged quite well by them. The decorations with balloons were done perfectly. The party hall is good enough to accomodate a lot of people.
We specially love the dahi vadas, the kebabs, the butter chicken and paneer butter masala here. It is one of the best indian restaurants in Abu dhabi.
The prices are reasonable as well.
The buffet selections are amazing and it has a lot of variety too.

“Best Indian restaurant for quality food at affordable price”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Foodlands restaurant on airport road in Abu Dhabi is liked by not only Indians but also expats of other countries and locals. Late evenings are preferred by locals as they come in big groups to taste Indian food with extra spice. We had Indian and Chinese food and both were very tasty and good portions per serve. Chicken Hakka Noodles and Chilly chicken are must not miss dishes. The prices also are very reasonable. Only problem is with car parking. Very hard to find a parking in front side. So try to get your parking at the back side area.
