We were living in Bur Dubai before moving to Abu Dhabi, and used to miss having a Sukh Sagar or Bikanerwala equivalent here .. We found one in Samrat .. Great Cutting Chai, nice South Indian and great Vada Pao .. And it is extremely reasonable .. They have a comfortable outside seating area which in this weather is an added star.. Overall, one of the best value for money restaurants in town which u ought to try

Samrat Restaurant is just 3 minutes walk from my office. I usually go there for breakfast and like almost all dishes. Masala Dosa, Idli Vada and Onion Uthappam are my favorites. Samrat cutting Tea is a special tea strongly prepared for tea lovers.

A recent trip to Abudhabi became interesting and memorable with a lunch at the newly opened Samrat- Vegetarian restaurant.
The vegetarian tag didn't cause much of a worry as we wanted to eat something lite!
The place is well lit and the walls adorned with famous Bollywood dialogues recreated in style, very unique indeed!
We were served with desi mojitos in glass tumblers, very tasty and cool, i asked for another one and so did everyone with us.
While browsing thru the menu we found almost all the desirable vegetarian delicacies of India, north to south, east to west featured in it.
Finally we settled for the Special Thali of the day, which came about 10 minutes later, lo and behold...what a spread..aromatic & tempting array of bowls with dry & gravy dishes, sweet, savoury & pickled ones! Hot breads in a basket containing yellow missi roti, white kulchas & naans apart from the usual brown roties. Our table was a riot of colours, all natural of course..very Bollywood like spread!
We enjoyed every morsel of our thali with breads and rice and finally had the sweet treat- moongdal halwa.
We didn't stop at that, went on to try the Falooda..which was slightly heavy but then we asked for it! Very tasty indeed, wish there was more vermicelli in it...but no complaints.
We were uni-vocal in praising the staff about the food & service, clearly the best Indian restaurant in Abudhabi serving delicious pure vegetarian food in a cheerful ambiance.
I recommend this place as a must try!!

In the dearth of veg hotels in Abu dhabi, one of the few good hotels that serves good veg Indian fast foods is Samrat Restaurant. Nice Dosas served here.

Abu Dhabi is getting more and more interesting with regard to Vegetarian options opening up.This restaurant is a new one in Abu Dhabi and we went there for a Friday lunch.Went there early at about 12:45 pm to avoid any rush.The place is small but has a vety good decor with wenge colour furniture.The walls are adorned with Bollywood film trivia which is interesting.We tried the Weekend thali for AED 25.00 which was filling and worth every dirham.The taste was good and not at all oily and also no colour added in the curries.The kids had Chole batura ,the batura was not all oily.Overall the food was good and the service was prompt with a smile.Clean washroom also gave a good impression.
