‘Paris Kitchen’ a casual dining restaurant located in the heart of the city (Abu Dhabi). The name might confuse you but this is an Indian restaurant that offers many Indian, Asian, BBQ, Chinese, and are specialized in south Indian dishes. They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and have Veg and non-veg both options.
Ambiance: It’s a small place with an indoor seating area. As soon as you enter the restaurant you will witness the Eiffel tower monument. They have a very interesting themed interior and décor similar to highway route 66. The walls of the restaurant are filled with various retro road sign boards, multicolor vintage tags, vintage bike accessories, and a shabby chic décor. Seating is not so comfortable but unique which goes well with their vintage theme. During peak hours it’s usually crowded and waiting.
What we ordered
We went before peak hours so there was no rush and we had options for seating. A tasty welcome drink of a lassi shot was served at our table.
1. Corn soup & Veg manchow: Both the soups were served hot and freshly made. The corn soup was average in taste. Manchow soup was too thick and should have been better. Both the soups were average in taste.
2. French Fries: Average taste. These were prepared from a ready-made frozen packet, so nothing great they were just deep-fried and served. (had to order for kids)
3. Hariyali Chicken Tikka: Very Tasty & must try. The chicken was nicely marinated and cooked well. All the spices were perfect and grilled nicely. Served with sider green chutney and onion rings.
4. Chicken Sikh Kababs: A perfect plate I can say, Kababs server with bread (Arabic roti) along with 2 siders (curd & Hummus). Added french fries and a half bread topped with pizza sauce and herbs. kababs were cooked well and grilled nicely. Though the taste was average. masala, herbs we not that perfect could have been better.
5. Paneer Chilly: It was tasty. paneer was soft and nicely fried in the sauces along with other veggies.
6. Basket Roti & Dal Tadka: Absolutely good. Roti was freshly made and served hot. Dal tadka had a nice mix of dal flavors, cooked well with medium spicy.
Service: The staff is friendly and courteous. Food was served on time. Their menu list has many items so you have good choices to make. Though they don’t have any specialized dishes but the taste of food is good and portions are also sufficient.
Overall, we had a good dinner with our family friend. This is a budget restaurant so I cannot expect more but the portions and taste of food are good. I will recommend this place for their rustic interiors. As, its located in a very busy area which is Hamdan street, parking is a problem but don’t worry they also have a valet parking.
