- there are a few mandi restaurants in the samha / baniyas areas (outskirts of abudhabi) serving good arabic food (not lebanese)
- although quite famous, the "lebanese flower" serves shitty food IMO
- few indian places (vegetarian) near el-dorado cinema serve good food but spicy.
- couple of paki restaurants after the hardley ableson showroom on passport street (or is it called defence street ?) which serve good spicy food and crispy, piping hot tandoori rotis
apart from a few places located in hotels/restaurants, i doubt if i can give you useful directions/leads.
whats your visit schedule to AuDhabi look like ?
Thanks for the suggestions so far. I agree about the Lebanese Flower, I was unimpressed.
We've visited a couple of spots around Tourist Club area (Bonna Annee, Maroush) and have been quite happy.
EDIT a few months later: we found a few places that we really liked besides the two above: Lebanese Mill (a rare combination of good, cheap and fast), Al Baghdadi (a block behind Lebanese Mill), and Bianco Rosso.
