If you are in Abu Dhabi and looking for budget Indian Cuisine restaurant, then this is the place to go for. Nice ambiance with old Indian Hindi songs. Service and food quality both are good.

The place is nice, but requires some refurbishment. The service was fast and friendly. The food during dinner was great for me as I love Indian food. But my couple which can't eat any spicy food at all, had problems with the food even though she warned the waiter that she can't eat spicy food, so that the kitchen guys... More

A decent place to consider for a thali. The ambience is also fine, though sometimes a little noisy due to being in the food court.

Good place for non- vegetarian lovers. They have a pretty good choice of starters. Bhabi murgh and prawn masala is my favorite in Dethali. Nice ambiance, good location ( though it's inside a mall, it doesn't feel like that.) very good food, excellent service. There is something in this place that makes you want to go there again n again.value... More

I'm very surprised at some of the negative reviews on here. I've been to De Thali four or five times since it opened and always found the food tasty, the service delightful and the prices reasonable. It's also got a great ambience that is very different to most of the other budget Indian places in Abu Dhabi or to most... More
