“Go, eat, enjoy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014 via mobile

Tried this as it was right across from where we were staying and sure glad we did. Lots of variety at a great price. Had the special mix grill, okra curry and a fattoush salad and all was very good. It also came with bread and hummus which was great.
Very light on the wallet for the quality as well which is an even bigger joy.

Can't wait to try something different next chance!

“Good enough to visit again and again.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

This restaurant shall get a rating of 3.4 instead of 3 that I have given. Not 4 because it is not classy. The taste of food is very good. Instead of categorizing the restaurant based on cuisine I would prefer to call it a restaurant serving delicious food. Cleanliness is maintained above average. Rates are slightly above average but for the taste that you get, I would turn a blind eye towards this factor. The salad that you get with your order is better than any other restaurant visited. I mean, the quantity of salad is more than others and it is fresh for sure. Being an Abu Dhabi resident, I visit this restaurant often. Only once did I find something to complain about - The water bottle was leaking and Dal served contained some uncooked grains. In spite of this, I will keep on visiting this place in future.

“Fantastic Food!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2013

Al Ekram is a Pakistani restaurant n i think its the best Pakistani rest. in Abu Dhabi. Being an Indian who eats spicy food when i go to other Pakistani rest. i find the food bland. But in this rest. it had the Indian touch. The best dish in this rest. is Ginger Chicken. It is a sizzler n the taste is also very good. The next in my favourite list is Chicken Tikka Masala. Even this dish is very good, if one visits this restaurant then they should surely order these two dishes. The Tandoori Roti which they serve makes the food more delicious. I think this tandoori roti is the best roti i have ever tried in Abu Dhabi.

The service is very fast n the waiters are friendly. The ambience is also very good.

The only dish which i think is available better in North Indian restaurants is Butter Chicken. I prefer to order other dishes when i go to Al Ekram.

Overall this restaurant is very good n also pocket friendly. i go this restaurant frequently with my family n they enjoy it.

“Good indian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013

Tried it a few times. Butter chicken is excellent. so are many other dishes that are difficult for me to remember or spell. Good place to order for delivery. I picked up my food once and found the place to be clean.
