AMBIANCE / DÉCOR OF reviews of Mynt Abu Dhabi – One of the best Indian restaurants in Abu Dhabi
Black and gold sleek and stylish interiors with turquoise couches give a very contemporary style of an arrangement. The yellow curtains and yellow flowers give a pleasing contrast to dark surroundings. The color combination of black, turquoise and yellow makes perfect colorful interiors with lovely contrasts. Even the lighting arrangements are great. Walls are simple with only a couple of wall pictures depicting Indian culture. I liked their minimalist style of décor as they have not used many artifacts but with the choice of right colors, they have created the whole décor.
You can choose window seating with a view of lively streets of Abu Dhabi or a personal cabin style of seating.
The geometrical grills with golden paints give a very dramatic effect to this restaurant. These grills you can find while window seating or used as a separation for personal seating. Even there is a party table where more guests can sit together and have meals. This table is laid out in a separate dining area and faces a big mirror. This big table is perfect for a family get together or a small party.
This restaurant has an open style of the kitchen where you can peep out to see your favorite foods are cooked by expert chefs.

Wow the food and decor looks absolutely stunning!
My mouth is watering. Vegetarian food is my favourite and Indian food is always at the top of my list. What a classy restaurant. The interior design in stunning and coupled with the lovely presentation of the dishes, I will certainly put this restaurant on my list of places to visit in Abu Dhabi. I have family living there and it is on our list to visit on the way to Europe.
Good to know that you love Indian vegetarian dishes and very soon you will able to make to Abu Dhabi.
Oh! This is very timely. We’re off to Abu Dhabi in September and would love to try this. My husband loves indian food so, I guess I can surprise him with a visit to Mynt. The Aloo Channa Chaat looks really good. Can’t wait to visit.
Oh great Clarice that you are visiting Abu Dhabi in September. You would truly love the Indian cuisine served here.
Always love finding great new Indian restaurants. This one looks really nice, love the decor. Mynt Restaurant looks really lovely and I’ve never had a palate cleansing drink served at an Indian restaurant before – what a nice touch. I’ll be passing through Abu Dhabi early December for a few nights before Thailand, so I’m making a note of this find. Thank you.
Great Sarah that you are visiting Abu Dhabi very soon and hopefully you find time to dine out here.
You are spoilt for choice when you start looking at the options for indian cuisine in the Middle East but must say this one stands out. The decor is so classy and the bright colours just creates a great atmosphere. I must admit the food looks as tempting as well to match the top atmosphere. Great you enjoyed your lunch which I think is a better way to enjoy a restaurant rather than a busy evening.
Yes, the lazy lunch are always a great way to spend time with family because in evenings the restaurant staff and all are very rushing.
It looks like I’m going to Abu Dhabi alley for this restaurant. The fact they give you not one, but complimentary drinks is unheard of where I live. Additionally, all of their food looks incredible. The appetizer and paneer tikka masala sold me. I already loved Indian cuisine, but this restaurant took it to a new level.
Yes Emily, the hospitality of this restaurant really took to new level
I love the design of the restaurant, and that food looks so amazing! I can’t wait until I get the opportunity to go.
This place looks great, I love Indian food! The decor looks really modern and compliments the bright colors of the food. I love the heart on top of the drink too! SO cute!
Thanks Hailey, I agree the place looks bright and even the taste of drink is very refreshing and appeal to eyes also.
The place classy. I can’t do without Indian food and will make a note of visiting bthis whenever I am in Abu Dhabi. The paneer tikka masala looks delectable. Looks like a must try.
Thanks Pooja and you would surely enjoy the taste and ambiance of this restaurant.
This looks like a great choice for Indian food in Abu Dhabi. You’re right about the decor, it’s so striking and I like the color scheme too! I’m not familiar with many Indian dishes, but I’d like to try some of those you listed here. That drink looks nice and refreshing though!
Though you are not familiar with Indian dishes, you would truly enjoy it when you start with it.
I’ve not heard of this new restaurant Mynt in Abu Dhabi, I’ll check it next time I’m there. I love the décor, those turquoise chairs are beautiful! I love being in a restaurant with an open kitchen, really adds to the atmosphere. The Aloo Chana Chaat looks super delicious as does the Paneer Tikka Masala. Thank you for sharing your new find!
Vanessa, this is new opened restaurant in Abu Dhabi. Plan to visit this time.
I love Indian food and I need to remember te Mynt when I’ll visit Abu Dhabi! The interior looks classy and cozy, I love those blue touches. Also, I’ve never seen a place serving palate cleanser drinks in between dishes, so cool!
Thanks Val for reading through and even I too find Palate cleanser is unique concept for me.
I haven’t tried Mynt in Abu Dhabi but I have been to UAE before. I’m so curious to try ALOO CHANA CHAAT as it looks good in photos. OMG! I love Paneer Tikka Masala. It’s my default order during my trips whenever I’m craving for Indian food. I’ll definitely put Mynt in my bucket list in Middle East section of my travel diary. Hope to visit this soon!
Yes Sure Emman, you would love it
The Mynt Abu Dhabi is simply posh, classy and very impressive! I was rather shocked that you said the restaurant was affordable because it definitely looks like it’s upper class. I would love to dine there and feel like royalty, even just for one meal. The aloo Chana chaat also looked divine. The different textures and flavors would make this dish very complex and a delight to eat. I’ll definitely have to visit this restaurant someday!
I love the modern, chic ambiance of Mynt Abu Dhabi. And I love anywhere that has an open style kitchen where I can watch the chefs work their magic.
