    I am from Leicester and currently in Ahmedabad. My cousins who came from Leicester with me are all fed up of having vegetarian food at home and even outside. We want some non-veg food, which no one in our families eats, apart from our parents, but they are enjoying the veg meals, it's just us kids.

    My cousins and I will be going out on our own in a couple of days and would like to know about some of the good non-veg restaurants in Ahmedabad. More than one recommendations would be good to know, as we are in India for another three weeks yet.

    Hello, @Bhakti! Welcome to the forum!

    Here are some of the best non-vegetarian restaurants in Ahmedabad:

    1. La Bella - This restaurant has Goan cuisine reminiscent of the Old Ahmedabad. In fact, the restaurant is pretty small, resembling a small home. If you're craving for some home cooked non-vegetarian meals at an affordable price, then do consider this place. Meals have low usage of oil and spices so they're very healthy. They also won't break the bank at about Rs. 40 per plate of curry. The owners are a married couple who have been in the business for over 50 years now. The menu is very limited though but for the price and taste you get, you really cannot complain about it.

    3. Daawat E Khaas - They have a variety of cuisines: Hyderabadi, North Indian, Mughlai and Lucknowi. This restaurant is most well-known for their kebabs, due to their tenderness and flavour. They mostly have chicken dishes but you'd also find other meat dishes in the menu. Make sure that you arrive at an earlier time as this restaurant is always packed with customers. You'd also have to wait longer to be served due to the crowds, which is one of the downsides of visiting this place.

    4. The Trophy By Tomato's - This restaurant has North Indian, European, Continental and Asian cuisines. If you and your cousins are a fan of sports, then you'd love the interiors of this restaurant as it's sport-themed. For starters, they give free popcorn to guests as you wait for your meals to be served. For the main dishes, they have a variety of non-vegetarian meals like pizzas, chickens and kebabs. They also have a variety of cocktails and mocktails.

With their elegant interiors and cosy ambience, this restaurant is an all-in-one package. It's one of the few places in the country where Southern dishes are celebrated and are served to all guests. They have a variety of seafood dishes that are lip-smacking and delicious. They are best known though for their authentic Keralan dishes but the truth is, all dishes that they serve are flavourful and certainly something to be proud of as they're all local and endemic to the Southern region.

Another good thing about this place is it's healthier as compared to other shawarma places in the region.

    Well, I feel really bad for you. Even when I was there, I couldn't take the sweetness of food. I mean I loved it the first week, but after that I literally missed regular food. Anyways, here are the top 3 picks from me:

    1. Awadhpuri - Not only will you find rich meats, they also have some of the best delicacies made out of meat which will melt in your mouth.
    2. Tandoor works - This is another one of those places where you'll easily want to forget table manners.
    3. Barbeque Nation - Finally, I know you're British and this is a very American place. But, Bbq nation is the place you're looking for if you really want to quell your hunger and have something that you'd usually find at home.
