Time Out Says

It’s a problem every group faces when deciding where to eat – one person wants seafood, one wants a hearty sandwich while another needs a sweet fix. This is where restaurants like Al Shami shine like a beacon, with its breadth of choice and budget-friendly menu.

Don’t be overfaced by the huge selection – there are more than 15 shrimp dishes alone – it’s the simple things this Deira dining spot has become such a go-to for.

Juicy grills, hot, crispy falafel, lemon-packed cabbage salad and generous, meaty shawarma with some of the best garlic sauce around.

While boat-shaped, cheese-filled pastries make their way around the spacious dining room, relax and soak up the bustling vibe. Wash your meal down with a traditional sweet tea, and don’t leave without trying something from the dessert menu – the kunafa is an absolute must (chocolate or Lotus are optional, but encouraged if you’re after a real sugar hit).

Relaxed, wallet-friendly and worth having on your radar.
