Time Out Says

If you want shawarma at 4am, Zaroob is the place to come. This long-time favourite on the Sheikh Zayed Road is open 24 hours a day and shines brightly when all of its neighbours are closed for the night. Of course, you can come here during more sociable hours, but the charm of Zaroob is being able to dine while the rest of Dubai is sleeping. Its menu is a collection of classic Lebanese dishes with a few other regional favourites thrown in. Piping-hot breads such as manakish and saj, impress the most, served to the table fresh from the huge ovens. Hummus and foul make great accompaniments, or you can fill up on the Egyptian dish of koshari – an amalgamation of rice, pasta, lentils, garlic, tomato sauce, chickpeas and onions. Zaroob has been around for years but it still looks cool with its graffiti-covered décor and communal benches. It has gained a well-worn charm over the years and feels authentic. The staff have a bit of a reputation for being somewhat surly, but in our experience they’ve been efficient and friendly. So if hunger strikes in the middle of the night, you know exactly where to head.
