Restaurant Review:

JLT, Cluster Q

Located in Cluster Q of Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Shawermania is a little cafeteria style restaurant with a menu that (obviously) features Shawerma but interestingly, not just the Arabic type that we are used to, but others as well. The restaurant also serves diverse combinations of food such as the Biryani Shawerma, Mexican Roll and Doner Kebabs.
At our recent tasting, here’s everything we had:

  • Halloumi cheese
  • French fries + cheese
  • Arabic Shawarma (Saj Bread)
  • Doner Kebab (Chicken)
  • Snickers Milkshake

The food is satisfactory. We enjoyed the appetizers; Halloumi Cheese and French Fries topped with Tortilla chips and cheese more than we did the Shawarmas. As far as the Shawarmas go, we quite liked the Arabic Shawarma but the Doner Kebab wasn’t as authentic as Doner sandwiches we have eaten in their countries of origin. Fine, to be fair, we won’t compare them with original Doner sandwiches but with those we’ve tried in Dubai itself and even then it doesn’t equate. The Snickers milkshake was extremely runny but alright taste wise and served the purpose of an after dinner dessert.
If you are in the JLT area, famished and really need to put some food in your belly as soon as you can, then Shawermania has you sorted.
