Places to visit in Sharjah

Places to eat in Sharjah

El Manza

Overlooking the Al Majaz Waterfront, the view isn’t the only point of conversation at El Manza. Its authentic Moroccan fare, coupled with the stylish décor, makes it a hot favourite among locals. Here, choose from the many seafood options in its ‘Special Menu’ or opt for one of the famous couscous delicacies.



In Arabic, the name of the restaurant translates to ‘window’, for its intention is to introduce the guests to authentic Lebanese cuisine. Expect a mix of traditional and modern dishes on the menu—from mezze platters to charcoal-grilled specialities.


At any point, if you begin to miss the Indian flavours, remember you’re never too far away. Gazebo brings the recipes from the royal kitchens of Lucknow and Hyderabad to Sharjah. So, whether it is delicious seekh kebabs or dum phukt biryani, the restaurant keeps you covered (while making your mouth water).

Aroos Damascus

Head here for the perfect fix of a no-frills, easy on the pocket Arabian meal. Start with the lentil soup, dig into a bowl of hummus, pair it with grilled quails or lamb chops, and nosh on a plate of shawarma. Doesn’t get any better!

Shakespeare and Co.

A mix of American, English and Lebanese dishes, listed on the menu of this café and bakery are just delicious. Think indulgent breakfast spreads, sweet and savoury crepes, and several healthy options including gluten-free bread and pasta.
