Al Shami

Lebanese in Deira

Ask your friendly taxi driver where he recommends for late-night shawarma in Deira, and he may well direct you here. But fussy friends (and vegetarians) don't despair, the menu choice is massive, with a 16-salad choice for a start and a similar number of traditional fatayer (pastries) with fillings like spinach, cheese and falafel. Mixed grills, tajines and rice dishes too.

Worth noting: diners are plied with a steady supply of soft warm pita bread – no packaged version here.
