Sizzlers are a recent 'inno-vention' that consists of an entire meal being served on a cast iron platter, which is in turn placed on a wooden base and served sizzling to your table. Sizzlers probably originated a few centuries ago when meat was served on a heated cast iron plate to keep it piping hot, while the diner ate his meal. Today, however, they have become a cuisine of sorts by themselves as many specialty restaurants serve only Sizzlers on their menu. A sizzler is a combination of a main dish served with a choice of sauces and a large variety of accompaniments, making it a complete meal by itself! "The SIZZLE" presents a new line of cuisine to the local palette with great authentic Halal recipes presented in a creative manner, resulting in innovative recipes, delectable combinations, bathed in herbs, eastern flavors - a sense of fusion in taste with a tantalizing aroma. Platters of mouthwatering meats, seafood and veggie delights served sizzling to your table.

The food was pretty good and it was worth for the price we paid but there is no ventilation this makes it very claustrophobic with all sizzling food steaming inside the restaurant. we would have enjoyed it more if the place was a bit bigger

Though the place is a bit cramped up and no perticular atmosphere I must say the food is awesome. Something different where all comes with a sizzling package even the desserts. Hence if you goinng with kids need to be a bit more careful of hot plates around. I have been here several times and the quality has not faded.

I have been going to the Sizzle a few times over the last few years. I've always liked their food but looooved their desserts. This is probably the first and only truly "sizzling" restaurant in the country (at least the only exclusive and affordable one). Went for ifthar got free kanji, watermelon juice, dates and 20% off the total bill.... More

This is an absolute winner. Great value for money. The mixed grill is enough for two good eaters. The drinks are great as well.
