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.

I have visited this restaurant a few times. Food is sizzling and you ave to wait sometime until it gets cool, unless you'll end up with burns. Atmosphere is decent and but most of the times crowded. Food quality and quantity is good but over priced. But better visit at least once and see. Helpful staff. Issue is with the... More

having visited the restaurant once, I was NOT impressed with the location and there was parking. It was cramped. The food was for delivery but when it arrived, it was poorly packed and very disappointing. Highly overrated and overpriced.

There food take a little while to come, but just as the name, when it does come it sizzles away. The tough part would be the wait until your food cools down. Basically everything... More

This was my first visit to Sizzle, though I had been wanting to visit for quite sometime. The place really lived up to the expectation. The food was really great, and the management was very considerate to have mentioned in the menu card how not to get your tongue burnt. (Not that it really helped!) The restaurant has a nice...
