“Great meal anytime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Mahroosh is a great place, especially if you're on a budget. You should know that they don't serve Shawarmas until after 6pm, I think.

I used to live in Abu Dhabi for four years, and this was a go to place any time. I'd take anyone who visited me there too.

Grape leaves, chicken shawarmas, falafel sandwiches are all great options.

It is tucked away a bit, so you do have to go looking for it, since it's near the Corniche, but not visible from the Corniche.

“Yummy on a budget!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We've lived in Abu Dhabi for one year now, and Mahroosh is one of our favorite spots. Great hummos, falafel, shwarma, stuffed grape leaves, and "machine" chicken that is rotisseried. This comes with with hummos and is a favorite take-away when we don't want to cook. Did I mention it is priced very reasonably? I may go there for lunch today!

“Best shawarmas?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

Yes, definitely the best shawarmas in Abu Dhabi, in not the entire world.
Every time I am out with the friends, we just stop beside the restaurant, hidden amongst buildings in the corniche.
Park illegally while one of their many waiters come to your car and you order what you want.
Simply the best...

nuff said.

ps: its surprising how i never went into the restaurant itself... ever!

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Used to live in the UAE up until the end of the 90s' and as a family we used to go there every once in a while. It serves the best Shawerma and Falafel sandwiches I had ever tasted in my life.

It's now a bit not obvious to find, but it used to be across the street from the cornice.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

Their Chicken mexican shawarmas are .. Simply the best in UAE!! The filafels are simply delicious and mouth watering. TRY IT and you are sure that nothing else will taste as good. Parking outside the restaurant is no longer a problem ever since paid parking has been introduced in the area.
