Interesting moorish interior design. Great strawberry juice and shaam night shake. Meze platter very good. Sharing meat platter very good just it's a very meat based meal. Some extra veg would have balanced up the meal.

Salad is recommended with our grilled dishes which is clearly stated on the top of our grill section. Shaam nights restaurant is very proud providing our dinners with a unique and... More

I really enjoyed my visit here with my work friends. The food was so tasty and reasonably priced. The mixed grills are thoroughly recommended. Please note that the restaurant doesn't serve alcohol and there isn't any licence in place for you to bring your own. Not a bad thing in my opinion. The only thing that let's the restaurant down...

The restaurant is unique and well styled. There is a friendly welcoming vibe and the place was full. Very good food and (non-alcoholic) drinks. I would highly recommend to anyone.

I visit Shaam nights about once a month! The food is the best! And the fruit juices are so tasty! With your bill you usually get mini pancakes filled with fresh cream and there delicious! Staff are always great and really friendly!
