We have been to Shami several times during our visit for both lunch and late snacks. The place has good kebab and always has a buzzing atmosphere. If you need a quick bite at a good price, stop here.

I ate Arabian Shawerma there and it was very good and tasty. However, I think the prices are little high. Also, they play nice collection of music arabic and english.

The food is good, the prices are a little bit high . I would have given better rating if you really pick better cashiers based on service not salary. The cashiers talk to the other staff more than they serve customers . Sorry

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
