One of my favourite places for lucknowi kabab and lassi. Located in actually a very industrial space, defnitely not appealing. if you are ready to go through the traffic lanes of sharjah and end up in a small lane filled with old buildings and you find this little gem there serving this hot parathas, creamy lassi and yummy lucknowi kababs...

This little kebab shop has opened a new branch in an unusually quiet lane in Karama. The shop is larger and gets a decent family crowd, but the service is as indifferent and the 10 item menu, just the same. Famous for lucknowi kebab ( like a minced shami kebab which has been flattened on the plate) and creamy lassi... More

It's difficult to believe this is a running restaurant when you first see Al Afadhil in the daytime. The windows are opaque and there would be no sign of a living being around. Only when you step inside would you see all the people on the tables and realize that you may have to wait for a seat. The lassi... More

This place, hands down has the BEST lassi in the UAE. Shammi kebabs with the imli chutney will be amongst the best you have ever had if that interests your taste buds. Although they have a slightly long lunch break so you cant go anytime you wish, although at some point you will synchronize your plans to the restaurants timings!... More

My family and I have been coming here for more than 25 years. The thing that's great is that the food is consistently delicious. My go to dishes are the Lucknow kabab, daal fry and of course the amazing paratha. Service can be slow on busy days but they are pretty quick & not to mention the amazing vale for... More

Ducked in a corner of an old alley, this joint serves the best Lucknowi (Gulati) Kebabs and Yoghurt Drinks. it has its share of faithful customers and is crowded during the weekends. Limited Menu item but you will praise them once you leave the place. Just behind Karachi Darbar after Al Khan bridge going towards wahda..

Delicious mouth watering kabab with paratta and tasty lassi. It was an awesome experience with my friends first time that I went with my family again.

Handful of dishes, but each is worth trying. Excellent Taste, Value for money, gets crowded after 8pm and this is when the service deteriorates. Weekend is an even bigger struggle. Handful of Staff try their best to manage the non ending Hot paratha orders and the repeated onion and refill chutney demand. In all these years have seen the interior... More

Unless you hear about this pace, you will never venture in this. The decor is completely missing , and the outer look feels deserted. But once you are in, and order the Lucknow kababs with parathas , you cannot stop eating. Flat , perfectly made the kababs are a treat. The sweet lassi is highly recommended along with the meal....
