If u want simple dishes, fresh seafood in a simple local is the right place! Recommended "Special Sanobar", big portion and low price.

If you like sea food, Sharjah offers a lot of nice restaurant. This one ws recommended to us. However the selection of fish / seafood was very disappointing. The service was extremely bad, and it is overpriced compared to other restaurants serving better quality fish. Won't return

To those who are unaware, the restaurant serves complimentary appetizers and salads with entrees, like hummus, pita (khubus), cabbage salad, pickles etc. Everything on the table was delicious. Our server was really sweet and friendly. She really made our... More

I liked the design of it - creates a feel of an oasis with all the greenery among the surrounding sands. As title says, we only had breakfast there, so can't judge its seafood selection, but one thing IS pretty clear - the place is expensive with prices ranging from 70 to 200 Dhs (from USD 20 to 60) per...

I can't stop coming here for the amazing sea food they make us every time and at the end of the meal they put us the most delicious aish al saraya sweet. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The best time to come to Sanobar is in the cool months when you can sit outside. Sanobar does grilled fish the best. They have a large selection of fresh local fishes. After selecting your fish, the chef cooks it on the outside fire where you can watch. Other items on the menu (prawns, squid, etc.) are not exceptional. You... More

The Sanobar has to be one of the best seafood restaurants in the UAE. It's a simple place, great menu, fabulous service, and large portions of freshly cooked seafood done to the way you like it best. The waitresses are the best. Never ending smiles, always on the move and cater to your needs to ensure your dining experience is... More
