“Family visit to a show in Cardiff”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Having checked 'Shaam Nights' out on TripAdvisor, we had a meal there prior to a show in Cardiff. The restaurant was authentic in its' decor and reminded us very much of places we'd frequented in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The restaurant was immaculately clean - as was the bathroom (a good indication of how hygienic a place is). The food was delicious - very tasty and cooked to perfection. The waiter was attentive. The owner/manager made a point of introducing himself and asking if we had enjoyed our meal. A worthwhile gesture on his part, in an area where there are lots of restaurants to choose from. We definitely plan another visit.

“Certainly #1 in Cardiff”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Moved here in January. Walked in without knowing anything about the place, and I have gone once a week, if not more, ever since. The staff are extremely kind and willing to assist in any way possible. They answer all questions you may have concerning the menu, and give suggestions for the not so advanced Syrian-cuisine consumer. Their charcoal grills are delicious, but branching out and trying the traditional entrées is greatly recommended. Reservations are a good idea for Friday and Saturday evenings.

“Well deserved Cardiff 's #1 with thumbs up”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Being here before last summer when my family was on holiday tempted us to give Shaam Nights one more try and were not disappointed.

Home feeling since stepping into the restaurant by the very warm welcome, polite and very friendly staff.

Our experience this time is even more enjoyable than last visit and definitely Shaam Nights deserve the vote being #1 in Cardiff.



Thank you Shaam nights for such beautiful and tasty Mix Mezza as well as the Grilled Mixed Platter and the out standing deco. Lamb and Chicken Shish are very tender and are absolutely outstanding. I have been to many Syrian restaurants in London and Paris but never enjoyed my meal as such.My family as individuals enjoyed their unforgettable meals.

I could see the manager is always their for customers to make sure that they enjoy their meals and for any recommendation for those who are familiar with Syrian Food. Now I can see why this family business is running very successfully!

Shaam Nights is a must visit for locals and when you are in Cardiff.

well done to all staff.


will certainly be back when visiting Cardiff next.

“Very nice but not number 1!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

I enjoyed our meal at Shaam Nights. Having eaten at a number of establishments on City Road with similar menus, I fail to see how this is the number 1 place to eat in Cardiff. I couldn't critise the food, it was very good value and very tasty. The owner did come and see us at the end of the meal to do some tactical market research, asking how we heard of the restaurant and said that he would welcome an online review etc. Perhaps that's why they are number 1! In any case it's worth a visit but is not a culinary experience that will blow you away. Other restaurants of a similar a style are equally as good.
