A simple restaurant serving traditional Syrian cuisine as well as few mixed cuisines , that is what Shami gourmet is all about. I happened to visit the outlet in Burlington tower in business bay. They have ample dining space with comfortable seating arrangements as well as an open kitchen. Interesting special dishes are served on each days during lunch time. Our host did suggest us some dishes from the menu.
We called for fresh juices to start with. Orange, Cocktail and Orange-carrot were the chosen ones. It was freshly squeezed and refreshing.
We straight away moved on to the main course-
Kofta kebab- Meat kofta with the perfect blend of spices was really enjoyable.
Lamb chops- Melt-in-mouth lamb chops cooked to perfection was my favorite of the day.
Tandoor chicken tikka- It had an Indian touch to it with spicy marination and it was good with white rice too.
Chicken kebab- Some how I did not like this since it was a bit dry and the spices , I felt a bit weird.
For dessert, we ordered a chocolate crepe which is a frequently ordered one and we did like it too.
I recommend everyone to try this restaurant whenever you are in the mood for some Arabic- Syrian delicacies.
