Best Shamming Kebabs and Tandoori Chicken. And of course yummy lassi . It is tucked in some corner of Al Wadha road but it's a gem.

Al Afadhil is an Awadhi cuisine diner in Sharjah (Wahda street), which is hard to find, but a real gem. They have opened another branch in Karama, which has equally good food (though I heard that the food comes from Sharjah’s kitchen and is reheated here). Lucknow Kebab is known as Galauti Kebab in Lucknow, they must have named it... More

I had the lucknowi kebab and kofta with the paper thin parathas and lassi to polish it off A friend recommended... More

My first time here a couple of months ago with friends who know the place well. The venue itself is in the middle of a small industrial area in Sharjah and parking is an issue. We parked a fair distance away and walked to the restaurant for a late lunch. The menu is limited and the place itself appears basic... More

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
