The 3 Best Restaurants in Sharjah

From authentic Moroccan cuisine to contemporary Lebanese fare, Sharjah has an array of stand-out eateries that combine outstanding menus with convivial surroundings. Here’s our pick of the best restaurants in Sharjah.

El Manza

El Manza, Sharjah

Located on the Al Majaz waterfront, El Manza opens out a terrace overlooking Sharjar Fountain. Inside, the dining space then fuses elegant Moroccan design features with contemporary furnishings and strewn cushions, and is divided into a series of intimate areas, from the Souq Essaouria area to Fas VIP Lounge and Agadir Terrace. In each of these cozy spaces, guests dine on authentic Moroccan fare that brings together Morocco’s traditional recipes and culinary techniques with accents of contemporary cooking. Aromatic spices and fragrant olive oil infuse each dish with the flavor of Morocco, in signature plates such as the classic tagine, which each reflect the Arab, Berber and Spanish culture Moroccan cuisine draws on. Leading Moroccan chef Hakim Ait Ben Adi is at the helm of the kitchen here, following on from time spent at five-star resorts such as Sofitel, Shangri-La and Royal Mansour; try the malik al robian mcharmel marinated king prawns, or tanjia Marrakeshia spiced lamb tagine.
