Johannesburg South Africa

Sheikh Palace, Rivonia, Johannesburg

My friend and I had gone to Sheikh Palace in Rivonia couple of times, to get a takeaway and later for dining in.

Second Visit:

We ordered Chicken Shawarma, Hummus, and Pita.

Shawarma: Chunks of chicken, well cooked and yummy. One of nice Shawarma places we found in Johannesburg

Hummus and Pita: As always, my favorite and Sheikh palace delivered good.

First Visit:

After some intense discussions and taking suggestions from the steward, we ordered for 3 pitas, a beef steak (which came with fries) and a Baba ghanoush.

Beef Steak: Too little for the price being charged. Only consolation was the fries that came with it. My friend found it decent.

Baba ghanoush: Decent fare again. Not something you’d rave about, but not very bad either.

Note: Peri Peri sauce supplied with the steak and Baba ghanoush still had the raw onion flavor and wasn’t ground well. It was a put off, considering the price we paid for the food.

Total bill: R 220
Total bill (Second visit): R 255

Quality: 3/5
Quantity: 2.5/5
Service: 4/5
VFM: 3/5
Overall: 3/5

Worth visiting? – Well, maybe, but only for their Hummus and Shawarma.

A stereotypical IT guy with a typical love for good food and good movies, not so typical love for books, rare love for the theatre arts and an abominable love for such lengthy sentences.

Naturally, with such varied interests, I come out with highly opinionated reviews ranging across categories and mindless blah blah blah.

I'm supposed to be living in Chennai, but I usually live in one of the social networks listed on my profile, since, hey that's so cool yo ;)
