My friend and I had gone to Sheikh Palace in Rivonia couple of times, to get a takeaway and later for dining in.
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.
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
Worth visiting? – Well, maybe, but only for their Hummus and Shawarma.
