Our Story
Once upon a time, in Abu Dhabi, four professionals were sitting around trying to decide what they wanted for lunch. One of them wanted something tasty, one of them wanted something healthy, the third said he needed something fast, and the fourth was in the mood for Shawarma. And that's how it began – an idea – that you can have food that can be fast, tasty, interesting, and healthy all at once! Shawarma Time was born!
Our Values
The concept behind Shawarma Time was designed by people just like you. We care about ourselves and our loved ones and would like to ensure meals containing the best organic produce, healthiest cuts of meat, and freshest breads. We also care about our environment, which is why we ensure minimal waste, and use only recyclable packaging. Why Shawarma? We realized the traditional Middle Eastern dish is much more versatile than you think! We offer a great range of Shawarma based meals that will make you come back for more. The variety is endless! Finally, we believe you should be able to eat a fantastic meal and leave feeling guilt-free and good about yourself. That is the Shawarma Time experience.

Shawarmas get a fresh twist in Abu Dhabi

A chic eatery on Najda Street has converted this traditional Arabic snack into a filling, sit-down meal for the family

Abu Dhabi: Shawarma is an anytime, anywhere snack for most of us. It is tasty, affordable and you don’t have to wait long to be served. But drop in at Shawarma Time and see how this Arabian snack has been revived into a sit-down meal which you can enjoy with the family.

Whether you are in the mood for a few quick bites or an elaborate meal, this distinctly chic and casual restaurant located on Najda Street in Abu Dhabi will definitely change your perception about this Arabic treat. Well, it has for me.

For instance, the Shawarma Baked (Dh20) is made of a huge baked potato topped with hummous, green peas, chopped onions, olives, corn and a choice of chicken/beef or fish shawarma. It is a delightful and filling meal. It’s big in size and healthy at the same time. The cheese drizzles out in twirls as you dig into the baked potato, and it’s very yummy.

Another favourite for me was the Shawarma Time Snacks (Dh20). This Brazil-influenced snack is prepared with potato dough and stuffed with your choice of shawarma ingredients. It’s a healthy choice as the dish is very low on oil or fats. The dough was layered with cheese and minced chicken and it tasted great when dipped in tomato ketchup. There are umpteen choices on the menu, but if you’re in the mood for healthy stuff, you could always order a shawarma salad (Dh25). However, there’s a great option for foodies with a huge appetite — the Shawarma Wok (Dh35). This unique flavoured jasmine rice dish comes with spring and red onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, bean sprout and peanuts. Top this with some fish, and you are in for a gastronomic treat.

The traditional shawarma also gets a new look as it is prepared in a thick, square-shaped flat bread instead of the usual round and rolled variety. It’s much larger than the regular variety and much more flavourful. You can detect the difference in this variation when you take the first bite. The meat is crunchy and juicy and the shavings are uniform in shape — the meat is sliced on a machine, not cut manually. You can layer it with spicy Turkish sauce or regular garlic paste. I washed down the shawarma delights with a refreshing pineapple and mint juice. The creamy and frothy juice with a pista green colour tasted as good as it looked.

With prices ranging from Dh15 to Dh25 and served in variety of combinations, the shawarmas are worth the extra bucks and can be truly called shawarmas for the soul.

The world of shawarma will never be the same - at least not here in the UAE where Brazilian Lilian Joumah has decided to explore other ways of making the traditional lamb, goat, chicken, turkey or beef roasted on a vertical rotating spit, shaved and usually served as a sandwich.

  • I had been to Shawarma Time today and ordered a Shawarmi Meal. The shawarma was amazing and the Belgium fries were the best fries I had in my life and juice was so refreshing. I am so lucky to have won this tasty meal.

It is the best shawarma I ever had and I have it atleast once in a week.

Abu Dhabi Week Magazine

October 2013

FAST FOOD. Quick, easy and rather greasy, right? Wrong. Shawarma Time on Najda Street has taken the concept of the Turkish traditional treat into a healthy and filling meal. Abu Dhabi Week made a pit stop to see what the place is all about.

A feeling of detoxification is experienced when walking in to this eatery. Clean gLass. zesty greens and crisp wood finishes set the tone for an establishment that has a clear idea on what healthy food Is.
We have to be honest, when we sat down at our table, we were already mulling over our ideas about shawarmas: fatty meat with fries and pickles, oozing with a thick sauce all stuffed into a white bread wrap. it doesn't exactly get our taste buds salivating. But manager Lilian iournah explained why they are different here: 'Typically. the meat spits need fat in order to keep the meat moist - around 40 to 60 percent is fat. However we've reduced this to 20 percent. Yes it may mean the product dries out quicker, but we want to deliver more meat, less fat and maintain a fresh and healthy product." said Joumah.
Firstly we chose the flavour. We opted for the chicken and as we like it spicy, the Turkish-style option.  Next, the style. Despite a variety of options, we stayed traditional and went for the sandwich. Then it was time for the sauce. Keeping the heat going, we had a gentle drizzle of the chili. And finally a choice between Belgium fries or a baked potato. We really liked the fries being served separately, leaving more room for chicken and vegetables inside the sandwich, and not clogging it up. Perfect.
Suitably full, we enjoyed one of the fresh, cool drinks on offer to sooth our tingling taste buds. Shawarma time is great for an energy boost at Lunch and just as satisfying enjoyed with friends and family for an evening meal.
