The restaurant has a good and unusual decor ...the food was also good ,atleast watever I ordered for...But I cannot help without saying this...For any Shababeek guy reading this review...Good service does not mean that you appear presentable....Good service depends on your behaviour and attitude to your customers...We went to the restaurant at 11pm during Ramadan and the waiter was so rude that he said..."u finish ur food or not...we will be closing in time"...and since we were starving and did not want to hunt for another place we settled down...they attended us with honey bee stinged faces,rude,rushing and remained unheard ...and the hilarious part of it was,they gave us the bill wen we just started off with the main course telling that they need to close their systems...I infact pity the owner of the restaurant for having such unloyal and undedicated staff who just wants to finish off work and rush home....i really am annoyed with them....

Having said about the negative....the food and decor are indeed good positives that hopefully pay off for its terrible staff....

The restaurent is in very good location in Qusba which is a happening place. Food quality also very good. They have a open space to seat. Overall the quality is very good.

Shababeek is mentioned in the Lonely Planet as one of the better restaurants in Sharjah. I went in November after visiting the book fair with relatively high expectations.
However, pretty much the entire lunch experience was a disappointment: the food was simply uninspiring and failed to surpass the standard of any average Lebanese restaurant.
Following a mistake with our order, we had the kofte kebabs and the kibbeh in yoghurt sauce. Average dishes. We didn't finish our meals despite being hungry. The tabouleh was decent though. The juices looked promising but I doubt they used fresh ingredients.
Like the food, the service wasn't very heartwarming either. The waiters seemed like they weren't very happy to work there.
At the time of our visit, the restaurant was noisy with lots of children running around. There was also a smell of detergents that didn't help. Maybe that means the place is clean but it doesn't make for a nice dining experience.
On top of that, it's just too expensive given the poor quality.
To be avoided.

Were there with children and the service was quick :-) The food was good and people were very nice. Ideal place at the Qasbah!

the location was a bit of a psedo historic structure with fake arabic architecture, artificial canal, bridge and landscaping; but it was very pretty especially after dark when all the lights were on. The restaurant has a good atmosphere, order grill fish, chicken, lamb, salad etc and all very fresh and delicious, loved the fish in particular. service was good and the place was clean. enjoyable overall.
