Where to go for Middle Eastern meals in Mumbai

Who doesn’t love a good shawarma? The crispy fries, the tender chicken, the garlic sauce – are you hungry yet? Mumbai has its fair share of shawarma stalls. However, if you’re looking past the shawarma and want a fully fledged Middle Eastern meal here’s where you should go.

If you’re from Mumbai, you’ve probably seen outlets of MM! Maroosh in just about every mall you’ve visited. It’s best known for its shawarmas which combine Indian flavours with Lebanese ones.

Try: Garlic hummus with olives and pita bread, chicken tikka shwarama

Where: Most mall food courts, including Phoenix Market City and Palladium. There’s also an outlet at Shivaji Park, Dadar and on Linking Road, Bandra.

Falafel’s

Like MM! Maroosh, Falafel’s also has different outlets in the city. While, true to its name, its falafels are delicious, you should also try its Quick Lite bites, like the pizza sambusac and the zatar pita.
