Being originally from a Mediterranean country, I am very critical of fish served in restaurants. Sanobar's sultan ibrahim and hammour are grilled to perfection. I absolutely love it. Usually Dubai restaurants offer fine dining dishes, but I really do miss a simple fresh grilled fish. Sanobar is the place that provides it for me!!

If u want simple dishes, fresh seafood in a simple local is the right place! Recommended "Special Sanobar", big portion and low price.

If you like sea food, Sharjah offers a lot of nice restaurant. This one ws recommended to us. However the selection of fish / seafood was very disappointing. The service was extremely bad, and it is overpriced compared to other restaurants serving better quality fish. Won't return

We went as a family of four and ordered one appetizer: vine leaves, and two entrees: grilled shrimps and grilled hamour. To those who are unaware, the restaurant serves complimentary appetizers and salads with entrees, like hummus, pita (khubus), cabbage salad, pickles etc. Everything on the table was delicious. Our server was really sweet and friendly. She really made our... More

I liked the design of it - creates a feel of an oasis with all the greenery among the surrounding sands. As title says, we only had breakfast there, so can't judge its seafood selection, but one thing IS pretty clear - the place is expensive with prices ranging from 70 to 200 Dhs (from USD 20 to 60) per...

I can't stop coming here for the amazing sea food they make us every time and at the end of the meal they put us the most delicious aish al saraya sweet. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The best time to come to Sanobar is in the cool months when you can sit outside. Sanobar does grilled fish the best. They have a large selection of fresh local fishes. After selecting your fish, the chef cooks it on the outside fire where you can watch. Other items on the menu (prawns, squid, etc.) are not exceptional. You... More
