We have been ordering in from cafe arabia since many years and are happy that they have always added things to their menu. Shawarma, grill chicken rice, falafel platters, biryanis and hummus are the picks here. Service is a little slow and ambience inside a mall is nothing to talk about. but food is the only focus here, we usually order into our office or walk in for a quick lunch
The quest for the best Shawarmas took me to Cafe Arabia, Mariplex mall, Kalyani Nagar. Using few words, the experience was disappointing. Me and my BF were ravenously hungry and decided to get the food delivered at home. We ordered Chicken shawarmas and a cheese-chilli fries platter. The food took nearly an hour to get delivered but that was not the problem. The food arrived warm and the cheese fries were delicious. But inspite of being amazingly cheesy and spicy, the fries were bordering on soggy and lacking the crunch and bite. The biggest disappointment though was the shawarma. It was a small wrap with very less meat and fries. The sauce (hummus) was decent but was extremely less. The wrap was so dry that it was extremely difficult to chew and swallow. Part of it probably was due to the horrible pita bread. It was flaky, floury and did not even hold together at places. In all we spent quite a bit on the meal (relative to other cheaper options) but the quality of the food was clearly not upto the mark. I have never had the inclination to go there again, so I am not too sure, if it was a one off incident or not. But, the one experience I had there, was, yes, disappointing.
