About Shishka Lebanese Grill
Shishka Leabanese Grill was established by two brothers Walid and Gus Zabib in 2011 . The Zabib family is originally from the city of Beirut in Lebanon. When they came to the United States, they found that there were only a few Middle Eastern restaurants around, but hardly any of them were really that good. Zabib’s family decided to open a restaurant where you could get a good home-cooked Lebanese meal the way Mom used to make. With our complete menu, you can feast on all the old favorites. Enjoy hummus that is light, smooth, and rich with flavors of garlic and premium olive oil. A baba ghanouj that takes on a smoky flavor, labneh, and lamb prepared every which way, as well as more provocative dishes, such as lamb sausage, stuffed grape leaves, and elaborate hot vegetable combinations, prepared by an attentive kitchen.

Shishka Lebanese Grill Ratings and Reviews
I have been to Shishka several times. It is a great casual and local dining spot.
This is a Lebanese restaurant so in addition to their authentic Lebanese food, there are many
other Middle Eastern options available on the menu.
The restaurant is quite small and sits in a very hard to find place in what is now a defunct
mall on Copans & Federal Hwy. However, if you find it once, I'm sure you'll go there time and time again.
Not a very good Lebanese restaurant with little ambience inside a mall.
The food (chicken shwarma) was dry with no sauce except a version of the Greek skordalia - potato garlic spread. The salad was good and fresh and the french fries were the best of the hot food - some small comfort.
The food is fantastic. Wife had vegetarian platter and I had beef shawarma. The babaganouj was the best I have EVER had anywhere. Taboule salad was very fresh. Shawarma was excellent, not salty or over seasoned. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Place was quiet and not busy but I attribute that to the time and date we went. 5pm on Monday, January 2nd. We will make the drive from Delray Beach again!
Service was very good but food was so so. The babaganoush was a little too garlicky for my taste and the pita was thin and tasteless. I ordered the chicken skewers. There was too much and it was very dry. In spite of the good ratings on line from a number of sources, I would not recommend this restaurant.
This is our second time that we went to Shishka & food was just as good. This time we ordered appetizers & for dinner we had the Okra stew....Fantastic.
We also ordered the chicken Shishka ( very lemon garlic flavor).
We couldn't resist the Baklava. It was one of the best we've ever had & the mint tea was the perfect comliment to our last sweet bite. I highly recommend.
The food was incredible. The Baba ganoosh was delicious & went very well with the complimentary condiments. The chicken shawerma was all white meat & very good. Shish tawook was amazing. I noticed other diners having a dish called shishka chichen. Can't wait to go back & have that. They were out of kenaffeh so we ordered the Baklava. I have to say it was one of the best I've ever had & the tea with mint was a wonderful finish to our amazing dinner. Highly recommend Shishka. Thumps up.
This was the second time we have dined at shishka. The first time was a wonderful experience. This time it was horrible. It was because of the waitress. She brought our entrees out immediately after serving us our appetizers and on a wednesday we were the only couple eating inside so it wasnt that they needed to push us out. We sent back the food and it sat under a heat lamp for 20 minutes. When it arrived at the table it was cold. I should have asked for a new order of food, but instead they took it back and heated up the food. At this point when we got the food the meat was totally tough and dried out since it was cooked twice. For $18 an entree of a little portion of meat, a small ball of white rice and 2 pieces of cauliflower i should have sent it back. Will definitely think twice about going back there or perhaps i need to provide step by step instructions to the waitress to space out our food. We are not in a hurry we are there to dine out and enjoy.
While the location in a storefront within Pompano Citi Centre isn't too inviting once you enter Shiska Lebonese Grill you are made to feel completely at home. The owner made us feel welcome and our server was amazing. The food was delicious and it was fun trying wine from Lebonon. Always good to drink wine from the same country as the food. Just seems to taste better. It is also a hooka bar and belly dancing on the weekend. I am sure the place is a blast on Saturday nights. Don't be put off by the location this place is great!
With a significant Vegetarian option as well as excellent food Shiska is a perfect place for a large family gathering. The food is excellent, the service professional and the wine list long. Its a store front space with outdoor seating at a mall but they manage to put out some very good food. The only negative for some would be that there is Hooka available in the outdoor area so there can be some smoke- We have been back and have enjoyed it both ties
At first I was scared. Being from New York, I'm immediately turned off to any restaurant in a strip center. So I bit my tongue and sat down. Our waitress was spectacular, by the end of the night I wanted to take her home! The food was so fresh and tasty I didn't want to stop! Not only would I recommend this place, but chances are you'll find me sitting at a table there!
We have been regular customers for 4 years and have been pleased each and every time. Customers, staff, and food are friendly. Our food favorites are lsmb shish k as bob, veggie platter, and (best of all) the kibbee niyeah. Food is always hot and prepared to order. We have brought family and friends from all over and everyone has been more thsn satisfied. Saturday night with the belly dancers can't be missed!
Shishka's food is consistently delicious. It's wait staff is helpful and pleasant and they are always pleased to explained to a middle eastern food neophyte exactly what goes into each dish. The restaurant is located in a mall, so lacks the charm found in some other locations, but it is always clean and tastefully done.
As a Lebanese reviewer whois very picky when it comes to Lebanese food, I give Shishka a 4 & 1/2 stars.
Service was so amazing by our server, she explained everything perfectly and went out of her way to help us.
Food was great. The kibbeh, grills, dips,...were delicious. Even the Tabbouleh was almost a home quality for a restaurant.
It is located outside of a mall and it was interesting to have dinner outside while everything is closed around you. Very quite except for the restaurant clients chats with their shishas/hookahs
I had open table reservation and they said they did not take open table reservations on the weekends, but I had one anyway- hence this request. . They seated us outside, but had a huge private party outside, we waited over an hour for our food. It make matters worse the table next to us got there food before us, but they seemed to know the owners or managers. I made this reservation two weeks in advance to be sure to have a good table. It will be off our list for awhile.
This is a fav or a friend of mine and she was so excited for me to try it out. We think they were having an off night. It was a Monday and it was MLK day. We were one of maybe 3 tables in the entire place. The food was very disappointing. We both had the shwarma salad. I asked if they could do shrimp instead of meat or chicken and then quoted me $28!!! $4 more than the shrimp dinner! I opted for the chicken and when our meal was brought out, she brough two plates of meat. When we told her the mistake, the server argued and insisted that we had said meat. When I finally got my meal, we both found our salads to be overly dressed with Sumac. I also didn't like that the pita came in plastic bags and were obviously nuked.
I have to say that - not being familiar with the area - I didn't expect it to be located in a mall. But the restaurant is well setup, comfortable and the food was very very good. I love chicken Shawarma (and still can't forget the place we used to go to 20 years ago in Chicago - this was almost that good!). I would go back in a heart beat.
It was Saturday night and the belly dancer was quite skillful. If *I* tried that trick with the plate of candles on my head, there would have been 3 fire trucks there in 10 minutes!
Both, my husband and I have had better Lebanese food. The beef Shawarma was so dry, the little bit of tahini sauce could not make up for it. It also came only with fries and no veggies, as it should have. The kibbeh was also on the dry side, and the lebnah salad was nothing but kefir with cucumber pieces. I guess it's ok for a lunch, but location and food don't make for a nice dinner.
The Lebanese wine we ordered was fine.
