Middle Eastern
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.

My friend and I shared chicken and lamb kebab. The meat was dry in both of our meals. My husband had the beef schwarma that was also tasteless and dry. The french fries were excellent as well as the felafel pizza.

about the fifth time we've eaten at Shishka, even though we are not Lebanese, as is most of the clientele. They were out of the Cornish hen dish, so I had the chicken. It was OK. Olives and pita bread are supplied; they are good. It is in a mall, many sit outside, especially the hookah and other smokers. we'll go again.

Good Mediterranean fare but a very casual atmosphere - would recommend it more for take out versus dining in.

A great go-to place. Delicious, authentic food. Pleasant outdoor seating area, if desired.
Excellent lunch specials at a fair price. Hookah is available if desired.

The mezza came at different times, the pita was stale, the entrees were good. The belly dancer was a nice surprise.

We’ve eaten at Shishka a number of times and have never been disappointed. Tucked away on a shopping mall, an unexpected delight. Everything served is very fresh and well presented. A wonderful assortment of aromas and tastes. Highly recommended.

The service was prompt and friendly. The food is very good and authentic. Shawarma sandwiches are only served until 5 pm in the restaurant and only by take out afterwards. Highly recommend

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!

Good food. Excellent service.
Low end center. Lousy interior.(Hear they are moving soon.)
Need to update ambiance to modern-not even close.
A little pricey considering the above.
Good luck. Will visit new location.

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.

Food and service was fine. The very pretty and energetic dancer was an unexpected plus. She entertained the crowd tirelessly. There was a birthday party at one of the tables outside (in the middle of the mall). Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

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!

Food is delicious and prepared fresh. We have been eating at Shishka's for a number of years and it is always consistent. Staff is friendly and a terrific belly dancer on Saturday night. Make reservations!
