ESHAK takes a contemporary approach to Middle Eastern cuisine, putting a unique spin on the expected, for a dining experience that is colourful, flavourful and full of laughter.
ESHAK is located in Al Mustaqbal Street, Citywalk 2, a few steps away from City Walk Mall, the dynamic dining and retail hub. It is operated by Bulldozer Group Worldwide, one of the best-respected names in global hospitality, representing its first foray into casual dining.
Dive into a fusion menu that masterfully blends Uzbek, European and Middle Eastern tastes, re-imagining the traditional whilst staying loyal to authentic roots. Highlight dishes include Daily Pilafs, Mantas, Khachapuris, as well as mouth-watering desserts from Baklava to Chak-Chak and the famous Assal Cake.
They have an interesting Breakfast Menu and there are pictures all over the menu which help you understand what you will be getting. We went for lunch and the place is beautiful with high ceilings, colorful chandeliers and art sprawled against the walls, tables, plates and even the food.
Patata Harra – LOVED THESE!! The spices were perfect and the potatoes were lightly fried.
Fattoush – Marinated tomatoes, cucumber, herbs toasted Arabic bread served with pomegranate dressing.
Muhamara – One of the finest I have had! Chilli paste, bread crumbs, walnuts and olive oil.
Moutabal – Grilled eggplant, tahini garlic and olive oil. I am not a big fan of this dish so i skipped it.
Falafel – Deep fried crushed chickpeas with coriander and onion. Was very crispy and warm till the end.
Hommous – Chickpea puree, Tahini Lemon juice and olive oil. Was super yummy.

Cheese Rokakat – Fried and crispy akawi cheese wrapped in filo dough. I loved this! It was crispy, the cheese was not heavy and did not dry up.
Adjar Khachapuri – Crispy Puff Pastry “boat” with rich sulguni cheese and egg yolk. This was mind blowing! Very crispy and the cheese was amazing.
Cheese Kutabs – Grilled sine dough stuffed with cheese and tomatoes. This was quite thin and soft and i preferred the Adjar over this.
Tiramisu – This was quite good considering it was being served in a Middle Eastern restaurant.
Eshak Crepes – Thin crepe stuffed with delicious soft cream and drenched in berries compote. Very unique dessert and perfect for someone who likes velvety desserts.
Speciality Teas – Served in chemistry lab like flasks, I didn’t get a chance to try this but it looked crazy good.
I would highly recommend this place especially for those groups with varied palettes. The beautiful interiors will add to your amazing experience. The service is a hit and miss.
