Al Majaz Waterfront in Sharjah will open eight new restaurants and cafés later this year in conjunction with the completion of the extension’s second phase.
Sharjah Investment and Development Authority COO, Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer said: “Al Majaz Waterfront has become one of the leading tourist and leisure attractions in Sharjah, differentiating itself by providing premium and luxury services and facilities, particularly hospitality.
“The selection of regional and international restaurants and cafés perfectly aligns with our strategy of increasing the number of visitors to Al Majaz Waterfront through increasing the number of their options.
“People of all nationalities visit the attraction, and this development caters to different tastes and preferences while achieving the highest levels of customer satisfaction.”
The new restaurants includes Emirati ‘Al Fanar Restaurant & Café’, Lebanese ‘Levantine Restaurant’, Indian ‘Ushna Restaurant’ and Iranian ‘Anar Restaurant’.
The new cafés include the Italian coffee bar ‘Illy Caffè’, ‘Amorino Gelato’ ice-cream and coffee shop, ‘Al Rawi’ library café, and a ‘Dunkin’ Donuts’ franchise.
Al Majaz Waterfront manager, Mohammed Fadhil Al Mazroui said: “We have carefully selected these leading brands to enhance the diversification and present a more international theme with global cuisine.
“By choosing this approach, the catering works on two levels; firstly, it provides the opportunity for local visitors to try new foods and for visitors from abroad, it may bring them high quality dishes that are based on traditional flavours from their home countries. As with all of Al Majaz Waterfront’s qualities, every service is geared to ensuring our customers enjoy the best possible experience.”
The AED 35 million new extension of Al Majaz Waterfront increases the attraction’s total area to 53,000 square metres, and the length of its jogging track to 825 metres.
The extension will also increase the size of the Sharjah Fountain, adding 165 parking lots to accommodate the needs of the park’s increasing number of visitors, as well as adding a number of self-service parking lots.
