If you’re heading to City Cinema Shatti your gaze might just be distracted with this flashy giant board screaming GRAFFITI adjacent to the cinema. Located in a prime area, Graffiti Burger Bar specializes in creating efficient, diverse and high quality burgers. And if you are a burger lover, you will know it!
The restaurant was previously a well known sheesha joint called Deyar. And if you have visited Deyar you will be in for shock to see what Graffiti Burger Bar’s magic wand has turned the place into.
A boisterous burger joint with hushed lights, pop songs blasting and the smell of burger pervading throughout the restaurant. If you remove all the furniture, you would find a perfect nightclub ready.
Adding to the cray setting were led writings, burlesque mirrors and a vintage faux van! You can even sit inside the van and dine! No kidding.
The guys at Graffiti Burger Bar have kept their menu pretty simple – in a great way. Offering a bunch of burgers and a decent drinks list that’s not “scary complicated” keeps things moving and really embodies “quality over quantity”. And of the items had really hip names like – GLAD.HE.ATE.HER, Beauty and The Beef and Alex in Wonderlamb hahaha.
For starters, we chose Queens BLVD which certainly blew our minds. The appetizer was a combination of potato wedges, mushrooms, grilled beef strips, onions and jalapenos smothered with cheese. This dish was criminal because it tasted so orgasmic but the serving was too little.
Next we ordered Beauty and The Beef which happens to be their popular and most chosen burger. This piece of heaven came on black coloured buns with a beef patty, oozing a load of herb cheese and sautéed mushrooms. The burger was well executed with all its elements spot on.
BTW, you also have a choice to order the burgers in regular sizes or slider style. And since I wanted to try more of their items, I selected the Chick Flick and GLAD.HE.ATE.HER as sliders. I regretted this when they were served though. The sliders were very small and with too little filling.
GLAD.HE.ATE.HER tasted excellent. It consisted of a miniscule char grilled beef slice with cheese and lots of Chipotle wonder sauce. The Chick Flick tasted average. Graffiti Burger Bar even has a lobster burger called Gold Digger which comes in golden buns oooo. Will try that next time!
All the food was delivered to us freshly hot although the wait was quiet long. The staff was friendly and charming, dressed in their flashy Moulin Rouge themed costumes. One of them suggested we take the Texas Chocolate Massacre for dessert. It is their best dessert and the most expensive one too.
It was fresh, hot and oozed goodness. Again, the serving was too small. Although the chocolate and caramel souffle tasted really good I don’t think it was worth OMR 4.100!
I had a splendid evening here. Overall Graffiti Burger Bar is a great for those willing to spend over OMR 5 on burger and chips. It’s an ideal setting for a cool date or party with friends. Excellent food, excellent service and a rocking environment so Graffiti Burger Bar gets the thumbs up from me.
And finally the dinner bill arrived to us placed inside a ladies clutch bag. Hahaha.
Also, where was the graffiti? Didn’t see any.
Total billing for one starter, 1 regular burger, 2 sliders, 1 dessert, 1 soft drink and 1 small water: OMR 15.550
