The event kicked off with a powerful speech from Salim Eceolaza, Managing Director of Simbisa brands. “The Grilll Shack offers a predominantly meaty menu of steaks, ribs and burgers in a casual yet industrial setting,” said Salim.

“We’ve been training Head Chef, Septa Williams for many years. He was pulled out of Kenya then sent to Dubai for eight years to prepare for this. That’s how forward looking we were,” he added.

Rythms Unlimited band entertained the guests with renditions of different genres which complemented the relaxing ambience and lighting.

Other highlights of the night were a couple dancing salsa to a Spanish number and the staff who also entertained us with a dance much to the excitement of the guests.

The restaurant has a comprehensive menu with starters ranging from spring rolls to prawns, to full course meals such as texas steak, pork ribs and tantalizing desserts.

The staff led by General Manager, Wesley Baleta would also walk around to check whether the guests were enjoying themselves.
