It hurts my soul to watch people miss places that want to not only bring in new concepts to Dubai but also serve the population in a way that makes them feel at home. Earlier this week I had the pleasure of visiting Gogryroz tucked in a corner of JLT cluster D with reference of a trusted friend. Now I know what you’re thinking, there might be some already out in Dubai serving variations Gyro meat. However, this was my very first time trying it out and regret I wont!
You know what tastes better than good food, a good experience. I’m also a sucker for art of story telling, the team there takes pleasure in a few minutes of story time that revolves around the original concept. (* the “also” is in addition for food, if you didn’t already guess it)
Alright, Alright, Alright. I’m getting to the food alright!
We ordered 2 variation of each specials on the menu. Let me just begin by saying their meat is quite tender and delicious. Also, very polite to the stomach if you know what I mean.
Sandwiches : The Mayan Myth (Lamb version) and The Ottoman Odysseys ( Chicken version). Both the sandwiches were different from what I’ve eaten so far. As much as I loved Mayan Myth and love red meat! The Ottoman Odyssesys was just too good to be so true. Absolutely delicious and extremely tender. The eggplant combination worked incredibly well.
The Ottoman Odysseys (Chicken version) AED 32
Extremely tender meat wrapped in doner pocket bread with tomatos, pickles, roasted eggplant sauce and tomato sauce.
The Mayan Myth AED 32
Delicious meat wrapped in flour tortilla with the almighty condiments chipotle salsa, gaucamole and jalepenos
Salad Platter and Gyroz Platter along with Mint Laban. All platters come with a choice of sauces made in house.

Mint Laban (SOO Refresshing)
Last but not the least dessert! ( what an over used line! couldn’t help it) Even though they don’t have a huge variety of desserts here (understandable) my sweet tooth was quite pleased with both the Oreo cheese cake and the interesting combination of Jelly, laban and biscuit base. It certainly pleased my taste buds.

Laban, Digestive base and jell trifle. Just the right amount of sweet!
My visit there was intentional as I wanted to continue reviewing places around town. Which is why we decided to try a variety of things in order to experience their range of products. All this together could prove to be slightly pricey for two people in which case get either the sandwich or the platter. For the money you pay the food is extremely filling and quite satisfactory.
I made sure I packed the food and the sauces. I ended up using the sauces for all sorts of meals during the next few days. I loved em!
All in all it’s a must visit. Given the fact that it’s quite new, the place is definitely showing a lot of future potential. As for me, I’ve definitely connected. I’m a vibe person, this tribe has my vibe!
I’d give it a 4/5 because it’s new but it’s a breezier for the freezer. A complete chill out spot which is a work in progress. Can’t wait to see more of gogyroz spreading around town.
Happy meating Ya’ll
Until next time
