Howlak means "around you" in Arabic. We are a location-based restaurant ratings and opinion app that uses visual ratings and short opinion polls to help you quickly discover and share what's around you as you move around your city. The app currently supports 4 cities: Doha, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah with Qatar being the primary launch market. Howlak was founded by a small team of expats and locals who combine a deep understanding or product design and local culture to bring new and innovative products to the GCC market.
