Issa, è innanzitutto un amico che vi accoglie, con la moglie Luciana, nel loro caldo, esotico ristorantino. L'atmosfera che potrete condividere con gli altri ospiti, vi porterà certo a tramutare una occasionale visita, fatta per soddisfare una curiosità per dei cibi esotici ed una cucina etnica diversa, in una piacevole e ricorrente abitudine; non solo per assaporare nuovamente gli splendidi aromi sapientemente miscelati ma sopratutto per godere del calore umano e della passione che Issa saprà comunicarvi.
