Went for a business dinner. We shared a mix of small "salads" which was great for tasting different flavours. Had a mix of kebabs for the main that were tasty as well. Overall a pleasant experience.

Food is ok but nothing really surprising nor special. Relatively expensive for this standard food. Should have offer some traditional arab authentic food

Great food quality and great service. The wait staff are superb. I liked the honest gesture and clarification of our needs and expectations before the advise was dished. We asked for many items and they manage to arrange the appropriate amounts for just the 2 of us; especially the kebabs which were originally 2 per order but was modified to... More

We dined here recently and ordered the stuffed shoulder of lamb, a specialty of the restaurant that is slow-cooked for over 6 hours. Melt-in-your-mouth tender, meat, and the succulent rice was studded with dried fruits and slivered almonds. Malabi for dessert, and an amazing Kunafeh pastry with crispy angel-hair filo dough filled with cheese and topped with honey and pistachios!... More

My partner and I were there for lunch at 13.30, coals weren't heated so lamb kebab was made out to be an ordeal by staff, so we opted for shawarma, then we were rushed through and not even asked what we wanted on our pita so ended up with no salads and a dash of hummus. It wasn't cheap and... More

Good location in the city. Good service. Variety of dishes. Good food. Serves also take away food. Clean place. No parking area in front of the restaurant. Surrounded by a variety of snow making your purchases easy.

Wonderful variety of fresh, tasty salads. Excellent meat dishes and generous portions. A pity they don't serve alcoholic drinks such as beer or wine. And a pity that the total experience was marred by a lazy and indifferent waiter.
