Wide menu, family sizes, all can be shared. Tasty middle east food. Great desserts. Any dish is unique and well prepared. Pita is fresh, baba ganoush and hummus are incredibly good. All grill dishes are made on charcoal making them so tasty and original.

The food is very average for Middle Eastern restaurant. Everything we had tried is tasteless. Bad service, everything is in the hurry, as our waiter was busy with many other tables. Very noisy, you can't even talk. We will never come back.
