First of all, I would like to give thumbs up gor the environment. Very beautifully decorated to create Arabic mood. Delicious food and beverages. Loved the briyani and grilled meats. Turkish coffee is a must try. Food is very presentable

Very nice for vegetarians travelling in Penang. Hummus, salads, and kebabs were very nice. We will be back.

we visited this eatery - I wouldn't call it a restaurant - and it wasn't a place I would recommend. The food is nothing special and can be had a lott cheaper and better quality, close by.

as we entered the restaurant area i noticed there were ample parking spaces for customers to park which is very rare in penang. usually parking space is very limited. entered the restaurant and was in awe seeing the deco and we selected a seat near the window to enjoy the sea. saw some people do watersports and food was delicious....
