I definitely recommend this place if you like Algerian food: very tasty and affordable price. A big thank you to the owner, who opened the place just for us to celebrate a birthday. Also very impressed by the decoration. Excellent!

Khamsa is well worth your time and money. Bring cash and, if you want, alcohol (none is served here). You don't feel like a customer here; you feel like a guest. The host/owner/manager/chef/waiter is a lovely guy who clearly knows what he wants: friendly customers...More
