Yemeni food that is so delicious, if you are a fan of bukhari rice, Mandi, Mutton and Lamb meat you will love this place, they also serve chicken Mandi and Madfoon, I would highly recommend the Haneed dish and the meat okda with vegetables.

Amazing food, ethnic Yemeni food. Ask for Meat Mandi with ugda. The meat is slow cooked and the stew Ugda is served boiling in a hot plate. Avoid operating heavy machinery afterwards.
