At around 22:30 we were looking for a place to have dinner. Almost everything was closed but we luckily found this restaurant. We were welcomed very friendly by the host. We had an amazing dinner of different types of sate. Definitely recommend by us! Our host, Franky was very kind and we had a very nice conversation. The restaurant itself... More

We visited Samarra at the weekend for lunch. It was our first visit for some time. The place still holds the romantic charm of the 1001 Nights Tales with fantastic decor and paintings reflecting a bygone age when Persian kings ruled most of the known world. The food was filling and tasty. We loved the prawns both coated in coconut... More

A big expensive rip off ! As my partner said, perhaps management wrote the other reviews for this restaurant - or how could our experience be so different from the others here ? Waiter spilled an oil bottle and spent the next half hour seeing to that. I ordered sparkling water but when the bottle came , still closed, I... More

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor and thought it sounded intriguing after lots of descriptions of it having the ambience of an opium den + a rooftop bar. It really did feel like that - totally beautiful inside with lots of clouds of smoke/incense. A lot of dark corners - we had to get out my colleague's phone torch... More

Pros: The atmosphere and detail put into each art restaurant. . We started with cocktails on rooftop. Since we don't drink alcohol happy to see a wide range of cocktails compared to other places. Then moved down to main course on 2nd floor. They had remembered my name from booking and drew it onto a leaf. Manager was Frankie who... More
