One of the most famous restaurants in Aleppo, an old and very famous for the good food and atmosphere, serves oriental and western dishes. Locals considers it as good so it is :-)

It must have been my 20th visit or so, and my feedback is always the highest: Most delicious food from a mixed cuisine of Syro-Lebanese, Armenian, and Turkish cuisines, in addition to a professional service. Dont miss their selection of wine. It is certainly a MUST.

Every plate with an other kind of mezze. It was for us a fantastic starting experience to enjoy the Syrian kitchen. If you like all the mixes of chick-pea, eggplants, parsley,... More

Once asking the waiter for the specialities we were told that a strong... More

Excellent food and away from typical touristic itineraries. Perhaps needs a renovation - a bit old fashion - but is an interesting place with local customers.
