Great way to introduce my parents to middle eastern salads and generous selection of apps! Loved the bread and the fish as well.

The large restaurant is wide enough to sit and talk in private. The food was very good especially the beef cheek. Middle eastern food in highest quality.

This is the best oriental north Arabic food you'll ever taste. Go for their special dishes. Fair prices, not cheap stuffed lamb neck or veal shoulder.
