So this may be in a bit of a rubbish area and probably isn't the most enticing of restaurants in Manila, however the food here is excellent. I've visited a couple of times and tried a variety of dishes, the Falafel is the best i've ever had crispy and very fresh. You can sit in or takeaway. The fresh juices... More

A friend recommended us to try this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Their food really tastes good and prices are reasonable. Serving size is of right amount too. First time to try their kebab with basmati rice with curry instead of butter and it tastes good too.

I love eating here! The food is excellent and it's value for money. I recommend their Shawarma Rice and Kebab sets paired with rice or bread. So delicious! The service could be improved tho. Sometimes the waitstaff take a long time to bring the bill and the change. But it's a minor nitpick. Definitely check this place out if you're... More

Don't let the terrible location, the uncreative name, or the not-so-enticing ambiance faze you. This is by far one of the best restaurants in the city to grab Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes. There's really not much to add to that. The prices are incredibly reasonable, the serving sizes large, and the taste is authentic. If you're in the area,... More

While we were searching for a Restaurant that serves Halal food we came across this restaurant. The restaurant serves Arabic, middtirian food and juices. Shisha is being served there in the ground floor. However, everything was ok except rice which seemed to be made on the previous day and just was heated.

Fed up with pork adobo? Try this Arabic simple place in Ermita. Portions are large and food is excellent. Their spicy beef shawarma is specially delicious. They are on both sides of the street but on the most "restaurant-like" side they have an open terrace upstairs which is pleasant. Service not very friendly though

Authentic Arab restaurant in the city. 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Nice ambience in a busy road. Great menu both in Arabic and English language. Many Arabic dishes and other food items. Shisha is available as well. Ordered Sheesh Tawooq and Seafood Biryani. It has Halal food. It comes with salad and bread. Nice place. Highly recommended.
