If you love lamb it's a place to go. Lamb hanith is great, served with rice, veggies, salad, lamb soup and amazing house-baked bread! And spiced tea is great too. Service is fast, food is amazing and staff is friendly.

Prices are good with this place serving stews and dips representative of Yemen. I never had this food before but was spicy and delicious. Will return again. Very low key relaxing place.
