Great 5/5😉😄More

Selected for a catch up with friends as it is their favourite lunch spot. Most had the lunch bowls- the pulled lamb served on Egyptian rice was particularly tasty. The chicken skewer mon salad was a large skewer of perfectly cooked juicy chicken on a...good crunchy salad. Portion sizes are very generous. A short alcohol list is perfectly adequate. Water was replaced without requesting which is the mark of attentive waitstaff. Service is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.More

We had lunch and chose the skewer platter for 2. The chicken, beef and lamb were superb with the right level of spice. The dipping sauces were delicious, particularly the chutney. Overall their food is clean, fresh and tasty. Their coffee and sweets are equally...as delightful and of course being a family run business the service is friendly and prompt. Really loved this place and highly recommend.More

Loved the food, we had the Lamb Tagine and Taboon Fish. Both meals were delicious, large dishes at a low cost point. Starters were great, the hummous and lamb dip, and the cheese sambusak, both again decent portions. All in all for 2 people the...total cost was close to $100, which is quite good for what we got. I would have paid more. Ambience was great, staff were very courteous and helpful. We will be going back.More

I dont like to give negative reviews of restaurants in this period of difficult times, but I was disappointed with my meal of lamb shoofta. I found it quite tasteless! My halva icecream for dessert had hardly any halva in it. My husband had crumbed...prawns which he enjoyed. I feel also that it was quite expensive & unfortunately I wont be returning.More
