Thinking about just grabbing a takeaway, but on walking down the street noticed this place. Was tempted in by the fact it had a 5 star food hygiene rating on the door. Food was very tasty and thoughtfully presented, and a main course on its own was more than enough to fill our tummies although I can't promise this would... More

I can't believe this terrible restaurant, where I got charged £70 for such small quantity of food. I am not happy with the quality of chewy, dry chicken. I was told to book as 'it would be very busy' when actually there was not a single person there. The prices are way too high and I do not advise a... More

Nice local restaurant, can find easy parking on the street. Interior looks authentic, traditional music in the background, the menu wasn't vast but big enough to choose from when you're not sure what to try! To be honest all Arab style cuisine is the same, therefore its the overall experience which makes it enjoyable. This restaurant is on the pricier... More

We spent the Bank Holiday exploring the Gower part of Wales and this was our best meal. The staff was great, the owner (or manager- I believe he was the owner though) made sure we were taken care of and enjoying ourselves. The ambiance, food, and drinks were great for a laid back night. Would definitely go back!

This restaurant is a little way out of the city centre but worth the effort. Unprepossessing in appearance (inside and out) but friendly and comfortable nevertheless. Food very good although I was somewhat surprised at the limited options available with some typically Lebanese dishes seemingly unavailable. Service was good although we were a little surprised to be asked outright if... More

Called in quite early on a wednesday evening and we were seated immediately. We were pleasantly surprised as we had read that you have to book. The starters and mains were absolutely delicious, just loved the mina special main dish. Infact my friend had 3 starters as her main dish and all the food arrived simultaneously. If you love lamb...
