Simple menu, nice food, great location just off the Cathedral, excellent service. Food could be a little bit spicier for my taste.

This restaurant is Muslim owned so they don't serve alcohol. We tasted several items on the menu and they were all excellent. However the servings are not very large. That allows you to sample the food. The price is a bit steep for what you get, but since you're not paying for alcohol, it all works out in the end.... More

A small and intimate restaurant done out in calm, tasteful way. The food is beautifully presented - items on the menu are standard for this type of cuisine, but made to feel special by the addition of extra dips and a thoughtful approach to the overall experience. It's not cheap - you're paying a fair bit extra for small-ish portions... More

We also based our visit off of TA recommendations and were happy we did. The smallest details are considered here, with quality being the first concern, as the owner admitted. We had the falafel and ground beef with Arab bread, two delicious teas (one cinnamon and orange, the other mint and lime - both refreshing) and the homemade date ice... More

We chose this restaurant on the back of the reviews on TA. I clicked on the iPhone app for the nearest restaurants to the hotel. The first suspiciously only had four excellent reviews from four first time posters, the second nearest was Alqahira. It was less than 100 metres from the hotel, We arrived about 8.15pm and there was bo... More

This was by far the best meal we had in Spain. The schwarma was perfect. The owner was so kind as well, helping us with finding a gift of arabic script, something that our son wanted and we discovered was hard to find. If you're in Toledo, don't miss Alqahira! You won't be disappointed.

My friend and I found the recommendation on TA and agree with the reviews. Mr Sayed ensured our experience was authentic and comfortable while we tried new delicious foods. We highly recommend this restaurant! Two Hot Olives - Orlando, Florida

Discover this little gem yourself. The small dishes are very tasteful and of perfect quality. Try the home made baklava and Egyptian coffee. This is absolutely a perfect place for diner.

One of the best meals we have had in years of travel and dining out. We were made to feel very welcome at the end of a long day of walking beautiful Toledo - all due to Mr. Sayed being friendly, and in helping us make choices from his small but tantalizing menu. The food was perfection - flavorful and... More
