Nice food, ambience and service, but portions are not too big

Excellent Mid Eastern place in downtown Toledo, just two minutes from the Cathedral (which is, by the way, the highlight of tourist destinations in Toledo, in my view). Service was friendly and professional with good English. The falafel we tried was like never before, lightly fried with herbs not... read more

We had a fantastic visit! We tried a many of the dishes listed on the one page menu, a few at the suggestion of our truly generous host. Every dish was just right, the flavor exceptional. My 5year old is still raving about the swarma, dolma and baklava and the special gift he was given for being a fine diner... More

Food was very tasty and the flavours worked really well together. This is a dry restaurant and while this didn't spoil our meal, the food would have been complimented by a nice beer or glass of wine. The waiter didn't speak much English and got our order wrong. It wasn't an issue as there was plenty of food but when... More

As soon as you walk through the door you could be in Cairo the smell of spices decoration and all very clean. This is not Spanish - Middle eastern food its the real thing. The menu has about 9 dishes but the owner makes everything and ingredients are fresh. I don't have a problem with small menus when the food... More

Really awesome food!! I eat middle eastern food all the time and honestly wished this restaurant was back home. The menu is simple, the atmosphere is relaxing, and the service impeccable. The owner makes you feel right at home and he also speaks perfect English in case your Spanish is not that good. This is my third time in Spain... More

This restaurant is absolutely a hidden gem ready to be found and appreciated.. Mr.Sayed is a so generous with his time and when our companion spilled his heavenly mint and lemon drink on our table He immediately was given another at no cost and the table was cleared. The food was so tasty and so welcomed after walking through Toledo... More

We chose this restaurant on the basis of the very good reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. We were served by the friendly and gracious owner who recommended the dishes. We love Middle Eastern food and were a bit concerned by the short menu but we need not have worried. The Falafels were the best we have... More

We really enjoyed our lunch here, with the delicious home made mint and lemon ice drinks. The food ranged from pretty good to pretty amazing. The fact that they have a separate tea menu with some great choices is also a definite plus. Finally the baklava was also great and not as overly sweet as in some places. Possibly the... More
