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

We had a very nice lunch in Toledo at the Alqahira Rincon de Oriente. We were given suggestions on how much to order and it worked perfectly. The restaurant is very quiet - a change from the hustle and bustle of the city, so this was quite welcome. Service was outstanding! Thank you!!

A nice change of pace from the rest of the restaurant experiences in Spain. Great service and food. The food was made with love and care. The decor was also note worthy. We will visit again.

Short menu. Everything was fresh and very tasty. The halal wine is worth trying. Friendly staff. Baklava with the bill was a nice touch.

Had a great dinner here while visiting Toledo with my adult siblings and mom. The portions were a bit small, but that suited us just fine. The falafel was probably the best I've ever had -- incredibly fresh and flavorful. The tea selection was extensive and the little desserts brought with our tea following our dinner were excellent. The service... More

Do not go to this restaurant if you are looking for a plate full of cheap food. The food here is thoughtfully and lovingly prepared by people who appreciate quality ingredients and are proud of what they make. For dinner we ordered the feta and vegetable rolls in phyllo and the chicken chawarma. The phyllo dough surrounding the feta and... More
