Interesting and authentic

A very ornately decorated restaurant to make the experience of eating authentic arabic food all the better. A good choice of taster menus and all the food is delicious, although the desserts were a little too sweet for our taste. Have been twice and will definitely be going back again!

We asked for the degustation menu, it was all alright and the quantity was OK. We liked the decoration and the music was even better. The service was kind.

The restaurant was empty (only two tables occupied) and we had full atention of the staff. It looks like family-run business and everyone is very polite, with warm welcome. We decided for the menu Kalifa and had many arabic dishes served. They were all very tasteful, including orange and lime juice. This menu is quite demanding task for ordinary eater... More

This place is a little difficult to find, but well worth going to! The food is amazing and a great departure from your standard Spanish fare. The staff is always very nice, and the service is excellent. Be aware that there is no alcohol served, but there is a great ginger drink that I recommend trying! I have been here... More

We came to this Arab / Moroccan restaurant for my birthday and we had a fantastic set meal which consisted of humos, salad, chicken dishes, noodle courses, small dessert and tea. We thoroughly enjoyed the flavours of the dishes and the variety of textures. The staff were quick and attentive and the place is really beautifully decorated. I would recommend... More
