Il "Mido" è un ristorante che, dal 1990 porta nel cuore di Milano, in Porta Ticinese, a due passi dai Navigli, la più autentica e tradizionale cucina araba. Uno dei primi ristoranti etnici italiani, si è negli anni affermato come punto di riferimento per i milanesi e non solo. Da sempre gestito dalla familgia Nassar propone prelibate delizie medio orientali in un ambiente accogliente e caratteristico.Dalle salsine di antipasto accompagnate dal pane arabo, al couscous con carne, pesce o verdure, fino ai dolci al miele, ogni piatto è rigorosamente fatto in casa.Ad accogliervi troverete Raafat che vi seguirà per tutte le portate con utili consigli, mentre la cucina è gestita personalmente dalla moglie Maha, che custodisce i segreti delle più prelibate ricette.Sapori, musica e ambiente sapranno immergervi in un‘atmosfera indimenticabile.

Try riso sceicco!

We were offered a good selection of appetizers that we enjoyed. We ordered falafel, riso sceicco, vegetable couscous. The rice with pistachios and other nuts was definitely the best dish of the night. It also came with a taste of potatoes filled with cheese and fried, which were also delicious. The... read more

We absolutely loved the complete menu they offered to taste the main arabian dishes. tha couscous was amazing, and the whole menu was super! big portions...I didn't finish mine:(( and affordable price. the location is not new and absolutely not fashion....but when you start to eat you will forget about it!

We absolutely loved the couscous and the maze platter. What I didn't like was the service. The owner is quite chatty, but he will sell you what he actually wants you to have and won't really help you go for something else rather than the set menu (this is why I rated it with 4 and not 5 stars). I... More

I used to live above the Mido for one year, but never been there during that period. And it's a big regret now that i'm living 150 km away! Mido has a great egyptian kitchen: very good starters will welcome on your arrival then you can combine various traditional dishes by yourself or choose from the various combined menu. very... More

the guy barely speaks Italian but manager to make you feel comfortable and not puzzle by a complicate Arabian list. Food is heavy to digest but not the chef's fault: that is Middle-East food. In exchange you get very good service from a family-owned place that likes its job: mum's in the kitchen, dad serves and sonny is at the... More
