Too too costly and worthless. Traditional Arabic taste is not there.for sumptuous dinner it cost 50 euro per head. Not recommended for middle and upper middle class. Staff do not know the mosque which is near.

Went for dinner. The place is very small, so I suggest reserving a table, even though they don't speak english very much. We ordered mezzes for two people (half cold, half warm) and we were amazed by the quality of food. Quantity was OK, we ate the right amount and we were happy with it. There was strong smell in...

That is the sign that stopped us. We only found the real name of the restaurant when we asked for a business card upon leaving. We were looking for another restaurant but gave up the search as soon as we saw the sign - so excited. Very small place, we were lucky they could seat us. Obviously locally popular. We... More

This place offer the best Shawarma ever, and the falafel is extra ordinary too, it comes with good service and at an unbeatable price. The actual place is nothing special, rather small but the food is great.

Dishes at Tassnim are relatively simple yet tasty and very Close to what you would taste in Lebanon. The grilled meat is nothing Special, but the Mezzeh are really good. The sweets are also very good. Unfortunately, no alcohol is served at Tassnim, which does not seem to be an issue for many (especially if you drive and if want... More

A couple of restaurants selling kebab in the city but this is the only one with Halal sign on its entrance. Fortunately, the food was pretty good and reasonable. Nice ambience but very small place which only able to accommodate 20-25 customers at any time. So, make advance booking or come early for lunch & dinner. Accessible by bus with... More
