A taste of the Middle East/North Africa without going there!

A really busy restaurant but well worth the experience. We went here 2 out of the 3 nights we were in Rotterdam. The restaurant is on 3 floors and out on the street and was always heaving. No problem getting a table for 2/3 people at even busiest times, unless you are a large group. Not a fancy... read more

The restaurant was very busy the evening we were there, so we were sent to sit downstairs. if you want a better table make sure you order one in advance. The service was very quick and helpful. Prices are very affordable, and portions are large. The food itself, unfortunately, was average. It is very colorful, but don't expect a chef's... More

Bad and rude service, bad yet overpriced food, uncomfortable seats. Most people in Rotterdam know by now that it's not good.

If you want Mediterranean-Arabic cuisine in an excellent setting, look no further. Perhaps the most famous restaurant on the Witte de Wit street, the restaurant has rightfully earned that reputation. Great food - the lamb especially is to die for. Good kebabs, nice wine collection and an very friendly staff. Make sure you make reservations when travelling in big groups... More

I am not very passionate of big and popular restaurants. I went to this restaurant for a family party, and it was a pleasant surprise: good service and organisation (something that you expect in this type of restaurants) and an excellent quality of food (something less usual in these big and busy places). Recommendable!!

No complaints at all, great food and fantastic service. We all loved our food and the bustling atmosphere, but not the place to go for a quiet romantic meal. Definitely be back

Large friendly restaurant with a large menu and pleasant, efficient staff. The service and the food were both very good. Middle eastern food. Substantial portions. Nice for lunch or dinner.

The first and the only time I had an opportunity to go to this restaurant was in Dec 2014 and have been meaning to go back ever since. The food is spectacular (try the beef ribs) and the price very reasonable. The place is always packed (even on Sundays) so make sure to book your place in advance.
