I must say that was the most delicious chicken shish I have ever tasted. It... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant and on the recommendation of a colleague we made a group booking. The ambience is nice and although on this visit the belly dancer was not performing we were sure to have a great night.the menu is attractive and varied, however the dishes were generally disappointing. The Calamari greasy and the lamb... More

This was followed by marinated calamari, spinach pide and a mixed grill platter, among other dishes and... More

Our party of three lunched here on Monday 29 December 2014. This was our third visit to this restaurant. Unlike our previous two lunches at this place where we dined inside the restaurant, this time we were ushered to an outdoor table under a shade cloth. We were informed that the inside (which was totally devoid of any patrons) was... More
