Wonderful

This is a traditional Syrian restaurant with all the Shami foods you can expect. Nice setting and service. In Ramadan they are one of the few restaurants that serve full Iftar meal (not just Harira etc.) and are open to Fajr. It is always booked out and it is recommended to book a table on the day.

Got so sick and tired of Moroccan food that I was craving a mezze platter and falafel, because this is my favorite cuisine. Very nice staff. Excellent food and refreshing drinks. Easy to find as well

I have lived long in the gulf countries and had and still have family from the sham countries "Al Sham (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine Country's)" who are the heart of their delicious shami dishes, the is one of the few places where you have a real shami chef with all the skills to craft the best of Al Sham.

Food is absolutely delicious, to such an extent that even the water tastes better :) The only thing on the negative side i can mention is they don't have a queue... More
