The food and service is 5 stars. This restaurant used to be an old traditional house in the old city and it is very well preserved. A great experience.

An anonymous door in a quiet back street in the Medinah, reveals an incredible restaurant - a beautiful palace. Open courtyards, private rooms, a huge divan. Wonderful food, great service, unforgettable experience
