A typical Yemeni specialities restaurant

Don't miss the lamb cooked in leaves, the large and thin typical bread, the chicken in rice dish, the arika dessert. But most important, the chairless table, where you sit on carpets and eat by hands, like a real beduin...

This restaurant was referred to us by one of our taxi drivers who was from Yemen. the reviews are spot on and we also had a great experience. Don't worry about not being able to speak the language or read the menu. You can just point and the servers and staff are more than accommodating to help you. We had... More

By the parking entrance, with a sign only in Arabic, there's this great cheap food restaurant, one of the best places to taste the flavors or Arabia with a low budget. Eat with your hands and seat on the floor for a more complete experience. Even if you don't understand the menu, choose a bit of everything.

If you are a conventional cuisine eater forget about this place. This restaurant is for food, like real food and for people that love to indulge themselves to big proportions. They've got two sitting areas one with tables and the other one more traditional majilis where you can actually unleash the glutton in you. It is a modest place, one... More

It is so good, that I came back for several times. They are specialized in Yemeni food. Two seating areas, traditional rooms on the floor or normal table setting. be ready , it is a busy restaurant! Recommend to try their bread.. we tried the chicken mazbi and chicken mandy ( it comes with flavored rice)

First of all, it's worth saying that Tripadvisor has the location wrong on its map. Check out the real location, next to the main car parking area, on the restaurant's webpage. The restaurant is hard to find if you can't read the name in Arabic. Inside, it's usually quite chaotic and places are hard to find, especially on Friday evenings.... More

Try the chicken Mandi or buried chicken.. It's their must try. Most of dinner time the place will be full. They have 2 dinner setting.. On the table or you can sit down on the floor with Arabic style carpet and let your dining experience begins. The price is super affordable.

I stopped by for dinner at this place last night. I was alone. There were 2 seating options: Sit at a table, or sit on the carpeted floor (traditional style). I chose the table. The service was pretty fast. I ordered the Chicken "ogdan," which the waiter, in broken English, described as "curry." It came out pretty quickly (in less... More
