The restaurant is located at the heart of old Damascus, with old Damascene decoration and atmosphere, yet it one of the best restaurants which serve good quality authentic Arabic food with great service. Prices are reasonable compared to the quality.

We went there back in 2011 in fact, the review says 2013, but I guess it's trip advisors settings. Anyways, the setting is typical of a damascene house with its courtyard and fountain, along with the marble flooring. Plenty of light in the restaurant and the service is impeccable! I believe the price is high for the local community, however... More

Amazing time and tasty food; these are the things you can get when you visit Narenj. It's a very nice restaurant with high service quality. They offer all kind of Syrian and international food and beverages.

This is a superb restaurant in Damascus. The lamb leg in bulgur in a big hot pot is worth trying, as are the kebbeh in yoghurt. Deserts and fruit are complimentary, although you may not have much space after the delicious savoury food. The staff are very delightful, as is the environment.

Looking for Syrian food ? Narnj is the place. It has a typical Damascene menue .Hot freshly baked bread is served by waiters wearing the traditional Damascene clothes. There are many Damascene restaurants in the same neighborhood, however, Narnj stands out as being the most prestigious.
