The place has a very nice outdoor seating which is very pleasant for sitting in the good weather (usually winter time in Abu Dhabi). Ideal for Shisha lovers but the food is not grea, and the service is slow as well.

I would visit there anytime as the atmosphere is great, the food is good and the shishas are good enough. The service could be better, but it seems they prefer the Arabs more over the other nationalities, which doesnt bother me. Parking is plenty, however best to park in the public parking nearby rather than find one right next to... More

Hi, The place smelled creepy and the staff is very untrained, they have no respect for clients. They insert their choices on the customer plus we bought a deal no where mentioning that shisha is mandatory and went with our 6 months old baby and the manager insisted us to have shisha otherwise we can't sit there. We had an... More

Four of us rocked up for a late lunch. We were there on recommendation of a friend and were looking for some authentic food. We weren't disappointed. This is a large airy casual place to eat with music videos playing on tv's in the background. Be warned it's fairly basic but devoid of tourists and there appeared to be a... More
