Average food but if desperate, this place has got what you need. I prefer sitting in the outdoor section as opposed to indoor but i have usually just gotten french fries and humos. This place suits the meat and fish eaters, rather than us vegetarians.

Al-Hamraa serves the best fish roasted on a wood fire. And their flat bread baked in an underground oven is delicious. Comes to your table hot from the oven. These foods have a unique taste imparted by the wood, the smoke, and the embers. I could never have enough of those. Visit Al Hamraa in Sana'a, and in Aden too.

The place is not clean enough (which is a major problem in our country) i really hope the management reconsider the food quality and the cleanness.

you can order east food or fast food , so clean and good price, there is also a garden and some toys for kids , the only negative point is there is no rule for smoking so you find a lot of smokers inside

service is poor. used to be a nice Restaurant, but the service started going bad and less and less people started going to it. I went for a dish on the menue and I kept changing my order till i settled for Salad ( didn't turn up good) and soup which was ok.

This place may have seen better days (what hasn't seen better days in Yemen?). We went because it was reputed to be one of the better restaurants that was still open. The food was ok, neither impressive nor terrible. The big problem was it seemed impossible to get anyone's attention to either take the order or pay the bill. This... More
