Good Theme...Lacks Variety

Most of the menu consists of middle eastern dishes, other than that you only have a choice of fries and pizza. Good theme of Middle eastern culture, opens till late night everyday.

Liked it's exotic interior and music but the food and service were lousy. I don't think I would come back.

Café Habibi has the best kebabs I think. Tender, spicy and juicy. And the humus is smoother than most, going down very well with the pitta bread. Their coffee and tea are strong and tasty, just as it should be. Sheesha smokers will also not be disappointed!

This is NOT an Arabic restaurant. Have had BETTER Shawarmas in non-'arabic' restaurants. Food is way overpriced and is totally not worth the money... Mocktails..I did not try (rather never dared) but my friend, she found it okay. Sheesha - i've had better. Food- i've had better - Shawarmas here are a joke!!! Drinks - i've had better.

We thought of having early lunch at this joint next to the matatu terminals along Westlands road and we were not disappointed. The chicken was tender and the service was equally acceptable.

The place claims to be serving Arabic cuisine, but alas......what you get is badly prepared food. Went there with friends and ordered the following: Fattoush, Chicken shawarma, Arayes, Chicken wings. The fattoush was bland, no seasoning, no lemon, no flavour. Chicken shawarma was just pieces of chicken tossed in a pan with some salt, again no marination, no grilled taste.... More

I spent the afternoon there yesterday and had a shisha and drinks. The atmosphere is laid back, there is always help on the background waiting to serve you. Well maybe its because there werent much people in the afternoon too. Overall not a bad place for a shisha.
