Good Seafood

This is the first time I've been to an Iraqi restaurant and my visit wasn't a disappointment. Their seafood is very good, service is equally fantastic

No doubt the food was good ..... but the fish on stone (their specialty dish), was nothing outstanding. Considering the place, which is Deira, and the ambiance and service, this place is grossly overpriced.

A most interesting and new menu direction. Preordered 'hot coals' cooked fresh water Carp... Service very good. Abundance and variety of food. Ambience suits the type of restaurant, Altho tables seem very close together.

It is a habit for me to dine there on a monthly basis. Great food, lovely atmosphere and the Iraqi traditional design is among the best features of this restaurant, whether the brunch in Daira or Jumairah.

Been there with my family in Eid Holidays (Sep). I read a lot about the restaurants and many of my friends have recommended it. I can confidently say that the food is very tasty, although I thought that it's a bit pricey. The first thing I noticed when I first entered is the staff/waiters: NO SMILE at all. It wasn't... More

I'm Iraqi but I have been living in London more than 10 years and it's really hard to find an Iraqi restaurant that has a good authentic food.

Here you can find good and delicious food, a mix of Iraqi and lebanese i can say. The service is really good and their bread is really really tasty! The only negative thing is that the food is bit heavy
