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

Here we enjoy the taste of authentic Iraqi food, And in particular the Iraqi kebabs and Almeskuv famous fish eaters. But unfortunately the service is not in the expected level.

It was the first restaurant in Dubai that we walked in. Crowded, the food looked amazing, the staff wasn't so friendly. Our waiter recommended us the most expensive dish, but we took it. It was very tasty, but not so hot as it should. The tea after the meal was great. The bread was very good.
