“Delicious food, great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

I cannot agree more with all the excellent reviews here on TP. Based on those we went to this little restaurant and we had a delicious dinner and experience. The owner is just born to be a host and he made it possible for us to taste everything on the menu, in smaller portions, accompanied by a home made green ice tea with mint. So tasty! We also enjoyed the date ice cream and a lovely black tea after dinner. All this for just over 40 euros, just perfect! I highly recommend this lovely restaurant when you're in beautiful Toledo!

“Tasty and charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We went to the restaurant following Tripadvisor recommendations and we were excited. Outstanding service and atmosphere with delicious food and beverages. Decorations in dignified oriental style with a lot of adorable details, one room with 3-5 tables is cosy. The owner/decorator and waiter is one person. He is super friendly and noble at the same time and kindly explained the menu and adviced on everything. We shared the lentil soup and felafel, drank ibiscus ice beverage, two types of coffee and received baklava as a complement. It came to 25 euro. So, price/quality balance is perfect! We advise the place to everyone!

“Well worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Only 6 dishes to choose from but they are (presumably all) absolutely delicious; the falafel & chicken kebab certainly are! Outstanding service and atmosphere help make it a necessary stop when in Toledo. The owner is very friendly and will kindly explain the menu (and advice on the various teas). We shared the soup, felafel, kebab and ice cream as well as both having a cold tea with meal & hot tea after which came to about 40 euro. Wish we could return soon...

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We have decided to have lunch in this restaurant based on the reviews on tripadvisor and we were definitely not disappointed. We have tried the lentil soup, chicken kebab, falafel, date ice cream and all of them tasted great. Mr. Fathi knowing that we come from Turkey, he played some nice Turkish music in his restaurant as a favor. Looking forward to dining in your restaurant again.

Thanks for the hospitality.

“An oasis in Toledo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The food is really good and the hospitality is amazing. I love the teas, diad and alhamra teas and the baklava. They are pretty tasty.

I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who visit Toledo, especially my muslim fellows.
