“Great Cause/Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The proceeds of this restaurant go to former street workers. That was a plus for my friend and me, we wanted to support businesses like that. I was disappointed they didn't have the Egyptian Licorice tea. They did have fresh juices that quenched your thirst on a hot day after the Russian market. We got dessert and it was every bit yummy. It's a nice relaxing place for a spell.

“Yejj under rated hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

we stopped here for coffee whilst browsing around the Russian Market and were so impressed we went back for dinner.
Some very special dishes high quality food and reasonable prices, whats not to like.

“Give it a try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

The place looked like an oasis in a grey neighborhood.I tried the lemon an honey chicken which was superb. Price is a little bit higher but serves apparently a higher purpose (which I applaud!). Service good be quicker (learning curve?) But when on holiday who cares about time really? The place is clean and the food is good. Give it a try! I would eat there again any time!
