“Average at Best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2010

This is an old resturant, close to some near by hotels. Food quality is average, I have orderd some grilled lamb meat , Tabbolleh, grape leaves and soup, meat was not tender at all, although it should be, tabbolleh needed extar olive oil, soup was almost cold. There are many resturants in Damascus to, go to this one if you want an average place , expect to pay around $20 per person.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2010

We had lunch once at Abu Kamal, it is a nice restaurant, if you go make sure to sit by the windows, they are facing an intersection so you can people watch, Car watch (Since they have very nice cars), and the nature is nice in the background.
Like I said we went after the regular lunch time, it was quite, I believe if it was a busy day it would be a little crowded, but I am not sure.
The food was good. It was not expensive at all! all in all Syria is not expensive at all!Cool

“A superb restaurant in Damascus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2010

I went there twice before and whatever I would say is not enough

exemplary food and service BUT 2 points I have noticed

1- It can be crowded at lunchtime especially on weekends Fridays here so the service would be be somewhat slower yet the food is worth waiting for.

2- It should not be mixed with Kamal restaurant which is a 7 min walk from it

Kamal restaurant has a nicer brighter ambience with nearly the samr quality and price
