“Freshest seafood in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

We love the fresh made to order seafood at this typical Middle Eastern restaurant. Service is pretty good but the decor is dated. Try not to use the washrooms as well. It could certainly use a revamp. The prices are decent 110 AED/kilo for fish. Our favorite is grilled hamra!!

“Fresh grilled fish by the boatload!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

Not much on atmosphere, but all the fresh fish you can eat. Step up to the counter, pick out all your favorite fruits of the sea then tell them how you want it...grilles, baked or sauteed, etc.

Then you order Arabic mezze and nosh until you are ready to burst.

Not much for service and the tablecloth is a bit ratty, but the fresh catch and mezze will keep you happy.
