“You´ll go for the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

I had ordered the home delivery once and decided to visit the restaurant.

Don´t expect a fancy restaurant in a trendy neighborhood with top notch service. You go there for the food and period.

I enjoyed the dishes, not cheap but worth it.

If you like Arabic food , you won´t regret going there.

“Not What We Expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

After seeing this rated #3, we were certain we had to hit this restaurant. When we arrived to this location, we were a bit surprised. It was more of a deli/bakery type set up where you order your food and sit down. The atmosphere was more cafeteria style, not very warm or comfortable. This isn't the #3 restaurant in Campinas. More of a casual quick meal. Food was good, not great. The owner was a great host. He was the only "English" friendly person at the restaurant and he helped quite a bit making sure everything went well. That was really the highlight of this experience.

“Very good syrian-lebanese style food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

I haven't been to the restaurant, but used the home delivery service several times.
the food is very well prepared, perfectly seasoned. If you like this cousine, it's a must try.
Highlights for the closed beef 'sfiha'. The best I've ever had.

Totally recommend.
