“nice kebab, but a bit noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

the syria restaurant with pretty good kebab and bbq lambs. Chinese belly dancer not really up to my taste, and music a bit too noisy...rest of arabs will stare at you if you dress too sexy.

“Expensive and Average Middle Eastern Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Well, I suppose in Shanghai you can't expect to get the best Middle Eastern food. So we should not have had too high expectations. But the prices are high and the portions are small. It seems that this is a bit of a tourist trap, with the belly dancing, etc.

“Go with peopel who know the Middle East”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I have been a few times with good freinds and large parties and had the pleasure of the food being ordered by someone who knows. Always good fun but I avoid the "mountain oysters"

“Nice place for a change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

Good food. Nice belly dancers ( Chinese) Book the better seat in advance to be near the stage. The dancer can come to your table to dance as well.

“Just a different alternative”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011 via mobile

The restaurant give a wide selection of middle eastern food but mediterranean. Food is ok bit not so good for value.
The belly dancing experience is limited with several minutes.
If you want to smoke nargile, you may choose to visit otherwise time loss.
Service is slow and in general not so clean.
