The food was amazing! And so cheap! You can have a full stomach after walking through the streets and just spend a fraction of what you would have in a restaurant! The grills are must-try item! And the snacks are yummy yummy too!

There is truly no reason to visit this area. Many shops, many pick pockets, street food you won't want to eat.

Visiting the Muslim Quarter after dark is very colourful with heaps of people selling things and places to eat. It’s closed to traffic so easy to walk around
