Have been here at three occasions over the past years. It was not bad, but in price-quality ratio I'd prefer bigger servings for the price. In addition my friends like falafel, they said their meals were ok, but as I prefer meat without bread and stuff, it was nothing special and I left hungry.

We went to this restaurant after a meeting. The taste is good but for me the size is too big. Waiting time also a bit long since they were freshly prepared and during dinner time there were many visitors

Came here on a Friday evening and the place was very busy - always a good sign! Fancied an alternative to German food ( which I also enjoy :-) but had recently had too much of ! ) The waitress was very good and gave us English menus and suggested a yummy little pastry as a starter.

Fresh good Mediterranean food, pretty much standard, slightly overpriced, more diner than restaurant

There are better kebabs around. The bread was somehow hard and seemed not be that fresh. Otherwise it was good. A bit pricy with 4€ for a kebab but that looks like the nirmal price in the old town...

Went here twice during my five day stay in Heidelberg! Affordable and plentiful, it's a great option and it's very filling!

Unfriendly personel. You are treated bad if you complain (even as a local customer!). Bad price/quality. No hand washing between touching money and preparing food. There are much nicer places nearby.
