I got a food poising the day before New Years. It was a horrible experience but if I want to be fair , I have tio say that the service was actually pretty good.

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.

Best Lebanese food I ever had..! Took veggie assortment (around 14 euros) + irran drink ..combination was very good. Spicy potatoes were awesome..try it. No doubt you will enjoy this place. But..we had bad service (we had a fat lady serving food...we felt she was a bit racist)..! hope she doesn't bring the restaurant down.
