The very best of eastern quisine in Cologne! It's very cheap and very tasty a.k.a perfect for students, who would love the ambience as well. Ask for Zimtee when you're there! (Free for the guests)

Nice location for a quick snack, in the heart of the students area and close to the university. The staff is super friendly and while you wait for your food, you are offered a nice little glass with tea. Very reasonable prices. Informal and good.

The first impression was doubtful (lack of hygiene, vegetables didn´t looked fresh). But I gave it the benefit of doubt (tripadvisor comments were so amazing). Bad choice!!!! While we were eating we were surprised by a mouse that was walking on the ground. That just proved that my first impression was right. I don´t recommed this restaurant, unless you really... More

Nice little place with splendid authentic food. I love coming here with my girlfriends since everyone can find something nice in the menu and the platters are such a communicative way of dinner. Tastes so good and the service is great. Can highly recommend!

'Hi, I'd like to pay.' 'That sounds wonderful!' 'Well the food was wonderful.' This is how the conversation went after sitting down to a quick lunch. The place is packed with students from the nearby university and abuzz with conversation and laughing as students also squeeze in a quick lunch between courses. Old movie posters line the walls and ceiling... More

Falafel here is absolutely delicious! We carry on coming back with friend to take it again and again. Also it's possible to sit inside: the interior of the restaurant (very much artistic I would say in ins own way) together with music makes you feel like you are not in Cologne, but Middle East.

Description
In my "shop" put a big piece of my soul, because I love my work.

We buy fresh ingredients at the market It is my joy to make my Arab staff familiar with my concept of quality and friendliness.

The special recipes with exotic spices are my secret. I weigh myself, the individual constituents of my spice mixes. Especially for falafel and shawarma there is nothing comparable in the region delicious.

My meat is marinated in its own ritual and directly processed in the kitchen.
