Delicious Arabic dishes at very moderate prices. They have healthy alternatives, come here if you want eggs, cheese, pastries, fa;afel and more carbs. I don't understand why they don't serve hummus or salad and this is why i'm rating it a 4/5.

I wanted to go for something quick and not too expensive. The menu looked promising. Healthy, 'simple' meals. Just what I was looking for. Staff is very friendly and look after their customers. Below picture with desert for 93,- AED.
