Even if we ate outside de at 37º, it was a very pleasant experience. We started with a great hummus followed by chicken, lamb kebab and lamb wit rice. All was excellent. The service a little slow but very kind.

We had lunch which was tasty food. Good idea to book a table as it is very busy. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table so not too bad. Reasonable price.
