Enjoyed a lunch here. Kind personnel, helping you in good English. Menu is incredibly large with way too many options (English though). Caters mainly to large groups of tourists, but prices are acceptable. Food was decent.

Portions were ridiculously small for the price paid. Rice was ice cold (they forgot to warm it up). It took them 45' to prepare a shisha (waterpipe), so that the restaurant was about to close by the time I could start smoking it. I paid...More
