Dropped by for lunch with the family after a visit to the IS Embassy. Whatever the place lacks in ambience, it makes up for in the quality of authentic middle eastern food.

Got takeaways here late at night. Toilets dirty and beggars surround the place. Be careful of the extra bread scam as your food probably already comes with bread. Hygiene is non existent here with cats wandering freely and greasy seats and tables. I go there only if desperate for a souv......

My tastebuds were craving a different cuisine and it definitely hit the spot, great prices, laid back area. It's nicer to sit in the open part of the restaurant as inside is really crowded.

The reason why I gave the 4 stars is because this place is very old and not very clean, Also the waitresses are not friendly, and also the service is kind of slow. For the quality of food, no question is it the best I eat in Manila. For the price, reasonable I paid 150 PHP for two sandwiches (wraps)

I understand that all those places have cockroaches. However, when they appear right at your table with people around, then there is a problem. I just started eating when that happened. I paid and left
