Fed up with pork adobo? Try this Arabic simple place in Ermita. Portions are large and food is excellent. Their spicy beef shawarma is specially delicious. They are on both sides of the street but on the most "restaurant-like" side they have an open terrace upstairs which is pleasant. Service not very friendly though

Authentic Arab restaurant in the city. 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Nice ambience in a busy road. Great menu both in Arabic and English language. Many Arabic dishes and other food items. Shisha is available as well. Ordered Sheesh Tawooq and Seafood Biryani. It has Halal food. It comes with salad and bread. Nice place. Highly recommended.

I've been asking around where to eat a really good Shawarma in Manila area. The ones being sold in Rob Manila just don't cut it for me. My friends luckily brought me to this place. Admittedly, I was hesitant because the place is old and not well-kept. However, their pita bread and dips and the 3 shawarmas (at 150 pesos)... More

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. My son and an I had the mixed plate on middle eastern rice. It was a large and full plate. Price seemed reasonable for both the quality and... More
