Excellent cuisine, service is really efficient and the atmosphere is fabulous. Eventually they will have some Belly Dance's night, which I love.

Excellent dishes, flvorful, varied, and amazingly delicious food. A vegetarian's paradise. Good service, fabulous cuisine. A bit pricey for lunch but well worth it.

Kalil's cuisine has been consistently great through all the years we've lived here, either as an everyday option or for special occasions, when some dishes are added to the menu (e.g. eggplant in pomegranate sauce, which they had for new year's); great food, very pleasant place, friendly staff, reasonable prices! ask for some of the special dishes like the grilled...

I usually go here for lunch. I wished I could go everyday, but it is a little expensive. So, I keep it for the days I want to threat myself. The food is good, and has a good variety of food. It definitely deserves the higher price. The only improvement could be having a larger variety of meat, but they... More

Good food with a wide variety of arab specialities, some adapted to the local taste. Central location, quite convenient and comfortable. The service is extremely friendly, and you can see the staff takes its time to talk to clients and get their feedback.

the staff were very friendly and hospitable, the food was freshly made and of high quality. As well as the usual hummus, there was a range of aubergine and courgette dips. I am not a vegetarian, but there seemed to be a lot of choice for those who are.

Not just arab food as the name of the restaurant states, but more generally Middle Eastern. It is an "al quilo" restaurant. The choice is not huge but the quality is very good. Very nice hummus, succulent meat (both from the buffet or on order). Amiable owner (with Lebanese origins) and good service. A little expensive for the São Carlos... More
