I loved this restaurant. It is inside Hilton City Centre Hotel and serves quality food... The Milktart was to die for!

It is part of a hotel and the hotel is very North African and the restaurant is halal so I thought it would be good. It is, in my opinion, a little lower than average. My butter chicken tasted like flavored tomato gravy and chicken,...More

Was here 5 years ago for anniversary and thought would do it again. Disappointment is all I can say. Food, atmosphere, service ranging between lousy to mediocre. Could have stayed at home and odered a better meal from Mr Delivery. What a dissapointment.

limited menu and does not cater for general clientele as would be expected for an international hotel brand. Food not really appetizing with no alcohol served in restaurant and cannot enjoy a glass of wine with dinner.
