This is a simple neighborhood cafe filled with locals. Upon being seated we were immediately served lamb (broth) soup and freshly baked naan-style bread. Both were excellent. We then had fassolia and lamb haneeth which was also excellent. The bread keeps coming throughout the meal...More

Good food. Large portions. The flatbread was fresh and the hummus tasted great. A must try is the Yemen tea. It was wonderful. I will definitely be returning. My advice is to go there hungry.

Authentic Yemeni food. The fact that it was jam-packed with Mddle Eastern customers was a good sign. No frills, just great wholesome food and very reasonable pricing. Staff were "functional but polite". Food was very, very tasty. Portions were generous, atmosphere was lively. Recommended.
