“The Most Awesome Restaurant in T&T”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

The #1 spot for my family and I to eat at…Josephs' restaurant is simply AWESOME! The arabic food is top notch, the absolute best, the service is great and the prices are really good. The owners alway greets you with a smile, and their staff is always warm and friendly. When you're there, you're treated like family, and that is a rare occurrence in restaurants these days. I would recommend eating here to anyone.

Absolutely great, keep it up guys! :)

“Nestled away :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

Went to a charity dinner here and was quite pleased. Joseph was most present as well.

Decor: Christmas feel
Food: well done... entrees were awesome... try the stuffed mushrooms :)

I'm not sure what their prices are like as it was a charity dinner priced by plate.

Try it... guys, nice for a date ;)

“One of the best Restaurants in Trinidad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

I have to say that this is one (if not THE one) of my favourite restaurants in Trinidad and I always take the opportunity to visit when I'm in town. Situated away from the hustle and bustle of Port of Spain, down a quiet leafy lane (Rookery Nook). Seating inside or outside, great ambiance, friendly staff, good food, family run. Joseph (the owner) will always come and make sure that everything is to your liking and if there is even a hint that you are not 100% happy - he will whisk it away, redo it or change your selection. If you like your food done in a certain way - just ask him. A truly great restaurant ethic.

“Cosy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The restaurant had a cosy feel to it. The owner welcomed us which was a nice touch. The staff was also pleasant and helpful especially in choosing dishes. The food was quite good and varied so you could choose continental cuisine or middle- eastern dishes. Service was somewhat slow but as I was there for a birthday it really didn't matter. It is pricey but the quiet setting and ambience helps when you consider the bill.
