Delicious food and friendly service. Ordered the lamb tagine, which was amazing, and the lamb shank special, also very good. We had tried going to sister restaurant, Bedouin, but it was full - we weren't sure about coming here but it turned out to be a great choice! Note that cards are not accepted so get cash from the cash machine just nearby.

Made very welcome by the staff. took the recommendations for the special which was first class. sister restaurant is just along the road, and both were equally good. Different but sufficiently similar to feel familiar..well worth a visit and look forward to return visit.

We were recommended by a friend to visit this restaurant and what a fantastic little place.
As I had the day off we visited on a Monday Lunchtime. It was as very quiet but as the meal progressed that meant we could talk more to the owner and get some great tips for home.
On entering, right in the window is the charcoal grill where some of the magic unfolds before your eyes.
The food is a mixture of South to East Mediterranean (North Africa around to Turkey).

The Mezze starter was perfect size with Pitta warmed on the grill giving a beautiful taste.
Main course I had the grilled marinated chicken. Perfectly cooked and so tasty.
My wife had the vegetarian mesfouf served with a spiced yoghurt dressing... absolutely stunning flavours.
Shared the pastries for desert and our Monday was made!

We’ll definitely be returning ( taking kids with us next time)

We have been coming here for over 5 years we now travel from Bury St Edmunds to eat here. The food is amazing and never disappoints. I love the dessert menu (as I’m not a huge fan of Arabic desserts). The staff are always helpful especially with our two little ones. Fast service which is just what we want when you have a small time frame to eat before the children have had enough. Highly recommend to anyone who is looking for some good food in Cambridge
