While the food was good the portions were tiny. Even the Coke I ordered which was typical chrge for a restuarant came in a juice glass. Was a charge for the small basket of Pita bread they brought to the table. Added the tip in automatically and very disinterested server. In retrospect - there were no locals only tourists which was not the case with a few restuarants down the way. Avoid.

The restaurant owner is a nice man but the restaurant needs a thorough cleaning and whitewashing will not hurt her. Food: tabouleh was fresh meat mix grill part was burnt and dry and some did not smell good. Chips was saturated with oil - inedible.
Beer was warm and without foam - after a complaint has been replaced.
Spoiled us with fruits on the house, but the bill was high- not worth the value.
not recommended.

I went to this restaurant with some friends after a lovely day in the park. The owner was at the door and convinced us to go in. He was trying very hard to be funny but I noticed that the staff working there seemed to feel uncomfortable. There was a weird atmosphere!
After the owner took the order (not in a very professional way, I must say), we waited a long time for the food. When the order arrived at our table I was in shock..the portions of the main meals were so small that looked like starters: on the plates there were just a few pieces of meat with a bit of chopped raw onion on the side. We also had to remind them about some chips we ordered and got them when we already finished our tiny kebabs.
The bill was extortionate!! It was just adding insult to injury.
This was a very bad experience that ruined our day out. We were really upset but because we were there with kids we decided not to argue but just pay and leave the place as soon as possible. We felt robbed and still hungry.
The worst experience in a restaurant ever!!!

Located near Hotel Henry VIII, not too clean, and the smell in the restaurant is very special. The food is good, and the owner is a nice man who understand and speaks a bit scandinavian. Would like to see that all the lights in the lamps was functioning, and some cleaning would be ok.
