“Good prices, great food.”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Reasonable prices (for Norway), and the food is good. It doesn't look like much from the outside (or the inside, for that matter), but the food is still good. Belly dancing on Saturdays.

“Decent food, cramped space”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

This is a centrally located restaurant in Oslo that offers Middle Eastern food. We had a mezze vegetarian platter and the kofte (meatballs). The food was decent enough, and the prices were not exorbitant for Oslo dinner (around 160-190 NOK for each person). While service was good, the space inside the restaurant was very cramped and the tables were very close together. The seven plates that came with the mezze platter didn't fit on our table so we had to stack them on top of each other, which made for an unpleasant dining experience.

This might be the type of place that would be better for take-away - it's cheaper and you don't have to deal with the cramped interior.

“Great Arabic Meza”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

The food is authentic palestinian and if you like tapas then you will love arabic style tapas: meza. They have a belly dancer on the weekends which adds to the experience. The prices are also very reasonable. I´ll definitely be back
