This is a very very traditional and humble Arabic restaurant serving very good food. It is located on the edge of Souq Waqif and fairly easy to find. You can choose to sit at a table or in a majlis "sit on the floor/cushions" kind of booth - which is very nice if you're with a big group of friends. The decor is very simple and in tune with the Souq Waqif. The service is also very basic and most of the staff doesn't speak English although they will try their best - they offer a "no frills" service at its best. The food is very very tasty and wholesome - one of the accompanying rice and bread dishes alone could feed a household. We had a grilled fish and chicken stew dish which you can see in the photos. I would advise to go meat dishes rather than fish - although the fish was good I think their specialties are the meat dishes. Drinks were average (water, coke, fanta). You won't find many tourists or expatriates in here actually it seemed that most customers were working men, perhaps from the surrounding souqs. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an "off the trail" Arabic/Gulf restaurant experience.
