“Nice Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We thought of having early lunch at this joint next to the matatu terminals along Westlands road and we were not disappointed. The chicken was tender and the service was equally acceptable.

“Worst food, over priced and not existent service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The place claims to be serving Arabic cuisine, but alas......what you get is badly prepared food. Went there with friends and ordered the following: Fattoush, Chicken shawarma, Arayes, Chicken wings.
The fattoush was bland, no seasoning, no lemon, no flavour. Chicken shawarma was just pieces of chicken tossed in a pan with some salt, again no marination, no grilled taste. The arayes was a thick bread with bland lamb mince, overcooked and rubbery. The chicken wings were the best of the worst, bad in taste but not as much as the other three dishes.
Top this up with terrible service, cold, thick pita bread, and a lot more of real let downs. The server brought back the change after settling the bill, only to find that it wasn't the right amount. Upon probing she replied that we don't have coins !!!!
The only thing I saw was the shisha being served, but none of the other 10 tables had ordered any food.....a sign that I should have noticed before ordering food. Never going again to this place.

“Good place to chill with a shisha on”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

I spent the afternoon there yesterday and had a shisha and drinks. The atmosphere is laid back, there is always help on the background waiting to serve you. Well maybe its because there werent much people in the afternoon too. Overall not a bad place for a shisha.
