This place was great find while walking around Central Hong Kong. The food is pretty good -- definitely not the best Middle-Eastern restaurant I've ever had, but a fantastic change from Chinese food.

A brilliant vegetarian option in HK, which also does good meat dishes too (according to my fellow diners). Love the atmosphere and very attentive service.

Great find of a little Middle Eastern flavor. Food tasty and authentic, service okay. A fun break for the palate.

Ate lunch at this tucked away restaurant in the Soho area of Hong Kong, very delightful staff and nice little restaurant. I was vegetarian on this particular day and hence a very good option, as they have a wide variety of vegetarian dishes to choose from. We started with a hot mezze which consisted of babaganoush, bossara, fatush, Moutabal, hallumi, tabbuleh and a host of others which were all delicious. For the main I had the Chowry...it was fantastic. Being a vegetarian I enjoyed the cjoice and the food. I was slightly dissapointed by the toilets, which I could not even step into as the stench was overpowering..The management needs to look into this area. Otherwise great location of Central, grab a bite and continue to your shopping. Also a good tip ask for the hot sauce or chilli sauce it is lip smackingly good..

Fancied something different after 3 weeks in various places in Asia. We love Egyptian and Lebanese food so thought we would give this a try.

Staff were very uninterested in us despite us being the only people in there.

The hummus was nice but a really tiny portion. The felafel was a small portion aswell.

I had the lamb sharwarma which was ok. Definately not the best we have had.

My daughter had the couscous and veg in a sauce. It was a bit salty and too much cinnamon.

They tried to charge our credit card in £s and we had to tell them to charge it in HKD. We've see this before where restaurants try to make a bit of money off currency exchange.

They did not seem happy with us when we insisted they charge in HKD!!!!

Overall an average experience, and I wouldn't bother to eat there again.
