This was a great recommendation made to me by a fellow foodie colleague.

There were three of us dining. We ordered:0gz0JO1392449215

  • The mixed platter for two. This is the restaurant’s description – ‘This  platter comes out in three stages and its a great choice for hungry couples. The first stage consists of hummus, babaghannoush and tabbouli. The second stage consists of our succulent lady fingers, falafel and cauliflower. The final stage consists of a skewer of garlic chicken, a skewer of kafta and shawarma accompanied by salata, tahina sauce and garlic sauce’.  (48)
  • Fattouch. The restaurant’s description – ‘An exquisite salad, combination of tomato, cucumber, lettuce, onion, capsicum, radish, parsley and herbs, with toasted bread, lemon, oil and sumac’. (10.9)

Although I am not a huge fan of parsley, all three are very enjoyable. XKeEGV1392449355SFF4I81392449399

I quite like wrapping them in the pita bread with some lettuces leaves. I particularly liked the lady fingers though, probably the highlight of this course for me.

Overall a great hunger buster meal for those that can really eat, at a very reasonable price. Needless to say we didn’t finish all the food.

Food: 8/10
Value for money: 9.5/10
Ambience: 7.5/10
Service: 7.5/10
