It's a great atmosphere it's very cozy. Great place to smoke shisha. It cost 350 also have food available but it's a middle eastern cuisine they also have some filipino food too. I'm a regular over there so i get great service thanks to peter it's a great server.

Latest update- in regard to the last visit, a day ago up here - the guy who waited our tables of 10 members, was behaving awkwardly
I really don’t know the reason, were as the visit that was made almost a week ago up here was good were a filipino lady waited our table and was so welcoming and we were happy with our time that we spent with almost 12-14 members over there. When we went there this time , the Filipino lady who waited out table last time welcomed us with a smile when she saw our group.
I hope the management would note the behavior of the staffs , anyway am posting the photo of the person who waited my table. How good the food is, yet the staffs cannot exhibit good customer relations and is not warm in welcoming. The business goes down.
It says Arabic, Turkish Grill, Indian, Filipino, sea food
Seafood grill, Mediterranean Cuisines and cafe
They have tried their part in getting it towards so as to have an Arabic Touch, almost there but bit more to go, honestly
This doesn’t mean that the food wasn’t nice , however my taste buds didn’t get that feel completely
They have rice dishes- Mandi, biriyani, Kabsa..🥘🍚🍙
I wish, they had more varieties of rice preparations in Arabic- like the Madfoon...
With these kabsa and shatta-(the tomato sauce) that usually accompanies was not there.
Tried both mix grill 🥓🍖, shawarma- both lamb and chicken ( I’d say and recommend LAMB shawarma. 🌮)
They should also include Jarjir ☘️🌿with cheese. And lettuce 🥬
This should have been part of the main course where ai didn’t see any clue of them
The Lamb in the mix grill was good enough in taste but their presence was just for name sake , could include bit more... had one beef kebab, chicken kabab and a lots of french fries and one big Khuboos
The Ambiance was nice
They have separate area equivalent to the size of the restaurant by side where I saw , was designated for shisha 🚬
I cannot say that its 💯 percent authentic Arabic food. Still will do
To the final touch , I would suggest- yemeni Tea with mint,
And dessert- like Loqqaimat, khunafa
The over all experience was ok
