First visit last night and I will certainly be back very soon. Such totally delicious Middle Eastern food obviously cooked by someone who loves and knows his food. We had Baba Ganoush, Tabbouleh with freshly made Lebanese bread, Falafel Mahshi, to name just a few of the spectacular dishes. There are many meat dishes too. The service was wonderful. A must for all Capetonians and tourists alike.

A new restaurant to Plein Street near parliament, the interior in the period building is sparse yet welcoming. Our waitress was attentive and helpful, and as we struggled to understand the intericacies of the menu, the owner came across to explain the dishes and make recommendations.

Certainly tasty at a price that doesn't break the bank. No real wine list, with a few bottles on offer. I should have checked if there is corckage if you bring your own.

A different and interesting experience.

The food was fabulous, traditional middle eastern/Mediterranean cuisine, and the owner is authentically warm and welcoming. The prices are very fair, and the wine was good, as well. If you are dining with folks that,like more continental dishes, pizza, and salads are also found on the menu.
