I am writing this review after my third visit to this restaurant. This place is definitely my favorite restaurant in Cape Town at the moment. It has always been a struggle to find good Middle Eastern food in Cape Town so I am very happy this place has opened.

The decor is lovely and warm inside, service has always been attentive and their prices are very reasonable. I love their meze but I have to always leave space for one of their grilled main dishes. I am not much for desserts normally but what I had last time I was there (some milk based pudding with nuts) was amazing.

I can definitely recommend this restaurant if you like Middle Eastern food or if you just want a nice grilled meat dish.

We had our wineclub meeting at this wonderful restaurant! The atmosphere is warm and cosy, the food was absolutely amazing and the service attentive. Not too pricey and the owner was very hands on and avaliable to chat to. Will definately recommend it, we will surely visit again.

Just had the perfect diner at this awesome restaurant. Great food, beautiful wine and friendly host! Thank you, we will definitely make this a regular stop from the mundane everyday "popular" places we tend to always go to. Really someplace special to visit!
