Visited after 3 years and disappointed. Went there because it was the only Middle Easter restaurant we could local in Boat Quay. Ordered Humus and Sulthani. Restaurant is trying to be everything and ends up nothing. Rice was bland and beef was very chewy.

Ordered the lamb kofte from here via Food Panda. Considering the price (almost 30 sgd) I was expecting much better. The meal was some plain rice and dry meat. A tiny pathetic chopped salad and no other condiments. Really disappointed.
