We met Sofia who was making desserts. Our Kenafeh was so very good... also the honey/rosewater cake. Loved the hummus and falafel. We liked the halloumi but felt it didn't need the balsamic topping at all...better just plain and grilled in our book.

The food was excellent and the atmosphere was relaxing and cozy. Guests were coming out as we were entering and all had great things to say about the food. They were right. I recommend you start with the sampler.

Even if using a coupon, it is still customary to add tip the the total amount of bill before any discount.
