The food and service are both fantastic and well worth the cash at this year’s winner in the MENA category. Both Western and Middle Eastern dining traditions are catered for, with communal mezze and grills listed alongside self-contained starters and main courses; but the meat and seafood dishes are where the restaurant truly shines, fresh, tasty and perfectly prepared.

The most horrible restaurant i ever went . Waiters don't help you in what to choose . Many times they got the wrong order for us. Waiters doesn't not come to you , and the only thing u hear from the waiters for the customers is (sorry it won't happen again ) and they do the same mistake with other customers.
It really sucks. I will never go again to this restaurant.

But the shisha is pretty fine

The restaurant and food etc were fine- I certainly would not gush about it as the reviewer has done- and I found it pricey for what it was. The atmosphere certainly took away from the experience as everyone sat around looking slightly uncomfortable amidst the minimalist design where everyone's conversations could be overheard (hence a lot of bizarre whispering amongst groups).

Our bill did however come to a LOT more as we had drinks and water etc. which I see are not included in the approximate price above. Could we have some standardisation on this matter from TO please? Some reviews have every bottle of water and drink included, others only food, which gives a very incorrect assessment of price when comparing like for like.

The worse Couscous ever on earth and beyond... A dull wheat purée with unsalted vegies (sad carots) and dry chicken. Not one spice in the plate. Side bowl of a green (!!) sauce from unknow origin. Defrozen bread. "Exotic" fruit platter with large cuts of melon, not even a sugar syrup or so. A "moroccan" tea tasting like the Yellow one. Atayeb on Thurs special cabaret night with minimum cover charge 300 pp equal a stupid crookery. The Yas shame experience for gogos...
