Cafe Arabia is a great find! Located in a large villa, it has a homey feel. There are regular tables and comfy cafe type chairs. The food and coffee I ordered each time were delicious. Feels more authentic than the mall restaurants. Enjoy!More

The place is interesting and the food is somehow good. But the service has to be improved. It's too long to order and to receive food. And if you have the chance to have what your ordered you still have to wait for the cutlery.......More
