Choose chicken or kofta and get a large meal consisting of soup (broth with pasta), a simple salad (cucumber, tomato, fresh herbs, lime), fresh bread, tahina, humus, pickles and the meat of your choice. Simple, good, cheap.

The food was very tasty and the portions were impressive. The staff were very accommodating and the prices are really great. The only thing is the fact that you are sitting in the pedestrian area with no view whatsoever.
