Karawane is an Arabian restaurant, tucked away down a little side street, next to the beautiful 4711 building. Once you enter, It has a typical Arabian feel, warm and inviting. The is a good selection on the menu including about 5 vegetarian options. The starter options of 10, 20 or 30 small plates of appertizers (depending on the size of group) looked really good and seemed quite popular with the locals. The food was really good and very tasty, the service friendly but a little on the slow side, this mainly due to there being only two waiters and a nearly full restaurant. Definately worth a visit and I'll be taking my wife there when she's next over in Cologne.

Based on our first two adventures in Köln & the reviews for this restaurant we were quite excited – a feeling enhanced by the selection of teas on the menu at the table. The food is exotic and good enough but a bit disappointing, perhaps watered towards the German audience (certainly the salad was – it had beans and sweet corn in what was meant to be a Middle Eastern starter!) The bread was not warm / fresh. The pomegranate sauce was jammier than I've had before. The lamb was of excellent quality though, and the service friendly. The decor is kitsch, – dark, orange and with fake palm trees. Most people in the restaurant were families.
