During a walk we did through Rotterdam we just passed by this restaurant (which was also recommended in the walking brochure). Things looked fine on the plates on the terrace. There was a short line at the door. When it was our turn we were put on the list with an estimated 15 minute wait. We took a drink at the bar and after the wait, which was 15 minutes we got seated. We took the BizarBazar (mixed grill for 2) and Couscous with meat and loved everything. Less tasty are the fried potatoes which had not really a potato-taste. The only letdown was the red housewine. It is really bland, lacking taste. When paying I also stated this and the guy at the bar said he heard this a lot. Time to do something about it?
Service was pleasant, fast and in good humour.
The place is packed (on three floors plus a terrace) and quite loud. It feels genuinely mediterranean with a lot of staff.

Had a very nice lunch, quick service, very friendly staff, would return when I am back in Rotterdam.

We both had salads which were huge and we'll worth the few euros paid!

Very good middle-east food in generous portions. Opens until mid-night on weekends. Quick service at Rotterdam night-life street.

It might not look like much from the outside but just wait till you go inside.
It's an amazing place, the food is great, plenty of vegetarian options and be sure to have some mint tea with your meal :)
Oh, and also: HUMMUS! :)
