I've been here before and it is very pleasantly situated and somehow combines a bit of privacy whilst being in the heart of the shopping, (section of). (Outdoor seating indoors.) I decided to have the chicken on the skewer. A nice big portion arrived, without waiting, (they weren't very busy at the is time). The chicken cubes were in big chunks and somehow the texture of the meat is a bit strange. It's a bit spongy because i think that it has a lot of moisture massaged in during the production process. The chips, salad and Arabic bread were all fine. Just had a cheap Fanta orange drink that was okay. Service okay as usual.

Yes, been here many times and always seem to find something on the menu that's a bit different. We had a simple Arabic kind of round bread freshly baked thingy with cream and honey and my wife had a cheese salad with a nice service of lettuce on it. Drinks were Karak Tea and Cafe Latte. There are other things on the menu we've had before and all seem okay so far.
Service is fine except sometimes staff are inclined to remove plates too quickly - main course plate removed before finished last mouthful. It's convenient, popular and open.

Fine, i've been here before and found the food okay. I had the chicken kebab and on a previous visit, a chicken supreme with mushroom sauce. My wife had a salad dish that was fine also. The food tastes okay except that the chicken in both dishes i had was processed, (water massaged in during production) that gives if a slightly spongy texture). The portions are usually very large so there is plenty to eat. They were very busy tonight so that reinforces their popularity.

The chefs wear some kind of strange mouth mask and i'm not rally sure why.
