“Very good local food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2012

A little away from city Center, this restaurant provides you with excellent local food. Nice atmosphere for lunch and more cosy during diner, friendly staff.
Very good quality for price.

“the main place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

This is where everybody goes for Yemeni cuisine. The bread is outstanding, as is the shrimp, the salta and the fasa. Expensive, you can find cheaper options, although you might not want to enter some of those. Sometimes they provide entertainment (Yemeni men doing the knife dane).

“There to attract tourist. Very expensive...”

There to attract tourist. Very expensive, small portions.avoid it as there are better places to eat the same quality food in cheaper prices. Would go to shaibaani instead you get the same variety.
