“Diversity of delicious food wins you over”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Good family environment, arab-imspired cuisine cooked with the heart! The buffet has a huge vegetarian section with lots of options to choose from, a smaller vegan section, and a meat section... also desserts are great... entrees are tasty and well prepared...Sampa should learn from Recife...

“The best.”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

For me, this is the best self service restaurant in Recife.
They are opened for lunch and dinner.
This is very clean, really nice food, a lot of options with salads, meat, sea food, chicken, pasta, and others.
This is the restaurant where I use to go, when I'm in Recife.
The desserts are the best, including diet ones.
If you are there, don't miss it, you won't regret.

“Options for almost all tastes”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Good food and a large variety of options, especially for salads. The selection of vegetables was extense including several fruits also. The meat dishes apparenlly change every day, so you might not get exactly what you want, but the quality will be good.

“All tribes are welcomed: veganos and carnivorous”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Papaya is a patafise for vegans, with a very assorted buffet of greens and delicious food cooked with no meat, milk or derivates.
But thete is always some well prepared meat for those who did not convert yet to vegetarianism.
A very good table of dessert, too.
