Was such a good experience. The food was amazing! We were so full. Highly recommend. They went above and beyond, we had an Arabic makeover, then we had some Henna done by Rupali. She was so good and I loved her design. Photos were taken on our phones for the whole experience by Ashraf and we were served Arabic coffee outside by him and Mohammed. 10/10 experience and food.

Super great ambience in the old town of Dubai - we were warmly welcomed by Rony and he not only served us a typical Emirati breakfast, but also explained the individual dishes in detail. In addition, it was very tasty. We also went there for lunch - both are worthwhile and definitely recommended
