Food is nice and meat is succulent. However my boys didn't like being commented about not finishing their veges although I think it was alright. Owner just wanted to be friendly....well-meaning aunty. Place is small so for groups bigger than 4, likely we'll be seated outside. Not sure if that's allowed by landlord but if yes, then it could use some decor to make the place nicer. I like alfresco dining.
Food was excellent. Service was great. Loved that the dessert sweetness was tone down a bit. 2 things that could be improve is to have a menu with pictures to give an idea to those who have not tried middle eastern foods and hoping that their bussiness do well so they can have a bigger space for diners.
