My bf and I were there and tried Habibi and Cologne plate dishes. Both were tasty, falafel was not special. Generally it was good and I 'll go there again but it is a small restaurant and not with nice atmosphere.

The best shawarma in town, 2.50 euros gets you a small but tasty wrap, if you're in the area its definitely worth visiting.

As said in the subject food served in Habibi is very nice and fresh and what's more this tiny place is all decorated with cinema posters taken from the cinema nearby I assume. Totally gorgeous! Pay attention to the cash desk and small cute tables you gonna it at! Highly recommended not ordering to take away. Sitting there and relaxing... More

If you're after a change from meat and potatoes, Habibi is a great place to try. The traditional style of kebab and mixed plates with the many herbs and spices is a nice change from the many German and Italian restaurants in Cologne. The food itself is low in price but high on flavour so would recommend it if you're... More

If you're in the area I would certainly recommend this eatery - it's cheap and you get a lot for your money. However upon seeing the reviews we travelled quite far and it was difficult getting a seat, and the food was quite average in my opinion (my mum got the meat dish and enjoyed it so perhaps it was...

After reading some good reviews on TripAdvisor we went well out of our way to find this little cafe. If you are looking for cheap, basic Lebanese food then this is the place to go. It's self service and has a range of average Lebanese dishes. It was just OK. Not the best Lebanese food we have ever had but... More

Had a great experience with my wife there, asked for a falafel and shoarma plates, which were very well served. The restaurant staff was really nice too! We were really lucky to find a good table in the window, the place seems to be usually full, but the place is cosy with a lot of diverse decorations. Definitely worth a... More

We enjoy this little Turkish place on a busy local street. No fancy stuff here. Just good food. There are only a few tables and you have to order at the counter. It is very popular and on weekends there are always line ups. I enjoy the the tabouli salad, the falafel & the shawarma. Usually they give you turkish... More

In my "shop" put a big piece of my soul, because I love my work.

We buy fresh ingredients at the market It is my joy to make my Arab staff familiar with my concept of quality and friendliness.

The special recipes with exotic spices are my secret. I weigh myself, the individual constituents of my spice mixes. Especially for falafel and shawarma there is nothing comparable in the region delicious.

My meat is marinated in its own ritual and directly processed in the kitchen.
