The food here was plentiful and good value. Friendly waiting staff and a good selection to choose from. They also importantly have a good food hygiene standards rating... something that's often lacking in Luton restaurants. Thanks for a good evening :)

The hot starter was full of flavour, the lamb bamia raging was Devine! The mixed of herbs and spices were exquisite. Polly

Description
We bring the Arab world to Luton. Get a taste of authentic Arabic food to Luton. Desert's rose was the first shisha cafe to open in Luton in 2004. At Desert's rose you will dine on our carefully prepared Middle Eastern specialties, all in a peaceful, relaxed, yet elegant environment. We prepare the best middle eastern food, and we do so by using fresh products daily, employing traditional techniques in preparing our dishes. Start with our mezze (starters/appetizers) -- including our specially prepared olives, our "light as air" falafel, savoury sambousek, the freshest salads, and our famous hummus, which has been described by various customers as "a revelation, undeniably rich...Silky...And impossible not to indulge." You'll enjoy our popular entries, including delicately marinated and grilled meats, e.G. Lamb cutlets, lamb steak or lamb sheesh and why not try our lamb kebab. If you're not so keen on lamb why not try our delicious grilled whole baby chicken, chicken steak or sheesh kebab. To add that extra taste on our grills we use natural charcoal. Relax in our shisha garden and try our desserts; ranging from chocolate fudge cake to our tempting hand-made baklawa. We also make fresh fruit juices, special fruit cocktail smoothies, and traditionally-prepared coffee. We pride ourselves in providing an identical experience to the Hookah Cafes of the Middle East.
