A friend recommended we try this place and we were delighted with it. We arrived around 830am and had breakfast. The food was delicious and the service great. The chefs even made my son a heart shaped bread for fun. Highly recommend.

We came for a casual visit with my friends just expecting to have a nice food and great place to take some photos together. We all have been to this branch before and it’s a well known place for the excellent service. However, this time...we were more than amazed how above and beyond was our waiter Mahmoud. On top of being very friendly, attentive and professional, this guy just kept on making our evening for being so extra. A small example, at the time when the staff brought bukhoor next to us, I complimented the smell and mentioned that I wish to buy the same soon. Before we knew it, Mahmoud brought a small box of exact the same bukhoor to take with us and offered to buy more for us at his free time soon, without accepting any money. When we asked how can we pass our positive feedback of his service to the management he refuse to tell us. I believe every restaurant should be proud of having such valuable member of the team.More
