I have grown to enjoy Mediterranean dishes when visiting my Sister and her family, so it was good to see authentic Mediterranean cuisine available in the Ermita area of Manila. Great tasting food at reasonable prices. Well worth a visit when in Ermita.

I always take the opportunity to eat here whenever I am in the area. It's a great place to satisfy your cravings for authentic Mediterranean food. The Mediterranean platter is the best value. For less than $30USD, you get 3 sticks of tenderloin kebab, 3 sticks shish kebab and 3 sticks chicken kebab plus saffron rice, pita bread, hummus and... More

There are two spots, across from each other, one is more casual and the other more of a restaurant. Food is good and varied, typical for this kind of cuisine. A nice change from Filipino food. There is hookah smoking in the restaurant downstairs and even though the upstairs is for non-smokers there is no escaping the smell.

So this may be in a bit of a rubbish area and probably isn't the most enticing of restaurants in Manila, however the food here is excellent. I've visited a couple of times and tried a variety of dishes, the Falafel is the best i've ever had crispy and very fresh. You can sit in or takeaway. The fresh juices... More

A friend recommended us to try this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Their food really tastes good and prices are reasonable. Serving size is of right amount too. First time to try their kebab with basmati rice with curry instead of butter and it tastes good too.

I love eating here! The food is excellent and it's value for money. I recommend their Shawarma Rice and Kebab sets paired with rice or bread. So delicious! The service could be improved tho. Sometimes the waitstaff take a long time to bring the bill and the change. But it's a minor nitpick. Definitely check this place out if you're... More

Don't let the terrible location, the uncreative name, or the not-so-enticing ambiance faze you. This is by far one of the best restaurants in the city to grab Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes. There's really not much to add to that. The prices are incredibly reasonable, the serving sizes large, and the taste is authentic. If you're in the area,... More

Reliable, consistent and value for money. Open 24/7 too! I have been coming back - solo, with friends, with family, with colleagues and foreign friends- it never disappoints all these years!
