The food was excellent and the service was prompt considering how crowded it was at four o'clock in the afternoon. They have filtered water, lamb-based spicy soup, and a green salad with delicious spicy dressings. These are all brought to you in turn with no...More

Prices are good with this place serving stews and dips representative of Yemen. I never had this food before but was spicy and delicious. Will return again. Very low key relaxing place.

It's a cross between India and Arabic food. You will find the fall of the bone lamb, masala rice and very wheaty type if roti/Naan. I highly recommended.

While we have eaten lots of Middle Eastern food before, never food from Yemen. This is a lovely cafe with a friendly staff and terrific food. Reasonably priced, as well. Don't miss the lamb. Soup and bread are both delicious.

Authentic Yemeni food. Don't be put off by the no-frills décor. Friendly staff, boisterous atmosphere (at least on a Saturday night when we went). And the food! They start you off with marag, a wonderful lamb broth (and I don't even like lamb) and clay...More
