Since I reviewed this restaurant in 2014 the prices have gone up a fair amount. The food is exactly the same (and still tasty), but what is excellent value at 12 euro isn't at 16. Wish my paycheck increased 30% over the course of 2 years. Also the service left much to be desired during our last visit (mixed up... More

A mixture of Persian (Iranian) and Afghan influences. Grilled kebaps missing. Rice very good. Much much better than the Indian places in town.

Pomegranate tea is made from powder and tastes artificial, no fresh herbs used for my dish, and the tomatoe sauce was probably not fresh either -at least it tasted like canned tomatoe juice. Apfelstrudel on the menu...not quite Persian I would say. Quite disappointed.

This cafe restaurant added an extra table for us to sit outside and served us with some good beer and wine while we dined. They had four choices of vegetarian food, I chose the mixed veg with a curry sauce and saffron rice, my partner had a mixed salad with grilled chicken. The food was served with good sized portions...

This restaurant is wonderful. When we went it was 34° outside and sticky, but there were no tables outside and were led inside to a cool, comfortable room. The food was very good indeed (I had the lamb in spinach), the staff attentive, friendly but not intrusive and the bill reasonable. What more could you ask for?

The first visit was a spontaneous one and it turned out to be a great choice. The food is just delicious! Like most restaurants in Potsdam, the prices are about 2 euros more on average than you would find in Berlin but the portions are generous. Not a huge menu but the 3 various main dishes I've tried are all... More

Cafe Laila is so good I planned a whole day with my visiting sister - who's been in Potsdam three times before - just to take her to it :) And I confessed it to her after she said the food was really amazing :) I really like the location (close-by to Dutch Quarter), the friendly owner family, how incredible...

Was here for dinner on our holiday in Postdam and was recommended by the waiter to order the surprise menu and its blown us. The rice, the lamb and everything on the plate was so delicious and tasty. Nice hospitality :) Definitely will back here when we visit Postdam in the future.
