When one of my office colleague brought kunafah i had to know where he bought it. It was not overly sweet, the texture and crunchiness was devine. i had to buy and let my wife taste it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO THOSE WHO HAVEN'T TASTED KUNAFAH.

Ordered a plate of the crispy kunefah after hearing about how this was the best place to get it and we weren't disappointed. Just the right balance of cheese and sweet syrup, it went down well with people who were not at all sure they...More
