Called to reserve for 3 people...I know 3 people right? But I called since it's our first visit and we are not familiar with the place so we had to make sure of its location. We arrived just minutes before the Magrib prayer time and we were greeted by a gentleman in a suit, we were told to proceed upstairs. Good that they do have an elevator since my dad will not make it up using the stairs, bad knee. We are then greeted by the floor manager and showed us our table, all staff are friendly and welcomed us.
Since it's a special occasion, we asked for the house specialty and he explained to us how it is prepared, cooked and served, we also ordered mixed appetizer for 2, Turkish bread (very soft), the fish on a clay pot sautéed with tomato and onions, drinks and big bottled water 1L. For the soda, they only serve small bottles like 200ml, so be prepared for that, and be healthy.
We were given Arabic coffee while we are having our appetizers, not too strong like the usual Arabic coffee that I take. I was surprised and confused though since on the menu it was written mixed appetizer for 2 served with hors d'oeuvres, but there were no hors d'oeuvres only mixed dips, so my dad asked me if that was really our order. When the special food came, I was amazed by how it was served, I have only watched it on videos, so seeing it on actual feels so special.
Food was good, not a wow factor, but palatable. We were advised that the chicken for the house special is salty since it is cooked in the oven with rock salt as a dome so we asked the waiter to scrape the skin out, but the rice stuffing inside wasn't salty so it was balanced. My dad and I loved the Turkish bread, we asked for a second one. After the dinner we had tea to relax. I also tasted the laban and it was nice, not too sour.
Service was excellent, as I've said they are all friendly and well informed about the food, so they give suggestions and ideas to new customers like us. Big thanks to the management.
