What we loved

IMG-20151218-WA0018The Middle East is a rooftop restaurant—lovely for sitting under the sun during winters, or on a full moon night in the summers. The restaurant is run by Arab expatriates, so you know the food is going to be authentic. What struck us the most was their warmth and the way they make you feel welcome. This restaurant is mostly frequented by foreigners, the food is fresh and the service is prompt; what’s not to love?

We would recommend you try the falafel and all the dips. Our favourite was the garlic cream and the pickle. Another to-die-for speciality is the Grilled Chicken, which is served with garlic cream, pickle, humus and salad. We also hear good things about the kebabs.

What didn’t impress us

We were quite taken by the location; it’s absolutely off the beaten path, but it is also pretty far. Once you find the place though, it’s worth it.

What is the best time to visit?

We would suggest visiting the restaurant during the day. That’s when all the desserts are freshly prepared.


For those who love hookah, the restaurant stocks a large number of them, in multiple shapes and sizes.
