This cute little Arabic restaurant is tucked away on a little cobble stone street between Schanze and Karoviertel. As you enter the bistro, nestled in a row of beautiful art deco buildings, you’ll notice the wonderful mosaic décor on the floor, and the friendly faces of owner Fariz and his staff behind the counter. Their warm welcome extended to all their patrons creates a very hospitable atmosphere.
Make yourself comfortable in the dining room, and choose from a wide selection of the finest vegetarian and vegan dishes. My favorite is any version of the falafel with creamy hummus, fresh lettuce and vegetables, and a delicious sesame-yogurt sauce. Try the Arabic lemonade or have a freshly brewed mint tea with your meal.
Periodically, they’ll have different forms of entertainment including live music, belly dancing and art exhibits (e.g. photography). This low-key setting with oriental decorations, quick service, and a good-humored owner who prepares and serves the food himself is the perfect change of pace for those looking for something authentic in a casual and friendly environment. Due to its popularity, reservations are recommended on Fridays and Saturdays.
