We had dinner at this restaurant twice during a 4 night stay in Heidelberg. The food was fresh and delicious and the service was excellent. This place is not touristy and is a very reasonably-priced alternative to other restaurants in town catering to tourists.

Spend dinner here, had the big vegi plate, ayran and some salad. Food was ok but nothing special. Location neat however a bit too crowded for my taste. Service was really nice. Only recommend his place of you want something to go. If you want to sit in there are plenty of other good choices in Heidelberg.

We found this place whilst walking down the main street in Heidelberg, and were drawn in by the display of fresh food and cheap prices. I had the falafel plate, and unlike other falafels iv had in the past they weren't powdery. I had a side order of chips and was expecting them to be greasy but was pleasantly surprised... More

I came here with friends for the first time. The staff was really nice and gave good advice, also to my friends who haven't been sure, what they want to eat. All of them have been really satisfied with their meal and would come back again. I definitely also will come back again. I recommend this place, with no doubt!... More

We went to this place with my wife for lunch as returning customers (we had been there earlier about 10 times). We sat down at a free table, were attended by a waitress, and we ordered two Shawarma wraps and two Ayrans from the menu. The waitress took our order, she went away, and then she came back in a...

We were in Germany for 15 days and tried quite a few middle eastern restaurants, but the meal here was our best. We ordered the lentil soup which was delicious with perfect balance of spices and lemon. Their hummus too was quite nice with perfect consistency. We got grilled chicken with rice and falafels for mains and those were quite... More
