As such, they can make their taste buds travel while staying in their country.

One of the talentuous chefs, Zahir Karbaly, explains that they work exclusively with fresh, local as well as imported products. The ingredients are carefully selected to provide the best quality and ultimate taste of the Middle East culture to customers. Another special thing is the pita bread, which is prepared in an authentic oven and above all, the spices are judiciously used so as to remind us that every bite is an invitation to flavors.
