    This place is so ridiculously delicious and warming. Meals start with warm lamb broth and cardamon tea. Hummus + pita and the Lamb Haneeth are amazing. *no* alcohol.

    The lamb soup to start is incredible and the lamb haneeth is the best! For dessert try the Fatah with honey and cream. So good!!

    Where else can you get Yemeni food? Get the lamb fattah. You won't regret it.

    Great authentic place. Have only been during lunch, but the "Lunch" portions are generous and fulfilling. There wasn't a seat avail on a Friday afternoon, but its just as good at home. Lamb Haneeth!

    Get the lamb salta, the lamb literally falls right off the bone. Also the fattah with honey is the perfect balance of savory and sweet.

    A great place for middle eastern and authentic Yemeni food... Their complimentary soup (marag) is unbelievably tasty to start with. The Yemeni classic boiling hot salta is great with molawah bread.

    The lamb haneeth is ridiculously good, no exaggeration. Meat so soft and juicy, it feels like butter in your mouth. The waiters will keep the freshly baked bread coming, and free chai refills!

    Not sure abt the hype. Haneeth was dry and not huge (there was a ton of rice). People rant abt the free soup/salad but the entree costs $20 for a reason. Go if ur in the hood but don't make a trip.
