Arabian food is some of the most sensual in the world. The food exudes rich flavours and it appeals directly and unashamedly to the senses of smell, sight and taste. The dishes on our menu incorporate some of the culinary influences of the ancient trading routes in the countries that now make up the Mediterranean & Arab World: the Levant areas of Lebanon, the North African â€˜Maghrebâ€™â€™ countries including Morocco & Tunisia; Syria; the Gulf States; and others, including Turkey, Greece & Egypt. Eating is considered serious business and food should be eaten leisurely, in dignified surroundings and served with formal elegance - although the actual eating of the food may appear less genteel to Western eyes. Hospitality is a stringent duty all over the Middle East and the ultimate aim of civility and good manners is to please oneâ€™s guests. The very act of eating a traditional Arab meal imparts a vision of days gone by, a simple pleasure uncomplicated by cutlery. Traditionally chunks of bread are used to scoop up food from the communal dish(es), or the thumb, forefinger and middle finger of the right hand used â€“ (eating with one finger is considered a sign of hatred, to eat with two shows pride, and with four or five fingers is a sign of gluttony). A number of dishes are placed on the table and everyone shares and helps themselves directly. Indulge & Enjoy!
