The food was very good , service was exellant and quick.
but as i found in Today restaurant when i ordered Lemonade juice ,is that they make it in Erbil very sour obviosely the dont add any water or sugar like my mom does :S
we wenmt in the afternoon , the waiteres were preparing the outsied area for the evening , inside there was only us, as i said before due to the heat they also are full in the evenings , and they have singers . in the end we wereoffered friuts and creamcaramel sweets. just delicious!!!!
Favorite Dish: all of it! we had grilled meat , which was so tender and so was the kebabs.
The food was good . we had shawarma meat and shwarma chicken , Fattoush salad and hommos . When we asked for bread they brought us Tannouri deliciuos bread. i went to the kitchen and they were very kind to let me in and take fotos.
Loved the ambience ,we went at 10 in the evening on a monday and the place was full. you just have to go there, but be carefull it doesnt open before sunset i guess due to the heat.
they have juices, icecreams , shishas (hubly bubly) and the famous grilled iraqi fish called Maskouf.we would like to try it on our next visit hopefully!
Favorite Dish: Chicken shawarma.
Mamounia Sky Bar
Is located on the top (7th) floor of Noble Hotel – at the Ainkawa Intersection on 100M Road – it's one of Erbil's most sophisticated nightlife venues. Expect some of the best drinks and alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails in town, and a variety of international dishes and shisha. Relax on the tunes of the latest lounge music, while taking in the amazing views, from the outdoor terrace, of Erbil's ever-changing skyline. One advice: dress to impress, and bring a lot of cash (the place is not cheap)

Erbil seemed like a culinary desert for the first couple of days. After sunset, not even a shawarma stall stayed open in the bazaar area, so after a long day of walking, I ended up buying junk from the only grocery store I could find still open, followed by a tamarind sorbet in a plastic cup from an ice-cream parlour that was gearing up to close at 7pm. The second night, I had a kebab of some sort from a little grill just off Qalat Street, which, while filling a gap, was hardly an amazing taste sensation. I was about to give up on dining out in Erbil...
Then I met two Syrian Kurds in a park, who had been living here for the past 6 years. They knew the city pretty well, and invited me out for supper...I scoffed at first, it being almost 9pm, a time when the streets around the citadel are all dark and deserted, but they took me to Souk Iskan in the suburbs. Souk Iskan is a long street of wall-to-wall restaurants and cafes, each one packed to the rafters with diners. We ended up in a Lahmacun restaurant, serving the regional version of pizza...very thin bread with a topping of minced lamb, tomatoes and spices, finished off with a bit of Iraqi sauce (a sort of brown sauce with tamarind and chilli). I have no idea how much it cost, as I was a guest and my hosts had no intentions of letting me see the bill.
But yes, Souk Iskan is the place to come if you're hungry in Erbil
Favorite Dish: Ask for Lahmacun (laHH-ma-joon). Vegetarians had probably better try elsewhere, as aside from lahmacun, they only had soft drinks!
