    ALHAMRA'A RESTAURANT: UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE

    by DAO Updated Apr 12, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THE FRIENDLY STAFF
    4 more images


    This Restaurant has everything! And you don’t have to speak a single word of Arabic to get a good meal. The Alhamra’a Restaurant looks like a McDonald's Restaurant from the outside and like a Kebab shop in the entrance. Don’t let that fool you. This is a large complex that includes the following:

    • Fast Food (shwarmas, etc.)
    • Full Service, but fast restaurant
    • Family orientated restaurant
    • Lovely garden area with a large fountain
    • Dinning hall for large events
    • Prayer area
    • Clean Toilets and wash area
    • Hygienic cooking areas/staff

    Above all it has great food! And the best part is this:

    Where the cashier is located is one real example of every food item and drink they do, covered up. They do this every day. You can see what they make, as they make it, and the price is written on each one. Look closer at the 2nd picture. Great food, great prices and the staff could not be more friendly. They do local dishes and do them well. A fantastic experience and worth a visit. Enjoy.

    Favorite Dish:
    I am not normally a lover of Lamb, but the oven roasted lamb was excellent and a kebab here is to die for. Everything is made fresh and hot. Ask the staff if you can take a picture and they will pose for you!

  • Monaco Palace: Best in town and brand new

    by hongkong88 Updated Jul 7, 2010

    This place has a steakhouse, middle eastern restaurant, coffeeshop and a real bar in one well secured compound. The place has a good German manager, Robert. I had the middle eastern food, pasta and a great steak sandwich on various nights. The bar was a great place to listen to music or watch TV and kill some time chatting up the waitstaff. The drinks were about 50% of the price you pay at the big hotels.

    Favorite Dish: Steak sandwich, pasta carbonara.

    Al-Shaibani Restaurant Super Deluxe: Great food and fixed price

    by springreen Written Sep 20, 2009

    'Shaibani' is a region of Yemen that is famous for its food and cooking. So basically 'Shaibani' is the equivalent of 'good food'. However, as 'branding' is not on the top of the list of most Shaibani restaurant owners, they all call themselves 'Al-Shaibani' and you as a foreigner can hardly tell them apart.

    But this one is very famous among locals, and hence it's called 'Super Deluxe'!

    Nice modern interior, clean tables and floors, good service, food comes very quickly. English menu (although not always make sense!) Very reasonable price, tasty food. We went there three times during our visit to Sana'a.

    Favorite Dish: Banana with bread, Dates with bread, Shafu, Leg of lamb on saffon rice, grilled fish and mixed seafood

    PALESTINE RESTAURANT & BROAST: FAST (STREET) FOOD

    by DAO Updated Mar 17, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    These guys are pretty good. Need a quick bite to eat and a cold drink while you are out? The friendly outside staff in their clean uniforms will have you on your way in no time. Stop in a grab a table if you want to rest your feet. Cheap, good and fast. On a hot day they also have that needed cold drink as well.

    Please note: There are several places with the name ‘Broast’ displayed and the exact same coloured uniforms. I think they may be owned by the same people and they have the same food. I ate at just about all of them!

    al deewan: my favourite restaurant

    mix grill
    1 more image

    A wonderful restaurant with helpful staff and a great cosy garden, where you can also eat (and have a shisha). Definitely my favourite restaurant - and very much family oriented... Which means a woman is not looked at all the time.

    Favorite Dish: The mix grill, despite being served with french fries, was delicious. Even better, however, was the lemon and mint juice... really refreshing. To die for...

    Al waleema: lebanese and yemeni food

    by call_me_rhia Written Mar 7, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    quite tasty...

    Al Waleema Restaurant: Lebanese and Yemeni food - not memorable but not bad either. We ened up there because Al Fakhir was fully booked on that night... and we were just lucky since Al Fakhir proved to be totally disappointing.

    The restaurant's interior is quite "grey" "and "cold"... impersonal to the point that oen does not want to linger on after the meal - it comes as no surpise that many people just use it as take-away.

    Favorite Dish: The best was the manakish - quite tasty and spicy. The big let down is that our food came with nasty (and unwanted) French Fries

    Zorba's: Illy Coffe

    by xaver Written Mar 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    lemon juice

    This is a greek restaurant in Habba's street.
    We went here a morning just because we've read they served illy coffe and were curious to see if we could get a decent espresso in Yemen after we miserably failed in Dubai.
    The cup was illy, the coffe I have no idea as it was totally tasteless but we got an excellent lemon and mint juice.

    Favorite Dish: Lemon and mint juice.

    Yemenite soup

    We tried to vome in this restaurant our first night in Sanaa as it looked really nice but it was full, so after a few days finally we got to have our typical Yemenite dinner in here.
    We asked for some grilled lamb which was served no more than 2 minuts after our order, so two options: it was raw, it was cooked way before we asked for it.
    It was not raw so, they just had their menu prepared and you eat something cooked hours before, infact the taste was nothing good.

    Favorite Dish: No favourite food, the lamb was bad and the typical Yemenite soup too spicy to have any taste.

    la pizzaiola: when a lebanese decides to make pizzas

    by call_me_rhia Written Mar 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    xaver's pizza (which was more colourful than mine)

    When a lebanese decides to make pizzas, you can be sure that he'll put the best ingredients on toppings on it - all coming from Lebanon, of course. This new pizza place is owned by a young enthisiastic man from Beirut who aims at making the perfect pizza, eventually.

    Well, it was not perfect, but it was vry good - with maybe a bit too much cheese on top. We were impressed - we thought he had been to Italy. Nope: the Italian ambassador is one of his clients, and he bugs him all the time for feedback, so as to improve his pizzas.

    There are only a handful of tables inside and the crowd is mainly young-ish. It's possibly the only place where we have seen women dining with women-friends - at times even without head-scarf. If the place is full, then don't worry, you can order your pizza "take-away".

    Favorite Dish: All pizzas we had were good - as said before with a bit of cheese too much. Kind of heavy, at night - either share one with someone else /it's enough for two people) or have a pizza napoli since it has no cheese.

    Al- Fakher: a place I would not recommend

    lamb and rice: cooked in 2 minutes

    From the outside, I mean the architecture, it's a wonderful restaurant... Inside the decor is even more scenic and spectacular - in particular the large carved door. Truly a beautiful restaurant. Foodwise, however, it was a real disappointment. The restaurant boasts: nice ambient they serve traditional Yemeni dishes that can not always be found in restaurants, but are traditionally prepared at home.

    In a way, the claim is not untrue... dishes must be (pre)prepared (at home? in the kitcken? who cares?), since it took our meal exacly 2 minutes to reach our table, after we ordered it. Have you ever heard of rice being cooked in 2 minutes? Or meat? It even takes more more than two minutes to warm up already cooked food, at home.

    Favorite Dish: Absolutely nothing - the meat was tasteless, while all the spices they forgot to put on the meat were placed in the soup. Only the rice was edible (big deal...)
