I´m so glad that they were honest! Great ending to a scary situation.
They are an okay restaurant, in my opinion. They have acceptable food as far as middle eastern is concerned, if you haven´t had the real thing. I am of middle eastern descent myself... so my standards are set by the authentic stuff. They are (I think) Palestinian immigrants who came here and opened a restaurant (like so many others), and I don´t think they ran the same kind of business in their home country.
If you were to compare to authentic Arabic-style cuisine, then they are crap. But if you want a quick and cheap meal, they are recommendable. Their lamb shawarma is the only thing on the menu that is constantly excellent. Their kibbe and falafel are decent. But their stuffed grape leaves are garbage.
Stick to the shawarma and mint lemonade.
It´s right in the center of Miraflores, and pretty cheap.
JUST MY OPINION
