Nothing fancy about this place but who needs fancy when the food is great and good value too! Some say it’s Turkish food some say Middle Eastern but food of that region are similar anyway. The guys manning the charcoal fire and cash register were Afghan brothers by the way. We’ll be sure to confirm actual origin of food when we see them again.
We had the Chicken Al-Fam with rice which is a grilled half chicken in too many spices to figure out with buttered rice, salad and cucumber yoghurt dip for AUD12 (approx. USD12). Enough for two to share. Also had 2 skewers of the Shami kebab which is a spiced minced lamb which came with lots of Lawash baked flat bread (part pita, part turkish bread), salad and cucumber yoghurt dip for AUD8 (approx. USD8). We had their baklavas (pistachio, cashew varieties among others) for dessert (AUD1.40 / approx. USD1.40 each) which are truly amazing. They also have chicken and lamb kebabs – pieces are chunky, wraps, kurma and other breads which we’ll give a go the next time we’re there.
Totally forgot to take pictures of the food! We finished it before we could take any because the food was that good! Will add that later. EDIT (14 JUNE 2013): Finally got a picture of the food! See below.
