the food was variety and quality was under our expectations

Good but after 10 pm the services bad

Recommended Dishes: salamon

Delicious food,wide variety,amazing ambiance,friendly and professional staff.

Wish they would have the love cooking stations during Ramadan iftar. Was dissapointed to see lack of seafood prawns, no lobster.keeping that aside, overall experience was pleasant

Recommended Dishes: sushi, bbq

Great experience!

We were there for the Arabic brunch and the food variety was enormous! They have the typical Arabic dishes all delicious. But Anise also gives you the classic dishes with a twist like the harrira soup, meat sambousek and the fatteh...The service is also friendly, helpful and unobtrusive...would definitely recommend Definit

Recommended Dishes: fatteh chicken, harrira soup

staffs, taste/selection of food, atmosphere --- BEST!!! 5 stars, cheers :)

A very enjoyable lunch buffet. Excellent quality food plus very courteous and attentive service.
