Village Voice's Description

The first Yemeni restaurant to open outside of downtown Brooklyn is also the most comfortable, with curtained booths at the back for observant families, and a menu featuring wonderful roasted lamb. Most meals begin with a free consommé and salad, and huge rotis -- delivered hot and charred from the oven. Haneez is an assortment of lamb cuts, but you can also opt for the set of five lamb chops, both shareable entrees inexpensive by most standards. The foregoing represents Yemeni banquet food, but there"s home-style fare as well, including saltah (a bubbling stew with a fenugreek emulsion on top, dip your flatbreads) and asseed, a giant dumpling swimming in broth.
