Village Voice's Description

Go for the salta at this venerable Yemeni eatery: One of the most popular Yemeni dishes, it arrives at the table in a hot iron pot, the reddish broth within bubbling fiercely. The hearty potage is thickened with mashed vegetables like potatoes, carrots, and okra, flavored with the bitter green fenugreek, and enriched with bits of lamb. A giant round of bubbly, char-spotted flatbread comes alongside, and is wonderful dipped in the stew. As an appetizer, you can't do better than fassolia, a delicious dish of white beans cooked with tomatoes, onions, and optionally, egg. It tastes like much more than the sum of its parts.

    One of my favorite places to eat. Delicious lamb dishes, large quantities for a good price. Very nice workers. The tastiest tea. Parking not the best but close to transportation. A great neighborhood.

    Barebones-casual Middle Eastern serving food that's soulful, delicious, and a great bargain.

    Our food critic Robert Sietsema says the Haneez is so tender and flavorful that “a toothless guy could enjoy it.” It’s ranked number 2 on his top lamb dishes in NYC.

    Delicious babaganoug and hummus! Puffy bread they serve with it is dangerously good.

  • Mahmood on 12/27/12

    The best Arab restaurant in Brooklyn!
