    Rice not washed very starchy, chicken over cooked. Waiter was a bit rude. Ladies very nice. I did like the area and the decor of the restaurant. Food not great.

    Great food, good price to quality ratio, nice atmosphere and decent service. In the middle of several tourist traps this place stands out. Definitely recommend

    Very tasty food, very good position, but the waiters are kinda slow, it can be better! Very good experience if you are not in a hurry :)

    Most of the dishes were very good. But the falafel was dry and the meat skewers were overcooked and therefore also dry. Fabulous atmosphere, overlooking a canal, so that the dry meat and falafel almost didn't matter.

    Took us 55 minutes to get our main dish. Kitchen way too small for the amount of seating. Food was mediocre.

    The food was relatively good and authentic if not the fact that the are bugs all over the place. We had a cockroach visiting our table. We asked staff to remove him. There were trying with no success. So we left the please without finishing our food and bottle of wine. No apologies was made to us for the "accident".

    Even after reading the good reviews, prior to going to the restaurant I was still curious whether it was going to live up to expectations. To my pleasant surprise the food was just as good as the others said it was - we got the Royal Sham and the mezzes were delicious, the meat was done perfectly, and the portions were plentiful! Will definitely keep this one on the list for the future.

    The food, especially the starters, were reasonable, but definitely not very special. However, the waiters were very chaotic and made many mistakes. The solutions were also not very customer friendly. For example, two of us ordered main courses, and two of us ordered a number of starters AS A MAIN COURSE. The waiter said this was no problem. When the starters finally came without the other main courses, we asked a different waiter if they would come soon. He first said he would check and arrange this for us, and then came back explaining that "in this restaurant we always first serve the starters, and then the mains. This is how we work". :/ :/ :/ I rest my case.

    The sham Syrian restaurant is typical Middle Eastern food, very well done and served with a lot of love and care and attention from everyone. The staff go out of your way to make it a comfortable enjoyable experience. Wish all restaurant staff were like this.

    First of all arrived and it was very smoky as they were having trouble with their grill and they then said that couldnt use it anymore and that is the very reason we went to the restaurant to have a Syrian meal for my Syrians friends birthday Very disappointing meal as we had a diner cadeau voucher and wanted to use it - they said they couldnt take it and that they havent been able to take them since April - however they are still showing on their website They said they would send me the details by email that they have been asking for it to be taken down but still waiting for that email it was for a birthday meal and this was a sad end to the evening as we really wanted to use the voucher.

    The meat skewers taste really good. I also like the playlist, which is full of good Arabian music. The restaurant is a bit smokey.
