Saj Al-Reef Restaurant

Saj Al-Reef, as the name reflects, uses Saj (a bread-type dough placed on a domed metal griddle and baked over a wood fire) as a main ingredient in many of its dishes, being a healthier alternative to regular bread. Over time other influences have been adopted and the menu now includes Saj sandwiches, Mexican dishes, Indian and other ethnic foods.

Be sure to try some of the typical dishes and snacks, such as falafel, dolma, biryani and pita with hummus.
