Cuisine Type: Vegetarian & Nonvegetarian

Short Description – In case u r in a hurry:

At the entrance to this super tiny restaurant, is an Industrial Shawarma machine from where customers choosing ‘takeaway’ option can buy their food. There is only one machine & it being Gurgaon, the only meat on roast is chicken.

As we entered the Restaurant on a hot summer day, we were welcomed by the chilled air-conditioning inside & also by a warm welcome smile by the lone server at the place. The seating capacity at this place was looked to be approx. 15. The furniture was all made of pristine white colored cane, beautiful ‘Arabic – look’ pictures adorned the walls & interesting things e.g. traditional hookahs, jars, vessels, traditional lampshades added to the beautiful decor.

The walls were made to look like those inside typical dwellings in the Desert – as if roughly coated with mud & painted white. Little boxy shelves were also made on the wall – exactly the way u see in those desert dwellings.

I must say that the owners of this Restaurant had come across a superb interior decorator / designer who optimized this tiny space into a ‘wow’ ambience Restaurant.

However, I only wish they cud hire a chef of such High Calibre.

Short Description – In case u r in a hurry:

I have never been to the Arab countries & hence have no idea of what an authentic Arab food is / how it tastes. However, when we ate at the newly opened Zaitoon, the food was mind blowing good – Have no clue how authentic it was but the taste was just beyond all expectations.

They have equal number of options for mutton freaks, Chikenetarians & Vegetarians. The little taste of Veggies that I got in our platter was very good.

We went for a Zaitoon Mixed Mutton platter – A ‘to die for’ Mutton Basrawi Tikka, Mutton Baghdadi tikka, a kind of hand-made pizza called Mutton Arayes, Superb Mutton kabab, nice pita bread, hummus, tahini & a really hot chilli dip, a ‘never had it so tasty’ salad, turshi & some unwanted French Fries & Coke!!

Going by the little bits of vegetarian that we had + the overall intent of the guys to really serve good tasty food makes me believe that the vegetarian food is very good as well.
