Great quality food, quite a find in an area with not too many good places to eat. Flavours are delicious, freshly cooked bread, perfectly cooked hallumi, great service and bring-your-own.

I've been meaning to write a review for Ariana for quite some time and somehow kept forgetting. And shame on me, because Ariana deserves LOTS of praise.
