After a day of shopping at Wafi, this is a great place to unwind and dine. The restaurant offers the full gamut of Middle Eastern cuisine, from Lebanese, Persian and dishes from the Gulf to Egypt and Moroccan. The Persian sajeit shrimps starter bursts with the garlic, onion, coriander and chilli flavours it’s marinated in. Mop up the juices with the freshly-baked fluffy breads. The Moroccan tagine berbere should also not be missed. Wash this all down with a subtly sweet sugar cane juice, which comes highly recommended by staff and for good reason since it’s utterly refreshing. Khan Murjan is certainly worthy of repeat visits to try this restaurant’s wide ranging regional menu.
Open daily 10am-1am. Wafi, Oud Metha (04 327 9795).
