I met the owner of the new A Taste of Arabia restaurant in Firth Park on Friday 1st March when they were having their opening day. Gaber Muthana has been in the restaurant business for a number of years and also owns the Red Sea Cuisine restaurant on Ellesmere Road, Burngreave.
A Taste of Arabia is the first Arabian restaurant to open in Firth Park. The building was beautifully decorated and places set out for dining on all the tables. There was a very good turn out for the event, over sixty people. The chef had cooked a complimentary meal for everyone of lamb on the bone with two different types of rice. Mine was superb.
The event was opened by Firth Park Councillor, Abdul Kayum who kindly cut the red ribbon. The menu pricing is reasonable and quite competitive and it is open for breakfast with a number of choices including an English option. Hot and cold drinks are available. The restaurant is not licenced for alcohol consumption.
