"Manakish, also manaqish, manaeesh or manakeesh or in singular form man'ousheh is a popular Levantine food consisting of dough topped with thyme, cheese, or ground meat. Similar to a pizza, it can be sliced or folded, and it can either be served for breakfast or lunch. The word manaqish is the plural of the Arabic word manqūshah (from the root verb naqasha 'to sculpt, carve out'), meaning that after the dough has been rolled flat, it is pressed by the fingertips to create little dips for the topping to lie in……Traditionally, Levantine women would bake dough in a communal oven in the morning, to provide their family with their daily bread needs, and would prepare smaller portions of dough with different toppings for breakfast at this time".

We currently operate 11 restaurants in Riyadh Saudi Arabia & are embarking on an aggressive expansion plan what will see our brand expand regionally & internationally
I believe in an old saying, "Every worthwhile accomplishment, big or little, has its stages of drudgery and triumph; a beginning, a struggle and a victory", for with the exercise of great will, and an adamant desire to succeed, Manoosha has certainly come a long way from its humble beginnings as a single unit venture in Suleimaniyah-Riyadh, and expanded into a fully fledged chain of restaurants, becoming one of the most respected brands in the food industry. I believe it is the ongoing urge to reach our true potential that drove us to success, yet it could never have been achieved if we were not constantly tuned to the rhythm of the people. For as long as there is quality food and people with refined taste, we have a calling!
However, the measure of our success revolves around the level of service we offer. A highly trained crew being a part of this service, we have made sure to commission the most competent of employees, to invest significantly in their professional training and to have our managers continuously circle the grounds of all our outlets, constantly guiding our staff to maintain the best levels of customer care.
Founded in Riyadh in April 2001, the "Manoosha" concept stemmed from natural and simple ingredients. "Manoosha" sought to offer traditional Middle Eastern favorites through a trendy, fast casual dining establishment.
The founders of "Manoosha" were two Saudi entrepreneurs with a passion for food and a notion of establishing a leading Middle Eastern restaurant chain. They created a concept that revolved around dough and stone hearth cooking; hence the name "Manoosha", chosen to enumerate one of the first Levantine traditional meals.
The founders' idea was to combine traditional and modern cuisine through classic dishes and signature creations; reviving old recipes of Manaeesh and Fukharat, naturally using only fresh ingredients, baking them in stone ovens and serving them in a contemporary setting.
Yielding success, "Manoosha" became the leading Manaeesh restaurant in Riyadh, branching out to several different locations and attracting large crowds of people who appreciated traditional food of the best quality and taste.
Today, "Manoosha" has established itself as a market leader in the Manaeesh business with its commitment to delicious food and superior service.
