Appetizers that we tried included tabouli, falafel, humus, and several eggplant and tomato dishes, all served with steaming hot lavash bread straight from the oven... read more

I would never repeat. Very expensive and the service and food quality was terrible. I should have known better than to expect quality Mediterranean food in a tourist area!

We saw this place after having lunch at another restaurant. We just had baklava and Turkish tea. Both tasted great!

We are vegetarian and ate here during our recent Puerto Rico trip - the food was top-notch and in particular their fresh lavash bread was amazing. They brought out fresh bread on request and we just lapped them all up. Their falafel, hummus, baba ghanoush, tabouli were all good as well. And before I forget their decor was very nice... More

This place was excellent. If you are staying in condado the location is great. It's right off Ashford. We got the sampler platter for 2. I can't really remember the name. I went to the website and it is not on the menu there. It had all the different types of meat. I'm sure you can ask the sever, because... More

Dishes were fairly predictable, baba ganoush, hummus, grape leaves, kebabs and so on. Appetisers were mostly $10, which seems high to me for a plate of baba ganoush, or... More
