The atmosphere was very welcoming. The staff very accommodating. The meal was delicious. I had the Falafel burger with rice. The waiter suggested Lebanese rice which sounded good. It was a phenomenal meal! My husband & daughter had Lasagna. It was "The best Lasagna we have had in a restaurant." We will recommend this restaurant to everyone we talk to.... More

We had kafta and middle eastern rice and the appetizers that come with it. Very tasty and enjoyable. Good portions. Will go back and eat the same dish again. A little pricey!

Service was painfully slow despite having ordered the special of the night. And after the extremely long wait the food was less than average and the portions were... More

this is where the locals eat.some great dishes like the fish and chips ,and some near misses like the ribs and scallops.the staff could not be friendlier,and you can see the regulars are treated like family.can be a little pricy for what you get.
