I love this little place. Not much to it, some cheesy decorations but I don't come for the view I come for the food! Super fresh, big portions. Great Greek choices and burgers. I love their gyros Try the atomic mushrooms. They are the bomb!

I asked one of the waitresses if they could make me a vegetable kebab without the onions because I am allergic to onions. First she said she isnt allowed to make accommodations THEN he reason changed to she just didnt want to because... More

I really enjoyed our lunch- we were tempted in by the thought of falefals and giros. Altho a small place, the food was really great. My giro was perfection, and my partner's chicken kabab was huge and so tasty with a great smoky flavor. You get your money's worth, and it's not too peppery to enjoy. It was just down... More

Looks like a dump from the outside, but we trusted the reviews we'd seen here and were pleased with what we got. Very casual to say the least, but very solid Middle Eastern food. Service decent given the circumstance. Also once you get inside, the area around the tables is nicely decorated.

In the late afternoon, tables were already occupied and people were busy eating and chatting -- friends and families were gathered and seemed to be familiar with the cafe.

A small location in a strip mall on the north end of Arcata, CA. The food is average for middle eastern style. Prices are reasonable.

We stopped at this store front restaurant for a late lunch. Walk up order service. Staff was pleasant and friendly. Wife had lamb kebab - which was pretty good. My pork kebab was OK. Had rice and other side dishes. Reasonably good experience for a quick lunch. The only distraction was the panhandlers - they call themselves Young Hippies -... More

We liked the fact that this cozy restaurant had very authentic foods, prepared fresh. There is a great assortment of menu items which was nice. The wait is a little long, but since I was getting freshly made food, I didn't mind.
