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.

We have tried to go in to this restaurant three times. Each time they have been closed. We were in a few weeks ago on a Saturday night and they close at 7:00???? We would love to try it but for a weekend place, you need to go somewhere else. They are closed on Sundays too.

Good food and good value. This is a small, hole-in-the-wall cafe located in the Ray's shopping center, next to Radio Shack. You order and pay at the counter and they bring the food out to your table (or make it to go). Good gyros, chicken breast sandwiches, falafel balls and very hot & spicy 'atomic mushrooms'. All well prepared with... More

The food here is so yummy, but then again its the only Mediterranean cafe I've found on the North Coast. I love the fried Haloumi cheese and chicken kebab with pita. My only complaint is that you have to order everything extra on the side. But happy at least its there :)

The place was packed with locals when we arrived at lunchtime. But the staff were apologetic and very friendly. The place was small but we were able to get a table. We ordered a falafel sandwich, vegetarian kebab skewers , and gyro sandwich. All were delicious. We loved the spices on the kebabs and next time will order the mushroom... More
