First of all, he was out of almost everything. The falafel tasted like sawdust, and the hummus has no tasted. He keeps telling us to get chicken and fries even though we are vegetarians.

The restaurant was out of most items on the menu and they really just wanted to sell us chicken and french fries. Since what we really wanted was middle eastern food, we passed on the high pressure chicken sales job and ordered a few basic middle eastern dishes (veggie platters, falafel, hummus, pitta). The food was terrible (which is why... More

I have now eaten here on 3 separate occasions, I cannot stop myself from returning time and time again. The food is amazing, hands down the best chicken I have ever had. Fall off the phone and super juicy. The owner is such a friendly welcoming guy, so are the rest of his staff and even his friends who often... More

I must be honest i went there because my girlfriend insisted, long timr ago was not good but this is now a diferent place, the new owner and administration is diferent and they made a lot of changes. The quality of food is better and service is great. I hope they continue like this. So good luck and regards.

We ordered vegetarian plates at lunchtime and five minutes later were informed that two of the five portions were not available. So we ordered falafel sandwich instead. Waited 20 minutes and were assured that it was taking a while because everything was being made from scratch. When our orders arrive we were shocked to see the results of the thirty... More

Where to start ? ... Service was awful. We waited about ten minutes and then were told that two of the four items I had ordered , we're not available. Another ten minutes went by and we were told that everything was being prepared fresh and it would be here in two minutes. (There was no one else in the... More

I tried this place with a friend and she was furious about the prices and food. I realized that the price was a bit much, but I would deal with it. However, the amount of food that comes on the plate was a joke. I ordered falafel and hummus and the number of patties and amount of hummus was like... More

Honestly I don't know why lonely planet recomends this place, bad food, bad taste, expensive, bad service. It's a rip off. Nothing good to say.

The owner of this restaurant is beyond rude. My friend and I came here for dinner because it was recommended by the Lonely Planet. We were given menus and ordered Babaganoush, pita, fattoush and chicken kebab. After 20 minutes, the owner then came out to tell us that there was no food left and we had to order the half... More

This was the overall worst dining experience. The owner ripped us off ten dollars. He came back after starting our meals and told us he didn't have the proper sides. He smoked hooka instead of waiting on us. Food took an hour to come out. Food was by far the worst have had here. Music was blasting disco beats so... More
