I have lived long in the gulf countries and had and still have family from the sham countries "Al Sham (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine Country's)" who are the heart of their delicious shami dishes, the is one of the few places where you have a real shami chef with all the skills to craft the best of Al Sham.

My friends and I dined on the Syrian lentil soup and a mezze consisting of grape leaves, tabouli, hummus, and babaganoush. Another friend ordered shawarma. Everyone enjoyed the tasty food, friendly service, and cosmopolitan atmosphere. It was reasonably priced and clean with comfortable seating.
