I had a hotel just up the street and walked over for dinner. Funky Middle Eastern decor was fun, and the hostess and staff very welcoming. I had the hummus appetizer which was HUGE! Nice bread was delivered with a garlic butter spread that was delicious. I should have stopped ordering right there. Foolishly, I ordered the Lamb Shish Kabob... More

I've been here about a dozen times. The food is always delicious. I've had a couple of mediocre servers and some excellent ones. The decor is nice. Overall I think it's a good value.

We were so impressed with the food at this restaurant. The pitas are made as you eat and served hot, the fattoush salad had an amazingly delicious dressing and the various sandwiches were large and yummy. There were many selections and the chicken with veggies and rice pillaf rolled in the delicious thin flatbread was outstanding. The hummos and meat... More

We had a wonderful lunch at Palm Palace. The decor is loads of fun...very interesting....it would be great to go back with a group of friends and have one of their group meals. Our table was near the fire-fueled oven they bake the pitas in...was fun to watch and even more fun to eat the big bowl of fresh pitas... More

I visited a couple of weeks ago with a group of friends. The service was outstanding. The waiter was extremely attentive. The food was somewhat disappointed. I had a combo platter with chicken and beef. Both of the meats were dry and cool. It was if they had been sitting around for some time before being served. The portions were... More

We ate here for the first time on Saturday, January 24, 2015. My son, my husband and I stopped in for lunch. The food is amazing! The best crushed lentil soup I've ever had. The Turkish coffee was great. Honestly, the best middle eastern food I've ever eaten. The humus, the garlic paste, the bread, the fried kibbie, the grape... More
