I went in with a friend and had several different items,most I had never tried. We were very pleased with the flavors of the spices.My favorite part was talking with the owner who has traveled the world and has wonderful stories.

This place is a triple D find. Not on diners, drive - ins, dives but totally should be. Totally a dive, but great food. Get the gyro take it easy on the spice. When he says spicy he means it.... Great red sauce just spicy.

This food is amazing! Get the gyro plate & some hummus... maybe some dates for dessert. Totally worth it and a nice little spot to take a date.

I am getting better at checking places online before I spend my hard earned money. What I have learned, not only on food, but life itself, is that you can never please all the people all the time.

This restaurant is consistantly excellent. It may not appear great from its location and building, but this is some of the best food in Abilene.

The restaurant is located in an unassuming location in a strip mall and it's literarily a one man show. The owner does everything - serve, cook, clean the place etc. Be prepared to wait... But I have to say, the food was worth it. Maybe the best falafel I've ever had.

This place has never disappointed me, I have been here three times and the food is just delicious. The owner is always taking care of the customers and the place is somehow clean you can say. The prices are a little bit on the expensive side but it is worth every penny you spend there.
