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. I believe Sabah does everything in his power to do just that, you can see it in every move he makes, and... More

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. I am also a fan of the Iraqi spices and now prefer them even over Persian spices. This is not the Middle Eastern restaurant that will serve Greek and pretend you do not know any... More

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.

Genuinely authentic Mediterranean food - you name it, they have it. The food is delicious and cooked right on the spot. It's been a while since we've been there, but they did not have a liquor license. The owner helped out our soldiers in Iraq and was allowed to come here. He takes great pride in his food. Don't plan... More

Sabah's food is a culinary wonder. The location is a little surprising once you've tasted the food. He cooks, "as if I were cooking in my own kitchen", which perfectly describes the love he puts into the food. An Iraqi refugee, he came here for a better life and, in the process, made our lives better. We have yet to... More

I don't think the food is middle eastern at all(I have tasted the best middle eastern a ton of times). First of all we had to wait an hour for the food and later when we tasted, the rice was stale and the chicken was smelling bad. The salad was so salty and yukkk. This is the first time I... More

Food here is average for Middle Eastern food. Owner is a bit pushy and a bit too boastful. The one thing that bothers me most about this restaurant is the stark atmosphere. White, white, white with fluorescent lights everywhere. Not warm at all, makes you want to leave the minute you get there. Warm up atmosphere and stop bragging and... More
