Not your typical Pita place. The food here is authentic. While the restaurant is a little underwhelming the food is not. The food was great and seemed to be quite authentic is taste and prepartion. Most Pita places are just pitas... this is definatly not!!!

The restaurant is large so it can cater for large & small groups as well as solo diners. I chose the Hommos Special made with chick pea puree with sesam sauce, garlic & lemon topped with beef chunks & pine nuts & served with pita. It was extremely tasty & the beef was perfectly cooked. I then had the Fattoush... More

Fantastic. The food is top-shelf and reasonably priced. Never perused the wine list, but can attest that the Turkish coffee is great. Seems like a great professional or date night spot, and the location is nice.

This restaurant is AMAZING. It is, by far, the best Lebanese food I have ever eaten. Even though we were only in the city a few days, we skipped all the other wonderful restaurants to eat here two nights in a row. The second night, our waitress remembered us and made suggestions based on what we had ordered the night... More

The food was so good. I tried a platter (3 plates). I enjoyed the 3 different meals and the pita bread. Nice, friendly service.

Loved the food. The portions are not over sized or too big but the food was truly great. A wonderful variety of Mediterranean. Very family oriented. A casual yet nice place. The owner walks around and makes you feel welcome. We loved it!

We went to this place and got a Greek salad, hummus and pita, chicken schwarmer, and lamb gyros to go. We walked down a few blocks and ate it at the park. Good service (not super friendly, but good). Excellent food. All dishes had great flavor, meat was cooked perfectly. We travel to the middle east and it's some of... More
