The food was excellent, the owner and staff were great. After being in Costa Rica for a week what a treat to eat such comfort food. I would recommend coming here to enjoy the wide selection of excellently prepared dishes. Very fresh, good portions and a value for your dollar.

A nice change from all the Tico food we have been enjoying. Everything was very fresh and tasty. The chicken shawarma was very good. We had heard that the lamb chops are a top choice but they were not available the night we were there. The choice on the children's menu was excellent. The only disappointment was frozen papas fritas-... More

Great little spot. Order a pita, and select from a big variety of fillings. Very clean, fast, and efficient. Easily ranks in the top 10% of Middle-eastern places we have eaten in (on 3 continents). Something to please anyone! Nice seating areas indoors and outdoors.
