I was actually introduced by a dear sister of mine, and I have never been disappointed. An excellent middle eastern menu with good portions and prices. As you are proceeding down Apache Boulevard, and see the Fire Station on the north side of the street, look directly south. It sits back in a strip mall and is sometimes hard to... More

We tried this place on a recommendation from a co-worker. We have been about 12 times and have tried just about everything on the menu. We have are favorites chicken shawarma and grape leaves, we usually share a dish and never leave hungry. Inexpensive and delicious. They also have a store within the restaurant or vice-versa, the price on the... More

This is a small grocery store with a restaurant. Have been going here for many many years. Very close to Arizona State University. Nothing fancy but the food is very good. I like the gyros and kabobs.

WE went back here after 6 years and the place hasn't changed one bit. Was amazed to see no changes in the menu, the servers, the crowd, the food. It was as if we left yesterday. But for a place to remain the same for years and still maintain the clientele can only be the quality of the food. We... More

The place could be a bit intimidating. However, that should not fool you. The food is excellent. Highly recommended.

Locals recommended Haji-Baba and I could see why. The food was amazing. We especially loved the hummus and pita bread. The restaurant is inside a Mediterranean grocery store and is very popular. There isn't much atmosphere, but you don't need it when the food is so good!
