Best Ever!

Best Middle Eastern food I have ever eaten! So fresh and flavorful. It's also very inexpensive. My favorite is the Mayo Platter

Best Mediterranean food around! I love their petra platter and falafil salad. Have been a regular for years. Love everything about this place. Food, people, atmoshere, etc. Their hummus is the best! And don't forget to get a turkish coffee!

I'm absolutely obsessed with this place. It's tasty, authentic, and has plenty of vegetarian options. If you want to eat like a local - this is the place to be. It's also really reasonably priced - I ate for $7 and had leftovers!

Although their schedule is not the best I like that everything is made in front of you, they have lunch specials and great lemonade!

My fiance took me here when we first met. I was surprised how small the restaurant is, but the food is absolutely amazing! We have been coming back ever since and will continue to do so. My fiance's favorite dish is the Mayo Platter. I have tried just about everything on the menu, and I have never been disappointed. The... More

Very nice lunch. I am not a fan of Middle Eastern food, but they hd a salad that was perfect for me. Other members of our family, one who is from the middle east said it was excellent. The service was awesome. Great place for a quick lunch!

authentic Jordanian food, not many tables or places to sit or stand. You wait outside the restaurant while your table becomes available. We had hummus, gyros, foule, falafel(very small), pita.

This is the best. And the prices are great. Hard to get a seat at times. worth the wait. They have platters with most of the items on the menu.

This is a great place for vegetarians with a large portion of the menu just being that way without a special section. The only thing, the Turkish Coffee is like syrup it's so strong, and very sweet, so beware. The place is also tiny, tiny. Probably like three or four tables and bar seating if I remember. But the food... More
