Pretty good phyllo

We stooped here for lunch. My brother-in-law liked the Filet shishkabob. I liked the cheese filled phyllo, but not the one with chicken filling had raisins and cinnamon--tasted weird. The lemon soup was good

Stopped by after meandering on College Ave. in Berkeley. Food smelled amazing, lemon chicken soup sounded perfect on a rainy afternoon and the menu/specials were mouthwatering! We ordered two lunch specials of lamb kabobs and the chicken sampler plate. The hummus was spectacular, the Turkish coffee was wonderful and the lamb was savory. Server was super kind and helpful and... More

The food was excellent. The server was lacking. My group thought they were more into texting their friends than offering service. They have covered outdoor dining which is nice. I would go back and hope I get another group servers.

I have been here lots of times and went back this week for a trip down memory lane. The food was good as it had been before, and the environment was still hopping. There were some new faces in the restaurant but the menu was the same so it brought that same level of 'comfort' in the place. I used... More

It is really easy to do Mediterranean food poorly-- as evidenced by the innumerable strip mall fast food kinds of places. On the other hand, this food was amazing. Every element was delicious and divine. We had a huge catered wedding with almost every dish--chicken and rice, all the appetizers, hummus, tabbouli and really almost every menu item. It was...

This restaurant can be counted on for reasonably priced and delicious meals. The menu, which is based on Armenian-Mediterranean food, never changes, and the quality of the food is unwavering. The atmosphere is simple and has also not changed in 20 years, except the the restaurant expanded into an adjacent storefront because it is so popular. There are tables on... More

A nice place to have a bite and spend time in conversation. Quick and attentive service... Great variety of items to choose from, depending upon how hungary you may be at the moment.

This restaurant still provides fresh, generous food prepared with care. The core dishes - especially in the vegetarian platters - of hummus, baba, potato salad, etc, are really delicious.

I've have had a lot of great Mediterranean food : sadly, none of it was here. The meal started with slow but polite service and lukewarm water. The hummus was decent but the pita was deplorable. Not sure what the dressing was on the salad- it tasted like Kraft French (I would at least expect a nice oil/vinegar/ mint with... More
