For Beverly Hills this place is the best. Simply great food at extremely good prices and lovely staff who go out of their way to offer good service. I recommended it and my mate also loved it and has also passed it on.

We came here early afternoon on a Sunday. Seemed very busy but they were able to seat us right away. The service was very good and the staff was always on top of the empty dishes and drink refills etc. My husband and I both ordered the chicken kebab with rice - one with Caesar salad and one with avocado,mr...

I was wandering around Beverly Hills, passing on one over priced, overly fancy restaurant after another. Saw this place on the corner, and Middle Eastern sounded good. Also very busy on a Thursday night.....good sign. Sat at the bar/counter. Great menu. Paninis of course, great selection of middle eastern, pasta, really anything you would want. Great for people watching as... More

Found this by chance when visiting L.A. early November 2014 and found to be the best value of all restaurants we used in San Francisco, Vegas and L.A. Good menu, I had Moussaka and friend Chicken Kebob, boh good portions with lots of salad. Very reasonably priced food and wine, well worth a visit. Company also has other restaurants in... More

This Mediterranean style restaurant offers some of the best value food in Beverley Hills. The portions are large and the quality is good. it is not fine dining but the food and wine are reasonably priced by comparison to their neighbours. Well worth a visit.

Consistently good and cooked in a healthy way, for example potatoes are baked instead of fried. You can order pretty much anything off the menu and feel good about what you're eating. The staff is really friendly and attentive, the flavors rich and meal portions large enough to be a meal without being excessive.

Stopped for a salad a sandwich for lunch in this busy restaurant. Somewhat surprised about the high praise reviews for what is a pretty standard restaurant. Can't say I would recommended it.

We took our usual morning walk - this past wknd in LA around our hotel (Beverly Hilton) and ended up at this awesome restaurant. The menu had many choices. Sitting outside at a cafe for breakfast on a gorgeous day is the best! I have eaten lunch from here before...excellent salads & sandwiches as well!

Nice place. Lovely food and big portions. They need to be a little cleaner. the service is fine but they need to be more attentive to customers. you have to wait till your waiter pays attention to you. I know it is by rule that waiters not serving your table won't help but we had to wait 10 minutes to... More
