It's a cool place with great food and great prices. The falafel is made right in front of you when you order so great fresh taste. The employes are always nice and pleasant to deal with. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. It's like most other places in that it fills up the later you go but they have... More

The falalafals here are so yummy. They have the best pita bread; great falafals, and a nice assortment of vegetables with the right amount of crunch. You order at the counter; but if you eat at the restaurant they will deliver to your table. They have a nice casual patio area with a fountain - which is nice to sit... More

However, I got there around 8pm and the sauces (milk-based white sauce) was sitting out without ice (I did not get sick though). I also ordered a lamb shwarma, and the lamb was not at all flavorful. It was pretty dry... More

We like this place!! It has an understated ambience and nice outdoor seating. The kafta kabobs are real good! We had the plate form. The shawarma sandwich was not very satisfying - more pita than meat. But we have been here a coupla times and have generally found the food to our satisfaction.

Great falafel and tasty Hummus.The chicken kabob plate is very good too. The baklava is not too great .The consistency of the taste is what makes this place likeable.Never had a bad experience here.

Great falafel sandwiches that you can load up with extra toppings & sauces. It is a good meal. The lentil soup is also very good. Service is friendly & fast.
