Rack of lamb skewer was incredible! House salad was very nice; my dining companions had the borscht and reported it to be quite good. A great dining experience from start to finish.

I ate here tonight with two friends. I have eaten several times at this restaurant and have always found the food to be quite good. I usually get the chicken skewer, but tonight I had the dolmas. Again, a very good meal. I love their rice, very light and tasty. My friends also enjoyed their meals as well. For dessert... More

The service was greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!!!! Linetta? She's the perfect server. The food was delicious. Chose the plate with 5 different appetizers. It was a good choice. We had the chicken in garlic butter sauce with saffron rice. It was delicious. Chicken slightly dry, but overall a great dining experience. Belly dancing is Saturday nights. Dined on a Friday evening--womp! Take someone... More
