Great menu. Variety for all, even kids.

Delicious authentic middle eastern fare in a clean casual setting. Great for kids. Kids menu is creative and offers standard kid friendly fare. Shwarma is tasty and the platters are large enough for two with an appetizer.

I had heard good things about this restaurant, went there for lunch one day and was not disappointed. I ordered the vegetarian/veggie plate which consisted of hummus, dolmas, pita triangles, tabbuleh, and falafel shaped like little hearts. It was absolutely wonderful and quite filling.

It was a very pleasant surprise to find well cooked and seasoned lamb in Colorado. During the day or for an early supper and before tourist season, it is a nice place to work.

The felafel, in the shape of a heart, is the best we've ever had. The portions were generous and delicious and the service was good as well. It's easy to see why this is a local favorite.

The service was very warm. The food was better than expected and delicious. We had dolmas and the combo plate and enjoyed it very much. The sides and pita were very tasty additions.

Both times I visited the food was excellent. I found the portions very large. Good reminder of the great food of the Middle East.

We ordered food to-go before heading up Pike's Peak. They took their time, especially given how uncrowded the place was when we ordered. But their Middle-Eastern cuisine was one of the best I've eaten in a long time. Expect to pay $10-$20 a plate.

Best middle eastern food we have had outside the Middle East!!!! Good service. We had the kufta and it was awesome. My wife loves the Dolmas and the humus was great too. Definitely would eat here again. Our waitress was really sweet and very efficient.
