Very good Middle Eastern food.

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.

We have dined here 3-4 times in the last one year since moving to Manitou Springs. It is our "go-to" when we have family or friends in town. Have yet to be disappointed.

I had lunch with my mom there and we split an appetizer and an entree. It was plenty of food for two people. Very well made hummus and baba ghanoush. The seasoning on the meat was wonderful. The interior wasn't anything fancy, but the food was great, the price was just right for lunch, and the service was great. I'll... More

Dropped in on a very quiet day for a light lunch... had the 50/50 platter between two of us: Baba ghanoush and hummus with four pieces of fulaful. Turkish coffee and sage tea completed an absolutely fantastic middle-eastern treat, which tasted authentic and as good or better than any equivalent in a big downtown restaurant. Friendly staff. Well worth the... More

Great, inexpensive Middle Eastern street food in a diner like setting. We were pleasantly surprised. The server was attentive as well.

We do not like to dine in Manitou Springs. Very crowded, food is high priced, tax is over 9%. Forget it! there are plenty of great restaurants in CO Springs. We also like "Taste of Colorado" in Cascade..

My family dropped in for dinner for the first time at this restaurant. We were seated immediately and served water & our order taken. We waited and waited and waited. We watched 3 different tables seat patron who ate and left before we were served. We explained this to the first waitress and were told that "...it was the cook."... More
