I went here with a few colleagues at their suggestion and it was really wonderful! I had the falafel platter with salad and hummus and it was excellent! The pita was amazing, too. They had chicken and said it was great. Can't wait to go back.

This is our favorite Mediterranean Food Restaurant and my daughter's first restaurant after being away from home for awhile. There is absolutely no ambiance and no wait staff perse, but I'm grateful there are a few tables there to sit and eat. The Lamb and Chicken Schwarma Platters as well as the Kibbies and falafels sandwiches are delicious.

I hadn't been here in a while and so called and ordered lunch to take out to go - Falafel with eggplant. When I picked it up (in about 10 minutes) it was luke warm - sort of soggy - and definitely flavorless. Very disappointed as their food used to be fabulous !

Wow, a friend recommended this place for delicious ME cuisine, and his place hit the spot! Ordered Arabic chicken schwarma, and it was hot, fresh, and the humus and special garlic sauce were out of this world. The side salad was fresh and delicious, too, with a nice, light dressing. I will be back!

I have had a lot of great Lebanese food as my family is from close by and I have some Lebanese family members. This place is OK. We had the falafel sandwich and fattoush/falafel platter. The falafel were tasteless and the whole thing was held together by the fact that the tahini was quite well prepared. OK - could do... More

Great selection of Middle Eastern food and probably the best hummus I've ever tasted. Favorites are the Lamb Shawarma or Lamb Kebobs, but everything we've had is delicious. Try the Kibbee and get some Tahini Sauce on the side for a real treat.

The gyros are made in front of you and the sauces are fresh. The menu has a large selection to choose from and the Baklava is very good. The staff is friendly. A small inside area with middle eastern music playing and music videos that make you feel like your not in Fairfield. Most take the food to go..

Absolutely the best falafel around. The place is nothing to look at, but the food is terrific. The food is made to order, so you may have to wait, but it's worth it. Value is excellent for the quality.

Brings back the memories of food we had while living in the Middle East! Very authentic! The only downsides are the flat breads-not homemade, rather tasteless, but again-the food is great!
