MashaAllah! We enjoyed the car show out front and the wonderful food inside. Nice family setting! The price was great. Parking was easy. This is a good meal in the city before heading home.

Pizza is always great ( house pizza & cheese pizza )! Lamb kebab a bit tough but great taste. Baba ghanush is my favorite. Just the right touch of garlic!

Walking back to my parking space from the XL Center I stumble upon this great little place. I wasn't brave enough to try some of their Mediterranean cuisine (not at 11pm anyway) but the pizza was like none I had ever eaten. Huge slices and paper thin but not with a crunchy crust. You could actually taste tomato in the... More

Terrific food. Location is tucked away on a side street, but if you find it it is a great place for lunch.

Very good arabic food served in a certified halal establishment. Chicken shwarma and falafel were both excellent and salads were fresh and tasty. You could do much worse in downtown Hartford.

I ate here years ago and stopped going due to dirt or grit in the falafel. I tried it again today, the falafel has no flavor and every bite has grit or dirt in it. Maybe the grit is in the lettuce, but I find it amazing that after all this time it is the same issue.

Simple place that has amazing middle eastern food. Hummus is fantastic plus you get plenty of the real pita, not the fake stuff from the supermarket. Their kabobs and falafel is tasty, too. They also serve pizza, which is surprisingly good, too. Hidden gem!

Have been here a few times; a friend does not drink alcohol so this halal restaurant is ideal. The décor is clean but uninspired. The staff are quiet and not extremely outgoing; it may be cultural uneasiness as I observe that they liven up a bit when Middle Easterners come in. And I also find, if you smile at them... More
