My husband and I were short on time so dropped in for a light lunch that could be served quickly. Our waiter offered suggestions and we chose the cold plate that included hummus, baba ghannouj, taboule and stuffed grape leaves. It was served with pita and turned out to be the perfect thing. We liked it so much that we... More

that I cringed each time she came to the table. Food very tasty but not particularly attractively served. The lamb pita wrap was just that...a wrap spilt in half sitting lonely on the plate; the salad was dressed greens served in a side bowl. The Lala chicken, a house specialty, was well-spiced and moist. Instructed to pull the meat from... More

Ate there last night When in Mystic Seaport this is a must. Rivals El Basha in Worcester Mass on food but wins easily on great service. Family owned and lovingly operated. Paul

The food is delicious! Best Middle Eastern food I have had. And, after eating here, my husband went from not liking Baba Ganoush and Tabouli to liking it! Prices high for the portion sizes - this place is not cheap!

Stopped by on a beautiful day. Happy that they had outdoor seating.We went for lunch and there was no wait for a table. They had tables in the sun and some with umbrellas for shade, but after this winter we chose the sun. The waitress was very prompt and knowledgeable. I am familiar with mid eastern food but my husband... More

Short wait time and everything was perfect. The owner took time to make recommendations and show us how it is meant to be eaten. The staff was some of the best wait staff I have ever met. The food was delicious. I've never had Lebanese food but I'll look for it wherever I go. I'm sure it won't come close... More
