This is one of my favorite places to go for middle eastern food. The staff is great just like the food. Large portion sizes means you will be bring some of what ever you order home. You cannot go wrong here.

This restaurant makes the best humus I've ever tasted. Their lamb chops are also great. I really liked the atmosphere and the service and will try to come back again whenever in Chicago.

Out of the many Mediterranean restaurants I've eaten at in Chicago, or the Chicagoland area, this by far my favorite. I generally order the lamb chops and it's always cooked to perfection.

I think starting from the manager who was rude and arrogant when I asked if I can sit at another table - and there were many vacant spaces... More
